A reception was recently held for guest artist Carlos Vega at the Lux Art Institute.

A New York City-dwelling, Spanish-born sculptor, Vega alters large-scale, malleable metal plates through engraving and deep cuts. Vibrant fields of oil paint, stamps and collaged material reveal themselves beneath the geometric patterns and designs that undulate across the surfaces of his carved lead panels, hinting at the traditional latticed screens found in his native Melilla, Spain.

Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Jack Shainman Gallery in New York City and the Instituto de América (Centro Damián Bayón), Spain; and group efforts including Chelsea Visits Havana at the ninth Havana Biennial, Cuba; De Granada a Gasteiz Un Viaje de Ida y Vuelta, the Fundacion Artium, Alava, Spain; and Black Panther Rank and File, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, traveling to Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem, NC.

Vega will be in studio Jan. 10-Feb. 2; His work will be on exhibit Jan. 10-March 2. Visit www.luxartinstitute.org/ Photos/Jon Clark
