In All aboard the Echo Chamber, mess, the improvised and the pragmatic are the norm. Drawing from the ethos of ‘making do’ the gallery has been prepared for a party. Combining collage, painting a sound, as well as whatever else was on hand, Quintanilla has created a festive space. Here seemingly mournful fragments of past events combine and configure into a new celebratory reality.
