Building Castles Made of Sand, Pedro Matos’ new solo show at Martha Otero Gallery in L.A. opened on May 17, and for those who couldn’t make the opening, here’s a look at the range of new work by the Portuguese-born artist on display now at the gallery. The exhibition makes for riveting viewing with many of the works inspired by traditional Portuguese techniques, while additional canvases employ a more contemporary aesthetic. Building Castles Made of Sand runs until June 15, 2013, so you still have time to check it out if you’re in the area.
