Murillo, Oscar

catalyst #13

To make his large-scale unstretched canvasses, Oscar Murillo often works on the floor of his studio, where ‘dust and dirt’ become part of his arsenal of mark-making materials, alongside oil paint, graphite and pastel sticks. ‘I like to cut up the canvas in different sections, work on them individually, fold them and … leave them around for months’, he explains, during which time they accrue the residue of different projects.
