Tainted - Eduardo Sarabia

June 3, 2013 by Kay

Tainted at MCA Denver

Until 9th June 2013

Eduardo Sarabia’s Tainted features a series of paintings of everyday images covered with daubs of coloured paint. The images, which appear to be family snapshots, often show people in the sunshine, near the water, looking as if they might be smiling for the camera. However, it is impossible to tell for certain because the faces are obscured with swirls of paint. Interestingly, the clouds of paint covering the images somehow manage to be obstructive without being discordant. The color palette of the splotches matches that of the photos it obscures. They are paintings on paintings–illustrating the duality of reality and illusion–as relevant to life as it is to art.
