Kirk Hopper Fine Art presents Eduardo Portillo: "America Invertida" opening reception
Kirk Hopper Fine Art will present their third solo exhibit featuring artist, Eduardo Portillo. Portillo’s latest work continues to challenge the two dimensionality of painting with his sculpture-like paintings. His work often comprises subdued colors and soft tonal shifts, which are contradicted by his aberrant, shaped canvases. The subtlety in his work also alludes to a conceptual deception and distortion of things, similar to how a Mercator projection map deceptively distorts the actual land masses of continents.
In regard to the exhibit “America Invertida,” the work has the ultimate intent to define itself by crossing an imaginary division that separate painting and sculpture in order to “subvert our traditional definitions” of both. Such subversions present themselves in distinct manners.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 31.
