Cleansing

Cleansing

Cleansing brings together nine large-scale oil paintings of eroticism and trauma. In an unsettling, timely juxtaposition, Aguilar depicts scenes of seaside beauty pageants from the 1920s and ‘30s alongside images of World War II resistance members shaving the heads of alleged collaborators. Sourced from historic photographs and rendered with his singular aesthetic, these nightmarish scenes strike home in a world where the body is the battleground.
