Reynoso Art: All of Human Existence

Reynoso Image #1 (Small)

Rondall Reynoso, Sheol, ‘Erets, Shamayim, Pastel & Acrylic on canvas, 30” x 156”, 2000

This early work is one of the largest paintings I have made. Sheol, ‘Erets, Shamayim are the Hebrew words for hell, earth, and heaven. The panoramic layout is 13 feet wide and is meant to reference the entirety of human existence.

This piece is part of my Societal Portrait series. People have a natural desire to associate with others. For many people this association stems from a common ethnicity. For others it may be common religious conviction, political affiliation, socio-economic condition, leisure activity or a variety of other factors. These associations create patterns in society, which are timeless in their nature. Yet, their configurations are constantly in flux. Social groupings are metaphorically depicted in my artwork through tight-fitting biomorphic forms.
