EXHIBITIONS OF RECENT WORK

Delrey Beach, Florida - The Cornell Museum Exhibition - Now until June 26, 2016; 51 North Swinton Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33444

Located in the Old School Square, this historically significant complex hosts the June 2016 ArtWalk These exhibitions feature the work of regional and national artists and sculptors exhibiting contemporary cutting edge original work as part of the annual ArtWalk program.

Artist Raymond Gomez, recently relocated from New York City to Delray Beach, is among the artists presenting their work. Gomez is an architect, artist and sculptor whose artistic endeavors have paralleled his architectural projects on five continents. He depicts his views of contemporary life, recreated to convey a dynamic version of the subject. He paints in series as ideas come to him. His paintings and sculpture depict dynamic movement, turbulence and occasional wry humor.

In this exhibition, he has chosen some of his Rubber Duck series, depicting a simple child's toy, personifying and enhancing it to reflect a humorous new personality.

Raymond GomezUrban Chaos Series

Raymond Gomez's chaotic cityscapes prove that you can take the man out of Manhattan, but you can't take Manhattan out of the man. Gomez, one of the artists participating in the Family Counseling Services Artists Studio Tour, will be showing his self-described "Urban Chaos Series" this weekend at the Whisper's Gate Gallery at 36 Tuthill Rd. in Remsenberg.

Gomez's series is the logical progression of a lifelong obsession with painting city views. A registered architect, Gomez spent 25 years at the helm of the Mideast offices of Edward Durell Stone in Cairo, Riyadh, Jeddah, Tehran, Kuwait, and Lima…. "In all my travels, I would go to the window of the hotel I was staying in and draw or paint, what I saw outside."

Nothing compared to what he saw from his downtown office window on Sept. 11, 2001. He was horrified but compelled. "I was three blocks from the World Trade Center," he said. "I remember running down the stairs to see what this was. I was about 600 feet from the base of the North Tower. I immediately knew this was a disaster. I knew the architect who designed the towers. I knew the structure of the building. And I knew it would implode and started running down West Street…

The South Tower fell first. Gomez left a temporary refuge at the Holocaust Museum site toward the Brooklyn Bridge as it was the only way out. "At the ramp on the bridge, the narrow streets turned black….the North Tower had fallen" he said

"I think I'm working my way through that in my current work."

He participated in an film event, "An Artist's Sanctuary" , with co-chairs Ronnie Wiener and Candyce Brokaw, in an art commune in 2008, for Family Counseling Services, at the Full Moon Art Center in East Moriches.

Two years prior, he closed his office in Manhattan and moved to Northport to live and establish his studio. Since then, he has shown in Westhampton galleries; The Remsenberg Art Academy; Manhasset; Port Washington; Huntington; and Glen Cove. "I've been selling work off the shelf." The Family Counseling Services Artists Tour is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Pick up maps at the Remsenberg Academy, 130 S. Country Rd. An opening night party will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, where attendees can meet the artists.

Pep Talk"Rubber Duckies and Friends"

Saturday, June 7th 2:30-4:30pm

Raymond Gomez is an artist and sculptor. His paintings, works on paper and sculptures express an illusion of motion, energy, and turbulence. His work depicts views of contemporary life...recreated to convey a dynamic version of the subjects. Gomez paints from his experience as an architect and his observations of structural forms and shapes that he has designed. He has lectured and been a visiting critic in art and architecture at several universities in New York State and abroad.

The Rubber Duckies exhibition is a departure from his recent Urban Chaos Series. He takes the common children's toy, a rubber duck, and personifies it in various settings. This was an idea spawned by observing two ducks on a counter, peering into a mirror, and the reflection looking back at the observer. The simple nature of the subject is enhanced with bold color outlines in the paintings.

Just Lfy Away"Urban Legends"

February 15, 2014 – March 23, 2014
Artist Reception: Saturday, February 15th 3:30-5:30 pm

338 Main Street , Huntington, NY 11743 • 631-427-5165

Raymond Gomez Raymond Gomez is an artist/sculptor and an architect/planner. His art work has paralleled his architectural career of over thirty five years in practice with works throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East and South America.

Gomez paints from his experience as an architect, expressing structural forms and context drawn from observation of his work. He experiments in his paintings with a range of differing techniques; primarily in acrylics and oils, and including a range of collages and other mixed media.

Gomez states…."As an artist, I am drawn to express structural forms and movement in my work. My paintings express an illusion of motion, energy, speed and perhaps turbulence. My work is painted in a representative context; however, I distort the realistic subject to reflect my vision of it.

I paint in series as the ideas come to me. At times, my subject matter appears static as in my Monument Series, but by altering the subject light and mood, it transforms itself to a more dynamic sense of movement. My Racing Series focuses not on racing, but on the dynamic controlled chaos in the car pits.

I enjoy distorting the urban context of buildings by painting an imaginary wind, pushing building forms, distorting the sky, bridge structures and generally reflecting an urban chaotic scene. The Urban Chaos Series combines newsprint collage building, alongside painted buildings swaying in the wind.

Outstanding alum wins contest sponsored by New York art guild

New York Art Guild AwardRaymond Gomez '64, an outstanding alumnus of Texas A&M's College of Architecture, received first-place honors from The Art Guild in Manhasset, New York for his painting "Night City."

Gomez' acrylic on metal piece was chosen as the best work among 60 entries in the guild's "Home Away From Home" exhibit, on display at the Manhasset Public Library through March 29, 2012.

Gomez, who earned undergraduate architecture and construction science degrees at Texas A&M, said he's drawn to express structural forms and movement in his work.

"My paintings express an illusion of motion, energy, speed and perhaps turbulence," he said on his website, which displays more of his work. "I enjoy distorting the urban context of buildings by painting an imaginary wind, pushing building forms, distorting the sky, bridge structures and generally reflecting an urban chaotic scene."

Gomez, who retired as president and managing director of Raymond Gomez Associates, was recognized for his master planning of major resort centers, including the Kuwait City Waterfront Entertainment Complex the El Morro Destination Resort in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela and the Nanshan Mountain Tourist Development Zone on Hainan Island, China.
