Emilio Lobato
Twin Feather Meditations
Works on paper

May 5 - May 28, 2016

formatting

Emilio Lobato’s latest series, Twin Feather Meditations, explores the concept of Two-Spirit peoples in which certain native American cosmologies embrace transgender and homosexual members as highly spiritual individuals. The soft-edged shapes forming the bodies of these works contrast the hard-edged geometric abstraction seen previously in Lobato's compositions. Drawing on his experience of being closeted for most of his life, and the personal upheaval of coming out to friends and family, these works mark a personal and artistic shift towards a more intuitive, freer practice of creation for Lobato. He has adopted the symbol, or talisman, of the feather to interject a familiar and deeply personal identity into his previously geometric compositions. Created with monotype printing, chiné-colle and colored pencil, these works utilize multimedia layering to create depths in both texture and symbol.

Emilio Lobato is a multimedia artist based in Denver, Colorado. His solo exhibitions include Noche y Dia at Elizabeth Leach Gallery (Portland, OR), Mi Linda Soledad: A Retrospective at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (Colorado Springs, CO), and Tomando Medida at Andrea Schwartz Gallery (San Francisco, CA). His work has been shown in group exhibitions including Abstracts (William Havu Gallery, Denver, CO), 100 Years of Colorado Art (Kirkland Museum, Denver, CO) and Colorado Abstract (Center for Visual Art, Denver, CO). Lobato's work can be found in collections including the Denver Art Museum (Denver, CO), Chicago Public Library (Chicago, IL) and many private collections.
