PETROPIAS: A Solo Exhibition by Tony Vazquez-Figueroa

November 19, 2021 – January 22, 2022

Venezuela is a land dependent on its oil fields. It is one of the largest exporters of oil and has the world’s largest proven oil reserves. Oil has determined its history, its economy, its social and political existence for hundreds of years, long before 20th century oil rigs began to mark the landscape. Tony Vazquez-Figueroa has explored the substance of crude oil and its many manifestations with the intention of using his artistic skills and vision to try and understand what happened to one of the richest countries that forced him and thousands of others to forsake their homeland and flee their homeland.
Using crude oil as a key material in the creation of works that include drawings, photography, oil-ink blots, three-dimensional objects and prints made from his specially created oil ink, he has produced a personal archive of the products that form his country’s and his own collective memory and patrimony… an inventory of his own contrived archive, both real and imagined, available and no longer existent and all dependent on oil and made of oil or its products.

About LnS Gallery

LnS GALLERY is a progressive space committed to presenting and promoting the international reach and impact of contemporary art. Embracing unique forms of artistic expression, diverse techniques and a broad spectrum of conceptual approaches, the gallery exhibits artists working with traditional and experimental media.

Our gallery creates a platform that champions the multiculturalism and plurality of Miami-based artists. By curating comprehensive, catalogued exhibitions of represented artists, we preserve and promote their legacies in the global art proscenium. We also organize thematic exhibitions with broader geographic parameters along with showcasing significant historical artworks.

LnS maintains an environment that balances open dialogue with criterion-based selection. Through constant adaptation to individual artistic expression in counterpoint with education and open exploration, we offer and sponsor a range of private exchanges and public events. Our space strives to improve awareness of the arts through outreach programs in our community, including partnerships with established institutions, foundations, private collectors, archives and organizations of higher learning.

With over fifteen years of experience in the field, we remain passionate about assisting art collectors in building their collections and acquiring selected artworks by emerging, mid-career, and internationally renowned master artists. As we welcome new friends and collectors, we provide art advising, market analysis, framing and conservation services.

We look forward to your visit to our space or to our site and welcome you to join our cultural adventure.
