Farley Aguilar

A self-taught artist, Aguilar reworks snapshots of the American past into multi-colored paintings that mingle raw graphite lines with globs of oil paint. By collapsing periods of time, his canvases reveal how images mediate our relationship to history and the present. Aguilar’s work seeks to restore dignity to those who have been denied it, engaging issues of social justice as well as structural and institutional violence.
