Eduardo Ojeda

Deep Acrylic on Canvas 55” x 39”

Viewers are inevitably struck by the tranquility and stillness in observation within Eduardo Ojeda’s large-scale, abstract paintings. Working in both acrylic and ink on canvas and paper, Ojeda’s compositions are characterized by nearly monochromatic washes of color and anonymity in texture that reflect the mind’s reaction to our world. His practice involves a systematic process of applying paint in several layers that creates a soft, cohesive blend of color. Works such as Deep (2016) and Red (2016) simultaneously confront the viewer by pushing boundless layers of color into the forefront of our field of vision. Ojeda explains: “As the strokes blend with each other on the surface of the canvas, so do the underlying meaning within it.” The artist currently resides in Mexico.
