Briena Segundo “Coffee Girl” (2015)


The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery at El Centro College will feature “Rough Around the Edges” as our summer group exhibition.

Curated by Raymond Butler, the show focuses on a group of artists whose work demonstrates expressive use of line and color to distort pop culture icons, create surreal characters, and explore sentimental memories from childhood.

Frank Fazio makes work that is centered around nostalgia, and his love of the child-like imagination. He focuses formally on heavy line work and vibrant colors. By conveying ideas that contrast with the everyday, he favors drawing odd creatures and familiar characters in a manner that mirrors his own thoughts.

Jaime Flores uses pixelated art to create simplified images and transfer them from digital to analog format by painting them manually. He hopes that this will present the viewer with a different perspective on images they may typically encounter online, by seeing them in a fresh context.


Pete Hernandez “Untitled” (2015)

Pete Hernandez’s artwork combines iconic images from the ancient world with nature, presenting them in the form of two-dimensional totem paintings that exploit symmetrical balance.

Robert Israel is a graphic artist and illustrator from the DFW area. His obsessions of art, music, comics, politics, movies, and life’s oddities come through in his meticulous paintings.

Briena Segundo says of her work, “I really like drawing cute stuff, and I’m also into horror and gore. I struggle to want and be both so I decided to splice them together”.

“Rough Around the Edges” will open for viewing on Monday June 8th and continue through July 2nd. A reception for the artists will take place on Friday evening June 12th from 6-8 pm.
