Luis Cruz Azaceta, The Virus VII, 1989.

Luis Cruz Azaceta, The Virus VII, 1989. Acrylic on canvas, 122 x 84 inches.

As we are out of the gallery and unable to enjoy our current exhibition, another work by Luis Cruz Azaceta comes to mind.
While it was painted in response to a different pandemic, the stark representation of a virus (in this case referencing HIV) is an all too accurate visualization of our fears and anxieties.
Be safe and stay connected.

Our current exhibition of Luis Cruz Azaceta's paintings and drawings, Personal Velocity: 40 Years of Painting can be viewed here; works from Azaceta's 'AIDS' series were included in the 2018 exhibition, Luis Cruz Azaceta: 1984-1989.
