When working on his art, Francisco Gabuardy  draws from a lexicon of personal symbols. Many symbols allude to family ties, but also to larger concepts such as freedom and survival. He considers himself a mixed media artist who can create something out of anything he can get my hands on. However, he likes to re-explore the plethora of information and techniques that he’s confident with. This is why his work carries a playful knowledge of color, material, composition and attention to detail, which is infused with symbolism and narrative. Come view some of his work currently on display at Gardner Library.
