  • art is my journey, the evolutions of my mind and revolution of my soul....

    G Rosario

  • Introduction

    Introduction

    The spiritual life of the Caribbean is reflected in this exhibition, in an aesthetic based on the colors and shapes. Like a personal

    worship culture of Puerto Rico. The one that I think should

    be protected and preserved in order to fulfill its historical

    destiny.

    The paintings are a representation of the

    human character, reflection of my environment and

    experiences. But not only on the island of Puerto Rico

    also draws on the experiences and people who respond

    to this cultural gathering that occurs in the diasporas

    as a conservation model. I focus on the pieces by

    Caribbean spirituality that has a universal aspiration and

    transcendentalism, in a aesthetics what are designed in

    various forms worldwide. Look at the rhythms, color and

    harmony come from the peoples knows that come from

    the paradise. My art is an extrapolation branch of my

    Caribbean island that is a root that holds the culture.

    Biographic

    Born 1969 in San Juan Puerto Rico in 1988 come to be part of the artists on Galeria Latinoamericana by Domingo

    Garcia art direction. Make studies in Liga de arte de San

    Juan. Sagrado Corazn University and Escuela de Artes

    Plstica Puerto Rico.

    In 1996, Gaddier establish the firsts artist

    studio in San Juan Puerto Rico, He perhaps this positioned

    it like one of the first sketcher of professional virtual reality

    in the Caribbean preparing illustrations for architects and

    designers as much at local level as international, standing

    out like photographer, illustrator, graphic designer and

    fine artist.

    He resided in Puerto Rico until he relocated

    to New England in 2004. He has established the Gaddier

    Fine art studio in Massachusett.

    an invitation to a mute world

  • Artist Statement

    Artist Statement

    Search and I search for myself amongst the threads of forms and colors, telling my ideas and ideals in the painting. An

    invitation to a mute world: where you may converse with

    the self that inhabits within each one of us.

    My art is autonomous and eclectic; it is

    polluted through life, rendered sensible to the figures

    and symbols of the era and the signs of time: the raw

    matter that is transfigured by art as an offering beyond

    its immediacy. Always searching to freely capture the

    sensibility that surrounds me and, as its consequence,

    express my own truth.

    Know color and be able to project it with the

    passion of signs from my experiences, is my personal goal.

    A search to domesticate the gammas with the naturalist

    and elegance of abstraction and figuration of events and

    feelings would be the mystical lyric that defines my art.
