Nevada-born artist Frederick Chiriboga’s art is featured at Visual Art Studio in “Trojan Horse.”
Chiriboga, who grew up in Ecuador and Colombia, has compiled about 20 new paintings, sculptures, collages and constructions that, according to a press release by the gallery, are not always what they seem to be from the outside.
“His work reveals the detachment and observant eye of a visitor while conveying the traveler’s sense of alienation upon realizing he is not in his own world,” the gallery said in a statement about Chiriboga’s new work.
In an artist’s statement to the gallery, Chiriboga said that he uses found objects in his sculptures and found ideas in his paintings.
Visual Art Studio is located at 208 West Broad Street and can be reached at 804/644-1368. Gallery hours are Thursday-Friday, noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m.
