ARTIST RECEPTION “Rodrigo Aguilera: Abstrealism” at Silver Street Studios – West Gallery

EXHIBIT ON VIEW JULY 1–27, 2024: Sawyer Yards presents “Rodrigo Aguilera: Abstrealism” at Silver Street Studios – West Gallery. At first sight, Aguilera’s paintings read as colorful abstract designs, featuring pixelations or slices of pictorial moments set against color. The works on view demonstrate his technical mastery and delicate brushstrokes. Some include layering with collage or materials such as thread. Upon stepping back, a realistic image emerges that brings together all the parts and fragments, usually in the form of a portrait. Aguilera defines this result as “Abstrealism.” It conveys a sense that the parts form a whole. Subjects range from newly processed interpretations of classic portraits by old masters, to pop culture references including comic book characters.

“My hope is that this approach brings you joy, moves you and elevates your thinking as light overcomes darkness.” – Rodrigo Aguilera
