Weavings by Armando Sosa & Photographs by Hugo Navarro Hugo Navarro & Armando Sosa

January 9 - May 3

Princeton Public Library

Two artists with a local connection, Armando Sosa and Hugo Navarro, exhibit their work through March. Sosa’s work includes brilliantly colored, hand-woven tapestries and other textiles. In his work, Sosa employs symbols and images derived from dreams and memories of traditional icons and figures, both religious and secular – some dating back to his native Mayan or pre-Columbian heritage, others to actual memories of a Central American childhood. Additional visual influences incorporated into his designs include African textiles, European Jacquard patterns and Renaissance tapestry details.
Navarro, a photographer who was born in Guatemala and raised in New Jersey, will exhibit his “Fishing for a Dream” portfolio.

COMMUNICATION BETWEEN FORMS

My work has been evolving recently to include more layers, more color and more depth. I’ve been continuing the push to step away from the usual process, which was: draw a shape and fill in the shape. Instead, I’ve been creating organic forms, activating the negative spaces, layering and mixing paints all while continuing to think as if the forms were communicating with each other. For a long time I was compelled to create very crisp and clean lines in my work. The “graphic designer”

Nature Restores

When working in plein air I try to convey the sense of peace that I feel when working outside, surrounded by the light that I attempt to capture. Interacting with nature is an invigorating force and landscape painting is a timeless art form that reflects our past, and our future. The changing seasons of New Jersey echo the rhythms of our lives. The interplay between a tree and the sky or light and shadow represent the essence of our natural world that should be cherished.
