Emotional Geometries: Jorge Riveros at Leon Tovar Gallery, New York

November 16, 2017




Leon Tovar Gallery presents Jorge Riveros’ “Emotional Geometries” at its New York venue.

Jorge Riveros’ “Emotional Geometries” showcases his recent works of constructivist painting, with a clear influence from pre-Colombian art. These works are characterized by being more intense and varied in color. The artist has worked with large format murals and subsequently with stained glass. Throughout his career, he also worked with metal sculptures, and did several projects in that field for public spaces in Bogotá. He developed works from Germany on geometric abstraction, and has done several more works based on his ideas and proposals from that time.


Jorge Riveros studied at National School of Fine Arts (1951-1956) and worked as a teacher at different institutions over the next decade. He had his first solo exhibition in 1960 featuring figurative-impressionist work. The first award he received was at Salon de Artistas Santandereanos in 1964. In 1965, he moved to Germany and did a number of solo and group exhibitions in different cities across the country. In 1969, he ventured into geometric abstraction and joined the group of artists known as “Semikolon,” making numerous exhibitions with the association.
