Cayetano Navarrete: When a Mandarin Loves a Woman

EXHIBITION: October 14–November 15
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, October 15, 4-6pm


When a Mandarin Loves a Woman is an exhibition of works by painter Cayetano Navarrete. The works in the exhibition focus on the idea of visualizing the cosmos and the human body through the exploration of sacred geometry and the color orange. Square canvases covered in different shades of shimmering warm tones invite moments of meditation as works reveal their construction and shifting imagery. Cayetano’s paintings explore the relationship between the external world and the human vessel – the internal self and the unbounded mind.

Kingston based painter, Cayetano Navarrete, has been honing his skills in painting and drawing for the past eight years. A native of Guerrero, Mexico, his colorful paintings pay homage to his homeland by continuing to use traditional techniques to create pigments and paint from organic earth materials. Cayetano earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Cooper Union in 2014. His work has been shown both in Mexico and in the U.S., including the Arts Society of Kingston, the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, and the 41 Cooper Gallery.
