“These ghosts play an important role in the general vision of my work…” - Oscar Aguilar
THE ARTISTS: Oscar Aguilar Olea is an expressionist figurative painter, sculptor, and printmaker from Guanajuato, Mexico. His signature technique includes different types of egg tempera. In the mid 1970s, he was a member of a small group of artists who called themselves “SUMA” and gained much attention painting murals in Mexico City. His work has been exhibited at Vinoce Art Gallery, Napa, Ca.; Yo el rey Gallery, Calistoga, Ca.; Justin Robert Galleries, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Michelangelo Gallery, Santa Cruz, Ca.; and the Napa Valley Museum, among others.
THE ART: Among masterpieces of the past, the "Pentimento" was another unexpected element that appeared due to some chemical reactions due to the oils and varnishes. These ghosts play an important role in the general vision of my work and taking advent of this effect, instead of erasing it, I leave it as an important role following the best samples of the Florentine paintings.
THE PLACE: Main St. North.
