For Ricardo Paniagua, the canvas is sculpture and his sculpture is a canvas. He uses vivid colors to reconfigure recognizable shapes, suggesting interests in geometry and psychedelia, and to talk to Paniagua is to talk to someone inspired. His self-taught artistry and varied creative outputs are what he considers "assignments" from somewhere otherworldly, somewhere spiritual. If his art is transcendent, he can only take credit for the execution, not the idea. See the work of the self-described “ugly duckling” of Dallas when the Latino Cultural Center (2600 Live Oak St.) hosts Ricardo Paniagua-Retrospective: 2004- 2014. See it 10 a.m. -5p.m. Friday or through August 30. More information at dallasculture.org/latinoculturalcenter.
