|KIRK HOPPER FINE ART // NOV11 // 6-8PM
Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street), is pleased to announce our upcoming group
exhibition for artists Alejandro Diaz-Ayala, Carlos Donjuan, and Miguel Donjuan entitled Intimate
Interrogation. This exhibit features artwork from three artists who are well known for exploring
themes of portraiture by incorporating visceral mark making, playfulness imagery and
subversiveness. The exhibition opens Saturday, November 11th with a public reception for the artist
from 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.
All three artists’ artwork reflects on their upbringing and the consequences associated with the
marginalization of their community and the stigma it carries. Each artist intimately invites the
viewer to analyze each individual style of portraiture, examining every stroke, color and
composition decision, leading the viewer to interrogate every aspect of the work. As a whole,
each artist’s work is acutely personal, often referencing family and friends in hopes of providing a
better understanding of a community’s marginalization along with its dreams, hopes and fears.
