Eduardo Mata Icaza is sparing in his use of detail. In his paintings, classically rendered nudes float in empty space, as if swimming, flying and throttling through color-saturated abstraction. These anonymous characters become vessels for his viewers’ imaginations as they are invited to fill in these figures’ histories with their own narratives. Delicate bodies explode with color or are hollowed out until only line work remains like a skeleton in these expressive works.
