By allowing visions of magic realism to influence his visceral experiences, the Sink series delves into intimate spaces in order to address emotional upheaval and personal loss. Villarreal uses organic subjects that symbolize the death and rebirth that happens throughout our lives revealing the beauty that is lost during the transition, showing you not only colors of life, but just as importantly of death. A sink is a personal place of cleansing, where we perform a routine ritual daily. Villarreal uses this sacred place as an altar to show guilt, regret, and sorrow washed away. The tension between the cultures of rationalism and magic realism collide in his work. Not only questioning the physical walls that divide specific boundaries, but the societal expressions of emotions and beliefs.
