    About The Work

    Crowd, a new series of five copperplate etchings, expresses Gonzales’s ongoing fascination with the theme of our culture’s indeterminate mass. These prints show a group of houses (inspired by a Walker Evans photograph from the 1936 series American Photographs), a group of people bathing, parked cars, groups of people sitting and standing at the edge of a forest, perhaps waiting for a concert, a meeting, or a picnic. As with Gonzales’s large scale paintings, these images leave the viewer with more questions than answers. Technically, they are a series of landscapes, however these pictures seem to have been jarringly pried loose from genre and their original contexts—less appropriated than re-authored. In their detached state of beauty, this work suggests a burnished and weary reportage on our collective state of being. For this series of etchings—the artist’s first in over XX years, he applied scratches and cross-hatching directly to the copper plates to provide a diffused sense of light and dark, which paradoxically seems to add detail to the images. The portfolio’s five works take on a surprising and dynamic unity, despite the disparate content seen in each individual “frame.”
