Encounters exhibition opening at The Sock Gallery
A SOLO exhibition by Jose Gonzalez Iglesias entitled Encounters arrives at The Sock Gallery this week.
There is a story of a lifetime in many encounters. Curiosity to explore and memories captured when we’re unexpectedly faced with something challenging, or experience something different.
Jose Gonzalez Iglesias explores this relationship, building into much of his work the expression of a bond that connects memories with present experiences.From humble foster care beginnings in Venezuela, Jose moved to Spain where in 1969, aged nine, he joined ‘Los Muchachos Circus’ touring the world for seven years as a circus performer.
In 2001 he moved to England to coach gymnastics in Yorkshire, got married and began to paint.
It will run from June 14 to July 28 at the gallery in Loughborough Town Hall.
