Mercedes Elena Gonzalez

Inspired by cultural and art historical reflections of architecture and modernity, the work of Caracas-based artist Mercedes Elena González interweaves line, shape and color to address the philosophical underpinnings of modernist abstraction. Like blueprints for allegorical framework, González’s drawings utilize graphite, gouache, colored pencil and watercolor to navigate the complexities between visual, social and cultural signifiers of the modern age—offering an imagined blank space for progress. 


González has shown her multimedia works in a number of international exhibitions including Faría Fábregas Galería. Caracas, Venezuela, Signature Art Gallery, Miami, Galería Valu Oria, Sâo Paulo, and The Venezuelan Center Gallery, New York. Group shows include Centro Cultural Chacao, Caracas, Venezuela, Galería La Cuadra, Caracas, Fabulación Museo de Bellas Artes, Caracas, and Instituto de Cultura Mexicano, Washington, D.C., among others. In 2002 she was the recipient of the Grand National Art Prize, Aragua, Venezuela.
