"The Black Life" - Mauricio Saenz

Brownsville, TX – The Art Gallery in the Rusteberg Building is proud to present emerging artist Mauricio Saenz, alumni from the University of Texas at Brownsville with his latest collection titled “The Black Life”. Mauricio quotes “I intend to display a recently produced series of painting- installations set in triptychs and shaped as coffins called ‘The Black Life’, evolving around different concepts on death and how it is perceived in many ways. I will also be showing some series of digital prints that are consistent with the theme of death as well as video art and an additional installation that will complement the works of ‘The Black Life’ series”.
