Modern Eden Gallery Press // Modern Eden proudly presents the newest solo exhibition from gallery artist Emilio Villalba. This marks the artist’s 6th solo exhibition and his first show at our brand new location.
The series, which began in mid-2019, is perhaps the artist’s most intimate. Back Home reveals Villalba returning to form. His newest large-scale oil paintings depict personal motifs and interiors from his San Francisco apartment and home studio. In this series, the artist has simplified his approach to the subject matter by working from a single reference photo or vantage point. The result is a series of paintings that convey his signature abstraction of form and quality of paint, yet reference a more personal and direct way of creating images.
