LnS Gallery “Margins of Truth” William Osorio


LnS GALLERY presents Margins of Truth, a solo exhibition by Miami-based artist William Osorio. Margins of Truth frame Osorio’s artistic exploration of identity and its Odyssean reality. In these paintings, he deconstructs the flexibility of our existence and its impact on culture and day-to-day surroundings. His compositions are an examination of the infinite possibilities of all that is comprised within the human experience. This is Osorio’s second solo exhibition at LnS GALLERY following Inside Out in 2018. Margins of Truth will be on view at LnS GALLERY, March 20 through May 22, 2021.

“William is a powerful painter and a student of philosophy. His work elicits further examination of how we view basic behavior throughout time and space,” notes Luisa Lignarolo, co-owner of LnS GALLERY.

His work falls within a style of renewed Figurative Expressionism. Osorio’s style is characterized by a gestural looseness of unrestrained paint, taking inspiration from Contemporary giants such as Francis Bacon, Jenny Saville, Gerhard Richter, and Eric Fischl. As keenly noted by Ghanaian-American curator, and contemporary art advocate, Larry Ossei-Mensah in the accompanying catalog essay, Osorio has taken a combination of styles and deftly created “an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary replete with its own rhythm, form, and textural language.”


William Osorio is a Miami-based artist, born in Holguin, Cuba in 1989. Osorio began his artistic journey at a young age in grade school. He initiated his studies at the School of Fine Arts in his hometown of Holguin, later choosing to pursue his dreams by emigrating to the US. In the States, he embraced becoming a self-taught artist, leading to a key factor in the spontaneity of his work. While in the US, the Osorio participated in over 20 art exhibitions and group shows. He completed a residency in 2020 through Oolite Arts at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center (Snowmass Village, CO) and is currently an Artist-In-Residence at the Bakehouse Art Complex (Miami, FL).

In January 2021, Osorio’s The Cry (2017, oil on canvas, 60 x 72 inches) was acquired by the Pérez Art Museum Miami (Miami, FL) and in 2020, the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU (Miami, FL) acquired Cornerstone I (2017, oil and foam on wood, 72 x 96 inches), a large-scale mixed media work created by Osorio for the group exhibition titled Oolite at LnS Gallery (Miami, FL), taking place in 2017.

William Osorio was born in 1989. He attended the Fine Art Schools in his hometown of Holguin, Cuba, where he studied sculpture and painting. In 2007, he migrated to the US.

Osorio initially settled in Boston, where he began to explore a wide range of media using collage, acrylic, oils, and charcoal. Later Osorio moved to Miami, a city he now calls home.

Although Osorio does have some formal training, it is precisely his rejection of continued studies through the traditional academic path that has led to key elements in his work, the spontaneity, and expression that he aims to achieve within his artwork. He completed a residency through Oolite Arts at Anderson Ranch Arts Center (Snowmass Village, CO), and is currently an Artist-In-Residence at Bakehouse Art Complex (Miami, FL).
