Welcome to my site. My name is Gary Joe Uribe and I am an artist from the lone star state. You'll see in the gallery tab a highlight of work representing some significant achievement in my practice.
I have to work through the serial iterations to achieve my goal of understanding and conveying a multi-faceted perspective for my subject matter. A few of my explorations include identity, conformity, individuality, masculinity, human nurture and Mother Nature. My work allows me to express my observations on gender, familial models, and personal experiences.
My studio practice is a mercurial process, akin to a squirrel crossing a road. However, the process consists of systematic and predictable steps to keep me focused. I love rendering a convincing trope l'oeil drawing as well as a thoughtfully constructed conceptual piece. I look to mundane, ordinary, everyday beauty of Texas nature, as well as the symbols and detritus of this consumer's choices to name a couple of my subjects. Once in my sights, my unassuming subject matter is transformed. I think it is due to my reluctance to assign a hierarchal value and simply to explore its inherent form in line and value.
Everything is for sale.
Thank y'all for visiting.
