Gus Albor: Epicenter
A catalog of the exhibition by Augusto 'Gus' Albor at Galleria Duemila in 2014, 'Epicenter' features minimal and dominantly grey abstract paintings. In this show, Albor's abstractions articulate attentiveness to the interplay between two surfaces: the body and the material.
Albor appropriates the human body with a utilitarian pretext. Here, the artist pays tribute to Yves Klein’s 'Anthropométries' through an array of soothing grey tonalities and figurations imprinted by using the female body as a paintbrush. All of this offers a nostalgic context as he renders compositions over his old landscape paintings.
