New art graces the walls of Round Rock City Council Chambers Gallery!
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
The natural world with a hummingbird motif, is presented in a variety of expressive ways through the imaginative art of Ruben Miranda. Round Rock Arts and Culture is pleased to present a solo exhibit of the artist’s work in the Round Rock City Council Chambers Gallery.
This series of art pieces are based on and idealized image of my love for Mother Nature and Hummingbirds. My style comprise of faces in planes and looping curves with natural colors, mechanical forms, nature forms, symbols from my cultural background, flora and fauna forms. The bold outline is immediately recognizable, yet subtle when blended into the forms, parts of the human body are also recognizable and only as disproportionate as real life. Not exactly a traditional style but manifesting a streamlined surreal modernism executed in a very spontaneous way.
