Very last week, we shared an personal discussion and studio stop by with San Francisco-based painter Emilio Villalba, on the eve of his new solo display, Besides, at Hashimoto Contemporary in SF. Now we have a whole preview of the exhibition, which opens Oct 1st in the Bay Place. 

Returning to the gallery for his second solo presentation, Villalba’s most recent get the job done more abstracts the subject in textured, energetic marks. The rich surfaces of the paintings are imbued with a perception of spontaneity and movement. Focussing on the character of the people today and everyday scenes around him somewhat than a representational graphic, the thickly used paint evokes a sense of succinct intimacy.

The operates on canvas range from personal portraits to collage-like stream of consciousness nonetheless life. Functioning as diary entries, the collage compositions overlap particular moments and domestic vignettes to generate non-linear narratives of the artist’s life. Making use of singular image references for multiple compositions, Villalba examines the spectrum of moods and attributes of each individual topic. The performs on paper and canvas sheets carry on these compositional explorations with plein air scenes, additional reinforcing Villalba’s self-assured and candid follow.
