The Essential It’s Invisible

Cesar Gonzales Serpa – ‘The Essential It’s Invisible’ at 3345 Parr St
14 Jan – 8 Mar 2009

Went to the Private View this evening and met the artist, Cesar, who is now based in Venezuela.

The photographs were taken using a long exposure, about 20 seconds, with very little light (The Essential) but Cesar would use a small torch or other light source to draw shapes and play with the light.

Many of the faces have been painted quite brightly giving a good contrast with the dark background.

In March the show which was organised by Karen Janody of Creative City moves to Hoxton
