Past: Oscar Murillo at Carlos/Ishikawa

"There's never been anything particularly subtle about Murillo's work... hulking metaphors writ in barn door sizes. A grandiosity that shadows whatever the work is "about," allowing a fleetingness, an evasiveness. ... What does a painting that says "Leche" mean? "Yoga." The words function like fish hooks... The arrows are huge, blinking, blinding, cover for what-you-want-it-to-be-about aboutness."
