exploring new forms of artistic expression

Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia Vida, Passión y muerte, Los Angeles, CB1Gallery / I attended the show with Howard N. Fox on September 9, 2017
The new show by Los Angeles artist Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia at CB1Gallery reveals this young artist’s endless restlessness in exploring new forms and materials, and suggests that his talents are nearly endless.
Most interestingly, Segovia does not just delimit his religious-like iconography to his own religious practice, but brilliantly borrows from various faiths including Judaism, Catholicism, Native American Indian practices and even the Dutch-hex Signs painted upon the barns of the Amish.
