Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo
Juan Barboza-Gubo uses the human figure as a totemic element of emotion. Ambiguous religious imagery, baroque architecture and landscapes, characters in a violent, active, and unstable universe—all represent the sub-conscious. Often, animalistic imagery exemplifies the duality of a pure soul on one hand, and human affliction on the other. His work is a visceral expression of the cathartic and often painful experience of living as a journey from an initial state of “not being” to a final equilibrium state of truly “being.” IntusExternus includes works from the series Pink Narcissus and Cruor-Proelium-Cervus.
Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo received his Bachelor’s degree at Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru. He has received two MFA degrees, in Painting and in Sculpture, from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He currently teaches at Rhode Island College.
