Bruno David is pleased to present Lonchando in the Grass, an exhibition by Florida-based artist Adrian Gonzalez. This will be his first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Adrian Gonzalez speaks and uses the hybrid language of Spanglish — a language spoken commonly in the United States — to reflect cultural interaction that underlies our contemporary moment. He uses the exchange between Spanish and English through playful yet provocative bilingual phrases, expressions, and unstructured ideas of language that are meant to communicate new thinking and describe his work. He associates the combative, improvisatory creation of words with artistic methods in his studio practice to make collage and assemblage paintings, sculptures, and prints from a variety of drawn, printed, painted, sculpted, and found elements.

Adrian Gonzalez, born in California, lived in Ecuador, Puerto Rico, New York, and Florida — each with their own dialects of Spanglish. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis as a Chancellor’s Graduate Fellow, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Central Florida and is attending Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture Summer 2022. He has exhibited nationally at Mildred Lane Kemper Museum of Art and, Orlando Museum of Art. He lives and works in Gainesville, FL.
