Drawings and paintings by Ivan Trujillo paired with mixed media works by Greg Crawford explore human migrations. Trujillo's works portray migration, movement, façades, interpretation of human behavior and journeys. Crawford's works examine the quest for Shangri-La.
I work with the jetsam and flotsam of consumer culture — discarded pieces that are remnants of a personal and collective history. I find inspiration in the alchemy of regenerating the crude colors, shapes and textures of cast-off materials into new contexts and implications.
The Gold Mountain series explores migration to California as a means to create a better life. The Wanderlust series employs ephemeral fragments to examine the human pursuit of happiness.
I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kansas State University. My work has been shown in California and the Midwest. I currently live and work in Oakland, California.
