Though his paintings have evolved from early depictions of agonized and abject humans to more recent scenes of desolate deserts and architectural and urban ruins, Jorge Tacla has always sought to expose the turbulence of history and how it has shaped contemporary society, physically and psychologically. Tacla’s paintings oscillate between abstraction and representation. In series like “Rubble Series I” (2011), he fills canvases with rubble-reduced cities and crumbling buildings that resemble torn flesh and ragged clothing—a searing vision of the accumulated wounds of war, emerging from the initial appearance of allover abstraction.
