Presa House Gallery will present "Recuerdos Vividos," the first solo exhibition of Houston-based multidisciplinary artist Guadalupe Hernandez. The opening reception will feature music by DJ Despeinada & DJ Sucia Q.

Hernandez was born in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, before relocating to Pleasanton, Texas, a small city south of San Antonio, in 1996. Despite moving to the United States, Hernandez maintained a deep connection to his Mexican heritage and customs through time-honored familial traditions. Hernandez's practice examines his cultural identity by reinterpreting childhood memories and family stories connecting his past and offering greater meaning to his present. Through the use of photographic references accumulated over several years, retracing the markets, street scenes, and people of his homeland Hernandez creates elaborate papel picado portraits and figurative oil paintings with gestural brushwork.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 30.
