opening today [7pm-9pm] at diablorosso's gallery space is apología de la imagen, a new solo exhibition of fabrizio arrieta. the costa rican artist is a master in the deconstruction of images and playfully recreating an intriguing new image that challenge the viewer's apprehension to the max. on display is a new series of paintings that depict this signature cut and paste reinterpretation of elements from  today’s abundant visual culture. arrieta's new canvases aim to establish a different dialogue with the viewer, one that is detached from reality and thus allowing a more intense interaction [on through jan 12]. location: calle sexta + avenida a [casco viejo].
