Solo, I'm a soloist on a solo list
All live, never on a floppy disk
Inka, inka, bottle of ink
Paintings of rebellion
Drawn up by the thoughts I think

Known for his wheatpastes and murals that dot the California landscape, Eddie Collaexplores the primitive instincts present in all people in his upcoming solo exhibition “Atavisms” at Ian Ross Gallery in San Francisco.

“Atavisms,” a biology term for ancestral traits that re-appear after several generations, is an appropriate title for the exhibition, which features harrowing portraits painted with a suppressed aesthetic reminiscent of old anonymous photographs one finds in antique shops. The faces, though distinct and personal, are also strangely familiar. Colla’s portraits are successful for the emotional impact present in his character’s eyes. The figures in “Atavisms” are no different, and the viewer is compelled to identify with feelings of hope and pride, ferocity and purpose. Read more on Hi-Fructose.
