Eduardo Carrillo: Within a Cultural Context

Explores the artist's place in contemporary art history with imagery inspired by his ancestral Mexican heritage.

Exhibited from August 22 2009-November 22 2009

Eduardo Carrillo: Within a Cultural Context describes the artist’s place in contemporary art history. His imagery is inspired by his ancestral Mexican heritage and imbued with the language of his time. With an emphasis on the figurative work his deeply personal and quietly contemplative smaller portraits contrast sharply with his resonantly colored and dramatically themed large scale oils on canvas and panels. Relationships are studied and mythic stories explored while complex spatial ideas are worked out across the two dimensional world of the painting.

Included in this exhibition will be the work of Phe Ruiz, recipient of the 2006 The Eduardo Carrillo Prize in Painting.
