Meet Genesis Gonzalez of GGART8 or Light Project in Downtown Miami

Today we’d like to introduce you to Genesis Gonzalez.

Genesis, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My art explores photographic relationships between light and color while creating an abstract and interactive experience for my audience. The stimulus for this work originates in my roots, which stem from Latin American cities that are full of vigor, activity and colors. My photographic processes are conducted on the city streets at night while capturing moments and spaces, transforming the traditional cities and places where we live, as well as, providing a new perspective to familiar environments.

My purpose as an artist is to create photography using light that connects with the audience through shapes and colors. My photography artwork establishes relationships with color theory, which are represented in the vibrant colors. The colors in the photography work create energy and life, which is essential in order to achieve the final visual outcome.

The graduation between light and dark is where my story begins – generating a supernatural world that transcends reality. The photographic process allows me to capture the unseen world as an abstract environment of shape and color allowing my mind to be free from time and space.

The images invite the viewer to develop their own experience, shrouding reality to embrace this unidentified world. The presentation or installation of this work is essential, allowing me to bring the concept and process closer together. Using new and alternative approaches allows me to create a new experience to the traditional photograph. I often place the work into groups in order to create a narrative that suggests life and energy.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I think it has been an amazing surprise, I first start this journey as a way to escape my reality as an immigrant. I would have never imagined that this escape was going to become in such a deep passion.

Please tell us about GGART8 or Light Project.
I do abstract photography and video installation.

I’m proud that I found a way to connect with others through color and light, its amazing every time I create a new piece, it feels like a discover a beauty in our space and then I share it with everyone around.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing, I just think about what I can do different now for a better future.
