Exhibition runs: January 18th – February 16th, 2020
Haven Gallery is honored to present, “Things Doing Things”, a mini solo exhibition of eight new paintings by Spanish artist Jesús Aguado. Aguado’s paintings are steeped in symbolism and pay homage to historical artworks and traditions. Painted in a classic style, his paintings represent dream worlds, each with a unique narrative and voice. His surreal compositions are a feast for the eyes full of bold colors and a myriad of animals, plants and creatures, blending one world with many others.
