The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Froelick Gallery is pleased to present V. Maldonado’s recent body of work titled ojo de aguila (eagle's eye).

Their unique aerial perspective and commitment to creative healing are at the core of V. Maldonado’s studio practice. The artist has journeyed through deep reflections and past experiences, often looking back in order to run toward the future. What are now colossal paintings were once the artists' life lessons and the forces that shaped who they are. Those experiences are now visual poems painted with vibrant acrylic webs of line. The exhibition ojo de aguila, is a wonderful demonstration of V. Maldonado's amorphous figures, interiors, and maps.

V. Maldonado is a multidisciplinary artist, freelance curator, and writer who lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Maldonado was born in 1976 in Changuitrio, Michoacan, Mexico and grew up in the Central San Joaquin Valley of California after their family migrated to the U.S. when Maldonado was only one month old. They come from a family of migrant field laborers. V Maldonado's work is included in the permanent collections of the Portland Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Museum of Fine Art, Houston, TX and The Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Salem, OR.
