Robert Gutierrez

  • HOMETOWN: Portland, OR
A+CE View: Robert Guiterrez' vibrantly colored and carefully detailed paintings carry the echoes of Filipino folklore into a futuristic world. His imaginary, rugged landscapes morph into a whirlwind of post-industrial machinery, teetering on the brink of abstraction. Technology battles with super-naturalism, and there's no telling which side will win.
