poster for Julio Pantoja “Manos”

This event has ended.

Pantoja Manos will be the third exhibit. Pantoja, a New York based Colombian artist, is a resident of Brooklyn where he has lived and worked for many years.

“MANOS (Hands) symbol of Love and Hope. My interest in portraying the hand comes as a necessity to my interpretation of the times we are living in and to which we are witnesses: the threats to the environment and to animal and human life by the emissions of dangerous gases, pollution, and the contamination of the oceans by unscrupulous corporations and careless governments.

“Contemplating these looming challenges, I look to the hand as a gift from nature that lets people work, provide, and make a difference.

“I have used this thick, raw paint to explore the chaos, turmoil, and desperation surrounding humans and nature and the risk of an imminent disappearance.”

“A hand is Gift. If there’s a Hand theirs is hope. A working Hand is a Feeding hand.”
