Caldwell Snyder Gallery is pleased to present the opening of Fragments by Alejandro Rivera.

To view a painting by Mexican artist Alejandro Rivera is to enter into an alternate universe. Rivera's paintings transport viewers to a place where time has collapsed, allowing artifacts of disparate civilizations to engage in a continuous and complex dialogue. His works have a labyrinthine, densely narrative quality that both invites and rewards extended contemplation. Rivera’s ability to manipulate symbols has allowed for compositions that speak incisively about the timeless, collective nature of human experience.
