Gonzales is an American painter, born in New Orleans, and influenced by the French Quarter. He grew up in the period following the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The ensuing (and neverending) investigations and conspiracy theories, often based on blurred and distorted images, were the beginning of Gonzales’ manipulation of imagery. He often uses photos he takes or finds on the internet as a starting point.
And his work, like any good conspiracy theory, is something the viewer can stretch and interpret freely.
