Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Fredy Gabuardy was born in Boaco, Nicaragua. He moved to the United States after 2000. Fredy earned his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2013. He studied painting with a concentration in Sculpture. Gabuardy uses found objects, industrial material, and personal artifacts. His work has been reviewed in The Coconut Grove Arts Festival, and The Lawrence and Kristina Dodge Painting Building Main Gallery.
Gabuardy writes: “My work focuses on the relationships of formal elements to explore objecthood, materiality and narrative. My work bounds between painting and sculpture, often combining both. Object plays many roles in my work. Object can function as character, experience, or space. Placing the material handling of my work in the realm of unfamiliar interaction, I’m able to cast each of my pieces out from what is typical and expected of story and form.”
