EXHIBITION: December 1-30, 2022
FIRST THURSDAY ARTIST RECEPTION: Dec 1: 6-8 pm
Linda Hodges Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings from Oregon painter, Gabriel Fernandez. In his most recent body of work, Fernandez evokes feelings of nostalgia through his use of mid-century iconography. He finds comfort in his relationship to objects in this time of uncertainty and unease, which he depicts in Pop Art and Still Life painting.
From a wind-up duck to a rotary phone to PEZ bears to a 45 record player, Fernandez picks up on our need to remember what it was like to live with these objects, and how they still generate fond memories of simpler times.
Born in Caldwell, Idaho, Fernandez received a BFA in painting from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. He has shown in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and throughout Oregon, and lives in Beaverton, Oregon.
“If you’re a fan of Richard Estes or the 1970s Los Angeles paintings of David Hockney, you’ll enjoy Fernandez.”--Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times, 2/9/18
