American Purgatory

Marc Trujillo's paintings depict places common to North American urban and suburban landscapes such as big chain and warehouse stores, gas stations, shopping malls, and chain restaurants. Trujillo paints locations that are "non-destinations," American kinds of nowhere, at once ubiquitous and yet largely unseen. "I'm captivated by the middle ground," Trujillo explains, "the purgatory of the world we've made and share as North Americans."
