From Redbud Gallery:
“We Are All Stardust is an interactive art fashion performance event with drawings and signature Elisa Jimenez & The Hunger World™ wearable one of a kind couture, sculptural performative pieces. Luis Jimenez, a long-time amigo, worked in our building for several years. Seldom seen originals by Luis will be on view in our west gallery.
Elisa Jimenez with The Hunger World™ aesthetics will fashion a multi-trans-disciplined portrait and soliloquy of her father, the late great modern neo-Baroque sculptor, artist, activist, and architect of an incredible life which touched countless people and generations. Elisa will create her “Spontaneous Couture” and combine the act with stories of her father. She presents a story of love, loss, and the eternal internal power of the artist to regain beyond the boundaries of flesh.
Luis Jimenez was a voice for the Everyman and a herald and chronicler of the Re-Evolution and his view of people and this country’s transgressions. His works commemorate the injustices via voluminous forms and vibrant colors of life reformed. His art depicts the subject matter in a virulent style, utilizing working class materials such as fiberglass and glistening metal flakes that have been elevated to a high art form. He was part of the Pop Art Movement in its bursting scene in NYC in the sixties. Coined as the “Grandfather of The Chicano Art Movement,” he was a dedicated activist for Art for The People and Nature with his larger-than-life public works.
“I do all with love, therefore there is love in all I do.” – Elisa Jimenez”
