Urban Landscape Paintings by Marc Trujillo

View all 9 Photos

The state of commercialism and stagnancy of location in America has become so common that it is almost a blind item to us—but Marc Trujillo peels back the crust of the droll and the unseen with his new painted series of landscapes, all of them “non-destinations” that could easily exist everywhere and nowhere. Within each painting is a complex, realistic beauty—but there is also a sense of overall disconnection, a stock and complacent dread of the norm. Faces are soft and boorish with disinterest, while storefront titles have been garbled into unintelligible drivel—the result of our eyes drifting over familiar yet oversaturated places for the millionth time.
