Mexican-American visual artist Rigoberto Gonzalez shows us the monumental canvases he created for his exhibition Baroque on the Border at Art League Houston.  The paintings depict the sometimes violent aspects of contemporary life along the Mexico-U.S. border, using stylistic elements, intense colors and symbols that borrow from Seventeenth Century masters like Caravaggio.

Rigoberto Gonzales talks with Troy Schulze.
