Jaime Alvarez was born in Puerto Rico in 1979 and currently lives and works in Philadelphia. His work ranges from photography to sculpture and installation and revolve around themes of emotions crossed with objects and the every day. Jaime has exhibited throughout the United States in cities like Chicago, Austin, and New York, as well as Toronto and San Juan Puerto Rico. In May 2016 he will be working as an Artist in residence at RAIR Philly, a non profit artist in residency program that “builds awareness about sustainability issues through art and design.
MtoN is an abstract photographic series about space, color, and where perception confronts a reality. Photography on its own rides the line between reality and what the “other” of reality is. Defining what the reality is in the photograph may be the difference between the line in M and N, and how much the meaning changes. Similarly I find this line through Modern Artist like Lucio Fontana, Ellsworth Kelly, and Josef Albers who used simple abstraction compositions and interactions of colors.
