Litopintura: Paintings on Stone by Walter Barco
March 22 – May 3, 2015
Ecuadoran artist Walter Barco creates extraordinary “rock-works” that evoke nostalgic memories of his native Guayaquil’s colonial architecture and 19th century homes, using a technique he describes as “la litopintura,” or stone-painting. With incredibly fine detail, he even paints tiny figures in the windows of these three-dimensional paintings, 12 of which were on view at the Museum from Mar. 22 – May 3, 2015.
