After shifting his art practice into a warehouse studio in 2019, the natural landscape continued to be a source of inspiration for Rubén Aguirre (b. 1979). By building on the visual language of his urban murals, his current studio work has generated a new dialect where reduced shapes and colors speak of terrestrial forms. Rendered as abstract topographies, his wood panel paintings invoke poetic contemplations on origin, self-awareness, one’s connection to the Earth, and our impermanence. These abstracted meditations on exhibit collectively reflect on the unforgiving tectonic forces of nature while remaining ambiguous and peripheral.
