The British artist is known for emphasizing the physical act of painting itself. His works are usually completed in a single session, and he rarely creates his works based off of preliminary sketches. Stripped of rich symbolism and complicated references, his works aim to transmit to the audience the energy and joy with which they were created in the most direct manner possible. Using a limited colour palette and almost always with black as the main colour, the artist seeks the most genuine form of expressing the marriage between human qualities and material properties.
Miquel Alzueta Gallery at the Palau de Casavells
Palau de Casavells is a historic building that dates back to the 14th century. Fully restored, the space is the headquarters of the Miquel Alzueta Gallery in the Empordà. Its nearly three thousand square metres are the ideal stage for a dialogue between different examples of today’s contemporary art. The Miquel Alzueta Gallery-Palau de Casavells specializes in contemporary art, antiques, and interior design. The gallery embodies a dialogue between 18th century furniture, the 1950s, photography, architecture, 21st century design, and contemporary art.
