The Braid of Day and Night by Cayetano Valenzuela

When I visited Syracuse over Easter weekend, I stopped by Craft Chemistry to see Cayetano Valenzuela's exhibit "The Braid of Day and Night" at Craft Chemistry. Here is the artist's statement:

"Much of the work I am making now is deeply based in the process of memory. It is also a documentation of the subcultures of which I am a part. The figures in my paintings range from skaters and punk rockers to anarchists and fellow artists. I use color and texture to depict memories caught midstream. I try to explore experiences that have poetic resonance and let the imagery of one memory blur into another."

The even lasts from April 15 to May 29. More information here.
