Lawndale Art Center in Houston, Texas presents the work of UT alumni Carlos Rosales-Silva (BFA in Studio Art, 2017) and Eric Santoscoy-Mckillip (BFA in Studio Art, 2011) in Place, Color y Sand, opening April 6, 2019.
Place, Color y Sand is a selection of paintings and wall sculptures by Rosales-Silva and Santoscoy-Mckillip. Along with showing discreet objects, the artists will collaborate on a mural in Grace R. Cavnar Gallery. As artists, they trace and confront their personal histories and identities within the Latinx, Mexican-American, and Chicanx Cultures in their practices, naturally leading to points of intersection in their work. Elements of place, color and sand - found in each of their work - thread histories of place in the Southwest and on the border with the colors of daily sunsets, neon green paletas and plastic flowers.
Place, Color y Sand will be on view from April 6, 2019 – June 2, 2019.
