The Mind of ZEKTAR5000, mixed media collage
The artwork of Rudy Gonzalez is a thoughtful balance of traditional graphic design fused with expressive influences of popular culture and graphite art. Gonzalez’ work can be more broadly categorized as collage, mixing acrylic painting techniques and imagery manipulated through print media. The imagery is often figurative, taken from a collection of printed resources, which provide a kind of narrative.
The narrative aspect of the work is situated around metaphor which allows the viewer freedom to engage the emotional and psychological interpretation of the work from various angles. The subjects might seem aggressive or confrontational, but Gonzalez’ work is more about questioning the power of imagery and how it can be manipulated in our media-driven society.
