MJ Torrecampo and the Beauty of “Salt Water”

MJ Torrecampo and the Beauty of “Salt Water”
Steve Turner is pleased to present Salt Water, a solo exhibition by Orlando-based MJ Torrecampo that features new paintings inspired by their parents’ retirement and subsequent return to the Philippines after many years in the United States. Water represents the vast, physical divide between the two countries and is a device that the artist uses to connect and isolate figures with their complex compositions. The works also relate to Torrecampo’s ongoing exploration of the relationship between the individual within the group as they struggle to reconcile the need to form an individual identity inside the American framework amidst their strong roots within Filipino culture.

Bijijoo Finds “Home”
Home is a presentation of new works created by BIJIJOO over the past year, during a time of transition for the artist which included a move to a different city on the other side of the US. The work has an otherworldly bent and incorporates combinations of chaotic organic figuration surrounded by structure and pattern meticulously crafted around the figures.
