Local art scenesters are perhaps more likely to recognize Ed Saavedra as the “senior creative co-conspirator” at Fl!ght Gallery than for his own artwork—which spans from drawings and assemblages to “occasional performance outbursts.” In a review of his exhibition “Things Have Gone to Pieces,” Art Lies noted Saavedra’s “mastery for creating levels of meaning beyond immediately appealing craftsmanship.” The Houston native’s first local solo show since “Requiem for an English Major” (which referenced both Thomas Gainsborough’s painting The Blue Boy and Harlan McVea’s suicide in Bexar County Jail), “Paintings for a Razed Hotel” comprises works created over the past few weeks. According to Saavedra, the project isn’t about a specific property but “the proverbial razed hotel.”
