A wall is a vertical surface that closes or delimits a space. However, in any gallery it becomes an essential place where the artists’ creations rest. After a year in which we have presented numerous projects by different artists on the gallery’s largest wall, we have considered the importance of also having a “virtual exhibition wall” on our website. From now on, we will present each week a new work in this space and in a digital way so that it reaches everyone.
In this first week we present one of the works that best reflects the current works of our artist Antonio Murado:
It is one of the large format works that we have presented in his last exhibition Intramuros:
Untitled, 2019, oil on linen, 164 x 118 cm.
The artist describes the creative process of these works in a very concise way: “they were painted in plein air and left for weeks at the elements. They are inspired by animal skins and presented as tapestries. Le Corbusier called tapestries” murals nomads. It is this condition of mobility, adaptation and creation of a space or a domestic shelter that inspires them.”
It is a work that has also been presented at our Booth during the last edition of ARCO Madrid.
