Alvaro Alcázar Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition Visto y no visto on Saturday, February 5. A play on words that seeks to show adaptation to immediate changes. Rethink what we have and improvise. Thus, the exhibition brings together more than twenty works by gallery artists, and invites the spectator to view and review these works, some of them previously exhibited and others shown for the first time here.
The tour begins with the works of Juan Garaizabal and Simon Edmondson, where light is presented as the main element, although treated in two radically different ways. They light our way until we come across some essential paintings and sculptures in Eduardo Arroyo’s work, where he boasts of this characteristic irony.
In this game of mixing and enhancing, the pairing Carlos III by Kepa Garraza with Stanford II by Alejandro Guijarro stands out. The first of an almost realistic figuration that contrasts with the abstraction evident in Guijarro’s erased blackboard.
Following the trail of the black that precedes, the skulls of Guillem Nadal are arranged, works that stand out for the materiality of their technique, very different from that of Rafael Canogar, who provides the note of color with the red line within so much white and black.
Soft and rounded forms constitute the link between the painting of Maru Quiñonero, with the black tondo of Bosco Sodi and, from a sculptural perspective, the work of Nigel Hall, which is presented as an ovals landscape.
On another wall, an impressive painting / tapestry by Antonio Murado from his last period, a descendant of those who were in his recent exhibition.
The explosion of color comes from Rebeca Plana, whose paintings stand out for their fast, energetic and vibrant stroke, while Simon Edmondson creates opposite sensations, inviting us to comfort and warmth through his Chaise Longe.
