Eduardo Eloy creates acrylic paintings that balance simplicity and detail. The artist admits that amusement is a vital component of his work, which translates the dynamic flow of a process, where materials, figures, and objects, articulated with an eye towards bright and textured linear expression, teem on each canvas. The focus in each work shifts between these ambiguous objects, depth appearing in the variation between hues and the rough application to each canvas. His acrylic works become like stained glass, planes of saturated pigment separated by distinct black lines, but shifting and mottled. Eloy’s work has a gestural quality that internalizes the everyday world around him to convey questions of time and space in a graphic manner. Materials and layers of meaning combine to create images that are both tumultuous and legible. Geometric shapes and the occasional figure mingle and inform one another to create paintings that incorporate abstract elements in indistinct scenes and suggested actions.
Working from Brazil, Eloy experiments with different mediums including plastic, engraving, paint, digital media, and handmade paper to express the world around him.
