Oscar Murillo’s calligraphic mixed-media paintings and sculptural objects illustrate his fascination with failure, incompleteness, and the studio experience. Using work taken from the peripheries of his studio, typically left on the floor to gather dust, dirt, and fluid stains, he restructures these objects into new creations: paintings initially discarded as failures are appropriated and reconfigured as an opportunity to explore archaeology, ruin, and failure itself. Though conceptually different, Murillo’s calligraphic aesthetic evokes the signature style of Cy Twombly.
