Artwork

Artist Jose H. Alvarenga displays a symbolic still life of a mobile phone, a rose, and a stuffed bear holding a laced heart reading "I Love You". He depicts modern love and how technology has changed our ways to communicate and express affection. "On the iPhone, I wanted to write a meaningful exchange between two people who love each other dearly," says Jose. The rose and white teddy bear remind the viewer of the traditional aspect of showing love.

Jose H. Alvarenga

Inglewood, California

Jose’s soft still life paintings are like visual puns. He creates relationships between objects that evoke both amusement and contemplation in the viewer. By devising a clever dialogue between objects, Jose turns a still life into a story. Jose utilizes a classical realist style with a gentle nod to surrealism through his unique subject selections. He is inspired by everyday objects, particularly those with a quality of nostalgia, memory, or humor. Jose paints out of his Los Angeles area apartment, where he also enjoys playing the keyboard and reading art books.

I fell in love with this piece the first time I saw it and have been following Jose’s work at ugallery for a long while. In this time when so many artists are struggling, we decided to finally purchase this now. It brings me pleasure every day.

No, that´s not me..it´s an interesting coincidence, but I don´t know how to do sculptures only paintings. I was only 9 years old in 1983 :-)

Do you by any chance do sculptures too? We have a Scales of Justice sculpture done in 1983 and it says H.Alvarenga on it
