LnS Gallery presents, “Only Silence Hears,” the latest solo exhibition by celebrated artist, William Osorio.
The rug paintings that comprise the exhibition are a renewal in Osorio’s work, bridging traditions of textile and painting to discuss and defend the importance of leisure as a pillar of society. Only Silence Hears acts as a mirror to show the teeming potential of silence, inviting viewers to take part in repose. Join us in inaugurating this compelling exhibition on Friday, May 5 from 6:00 – 9:00pm, which will remain on view through July 8, 2023
William Osorio (b. 1989, Holguin, Cuba) is a Cuban-American artist utilizing his practice to investigate human behavior as it converges with themes of identity and place. Osorio’s affinity for the power of the arts started in his youth. He studied briefly at the School of Fine Arts in Holguin before emigrating to the US, where he further developed his skills on a self-taught basis. Osorio’s fascinations lie in the correspondent realities between the past and present using artistic allegories – either historic, contemporary, or his own – within this exploration. The trajectory of Osorio’s life has inspired the depth, spontaneity, and curiosity present within his work.
Osorio received The Ellies 2022 Creator Award issued by Oolite Arts, and participated in renowned residency programs including Home + Away at Anderson Ranch Arts Center (Snowmass, CO) in collaboration with Oolite Arts. From 2020 – 2022, he was an Artist-in-Residence at Bakehouse Art Complex (Miami, FL). Recent acquisitions by permanent collections include the Pérez Art Museum Miami (Miami, FL), Espacio 23 (Miami, FL), and the Frost Art Museum (Miami, FL).
