Roberto Gómez’s practice interrogates the ways in which quotidian objects and actions structure daily life, and reflect social behaviors. Blurring the boundary between painting and sculpture, he emphasizes the physicality and materiality of paint by utilizing it as a three-dimensional element. Gómez plays with the audience’s expectations by presenting objects made of paint masquerading as cloth, in a configuration more often encountered outdoors than in.
Born in Costa Rica, Gómez currently lives and works in Miami. Gómez has exhibited at a number of Miami venues, and has had a solo exhibition at Art Media Gallery in Miami in 2012. His work was featured as part of Locust Projects’ booth at NADA in Miami Beach in 2014.
