Campos shows colorful women

GLASGOW — The use of bright colors was the one thing many found attractive about Costa Rican artist Fabrizio Campos’ artwork Thursday night.

A reception showcasing Campos’ latest collection titled “Faces” was at Stellar House in downtown Glasgow.

June Jackson, of Glasgow, attended and said, “I love it,” admiring his artwork. “I love the colors.”

In the collection, Campos painted the faces of women from around the world using a technique to make the paintings look like stained glass windows. Campos describes his style of painting as being abstract, but also surrealistic.

As Mary Maxey, of Glasgow, looked at one of Campos’ paintings titled “New York,” she said, “She looks mysterious,” referring to the face in the painting.

Nancy Kirkpatrick, of Bowling Green, said of the same painting, “It looks like she’s concealing something.”

Campos was invited to showcase his work locally by Glasgow physician Kenny Manion, who owns Glasgow Urgent Clinic.

Manion discovered Campos while on vacation in Costa Rica.

“I’m really excited about the turnout and pleased we could bring this to Glasgow,” he said.

Pat and Stacy Elmore, of Elizabethtown, also turned out for the reception.
