Virginia Jaramillo

Contemporary Art

Virginia Jaramillo uses color and line to consider how we see. She mixed paints for hours to achieve complex tonalities that change depending on the light and the viewer’s position.

Untitled was one of two paintings that Jaramillo included in The DeLuxe Show in 1971. A Mexican American artist, Jaramillo worked in a community with Black artists on the West and East Coasts, and was married to the late Daniel LaRue Johnson.
