En­coun­ters ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing at The Sock Gallery

Loughborough Echo - - LEISURE -

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.
