Marc Trujillo: North American Purgatory

Image coming soon.

John Seed blogs about the paintings of Marc Trujillo, on view at Hirschl and Adler Modern, New York through December 3, 2011.

Seed writes: "Trujillo sees what he calls 'visual potential' in mundane subject matter: big box stores and fast food meals. Painting with a moral seriousness reminiscent of Chardin or Vermeer, Trujillo finds poetry in the gap between ubiquity and invisibility. He evokes both shame and awe in what he records, and uses formal intelligence to make the two conflicting emotions balance."
