Opening Reception: Thursday, March 9th,  6 – 8 PM
On view through April 15th, 2017


Art Palace presents works on paper by Rene Cruz in the Project Gallery. Cruz’s drawings function as puzzles with familiar features, skewed just enough to provoke a neurological phenomenon. The human brain connects lines and abstractions with just enough help from our memory and understanding of anatomy. Cruz’s portraits are not illusions themselves; they describe the moment it takes to fill in the gaps.
Cruz lives and works in Houston, TX. His work has been featured in local exhibitions since 2005, including presentations at Lawndale Art Center, The Joanna, and Domy Books. Cruz is a member of the artist collective Sketch Klubb…chances are he’s drawing right now.
