Anya Tish Gallery says
On View: November 18 - December 24, 2016

Anya Tish Gallery is thrilled to announce Planos Moldeados, a solo exhibition featuring new work by El Salvador-born, Houston-based artist Eduardo Portillo. This is Portillo’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Expanding upon the ideas that sparked the experimental and iconic shaped canvases of the 1960s, Eduardo Portillo constructs irregularly shaped wooden armatures that are wall dependent, yet protrude into the space in ways traditional, rectangular paintings do not. These works exceed the boundaries of diamonds, trapezoids and triangles, with mountainous topographies that undulate between elevated points of pressure and fluid expanses of space.

Eduardo Portillo relocated to Houston from El Salvador in 2003 to pursue an education in art, and received a BFA in Painting from the University of Houston in 2011. He has been awarded recent artist residencies with Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de Chiapas as well as the Vermont Studio Center, and his work has been widely exhibited across Texas in such venues as Blue Star Contemporary, San Antonio; Lawndale Art Center, Houston; Site 131, Dallas; and Galveston Art Center, Galveston, with forthcoming exhibitions in Marfa, TX and Torino, Italy. In 2013, his exhibition with the HCC Central Art Gallery was included in the Texas Biennial.
