Oil Painting 'Nudes' by Mexican Painter Jorge González Velázquez. One of a series of three paintings.
Jorge González Velázquez was born in Mexico City in 1966. He completed his professional studies in the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes’ “La Esmeralda” National School of Painting, Sculpture and Engraving, specializing in Sculpture. He has participated in some twenty collective exhibitions in Mexico and Europe.
His solo exhibits, which began when he was 19 years old, have included Tentativo (Probe), in Plaza Loreto, (1996); Figuras diversas (Diverse Figures), in the Jaulas de Polanco (1997); Como si fuera la primera vez (As If for the First Time), itinerant exhibition (2002-03) and Lluvias, soles y lunas (Rains, Suns and Moons), in the Galería José María Velasco at the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes (2006), all in Mexico City. In 2005 he was invited to produce the large-format sculpture Desnudo blanco for the Sixth International Women’s Day Conference in Graz, Austria. The piece —carved directly in stone— was donated to the people of Austria and stands on the Schlossberg Square in Graz.
In his sculptural work he tirelessly experiments with all kinds of materials and techniques, although bronze and polyurethane foam have played a transcendental role throughout his career. González Velázquez does his own casting, a skill he has developed together with the sculpture. From 1990 to 2000 he counseled Juan Soriano (1920-2006) on aggrandizing and casting, and took part in the lifting and erection of La Luna (The Moon) —bronze monument on the Mexico City National Auditorium esplanade— and the four-meter-tall Paloma (Dove) for a private collection in Pietrasanta, Italy. He has assisted in the casting of bronze sculptures by José Luis Cuevas and Gunther Gerzso. He is currently working on monumental sculpture projects.
