If you’d have asked me what painting on circuit panels contributes to an art piece before seeing Leo Eguiarte's work, I'd have been mostly clueless. There's a simple point about juxtaposing analog art on digital hardware, but physically…no idea. Eguiarte's work takes advantage of this uncommon media and completely obliterates any expected cliches.
At its most superficial level, Eguiarte’s painting has a remarkably uncanny texture. Circuit panels are porous, matte surfaces that evoke cardboard moreso than shiny silicon, lending an odd feeling of low-fi materiality. Thematically, Eguiarte’s work touches on older iconographies and symbolisms which, paired with its odd texture, further concentrate its charge, so to speak. It carefully layers forms atop already an already complex substance to essentially distill each piece. It’s art that provides a rare depth and complexity, yet without pretension or restriction.
Its subjects and symbolism exceed the traditional and esoteric, though. Especially in his newer series, Eguiarte explores a disjunctive language of socio-political suggestiveness and disruptive transcendentalism. Skulls with mechanical mandalas, robotic monarchs, normative human forms with thready spectral beings—all of this comingling and challenging itself, suggesting an uncertain other reality that sources some of its contents from our world but mutates them into otherworldly alien life.
