Alberto Galvez: una noche sin ornamento

19 September - 5 October 2014

Spanish painter Alberto Galvez is known for his oil on linen paintings that capture an enchanted world. His influences run from antiquity and renaissance imagery to poetry and French avant-garde films of the 1960s.  Throughout, he reminds us that the ideals of the classical period, proportion, balance and harmony, are still operative, inspiring and engaging.

Galvez embraces this understanding to create images that exist outside of space and time. His exceptional use of translucent oils give an ethereal quality to his surface. His body of work is a moving attestation to the aesthetic power of the human gaze.
