Out in LA, Victor Reyes ambitious new body of work, The Jungle, is on view at Known Gallery through April 7, 2012. The result of a two years of exploration of human nature and survival, the paintings began as black and white murals before being finally realized as full color pieces on wood panel. Within each painting, Reyes creates a tight tapestry of representational motifs that present themes of survival and dominance. It is powerful, stark stuff.
