Biography

Antonio Alvarez works in the fruitful area between accident and intent, relying on his materials to direct the execution of a previously thought out plan. The resulting paintings share the brilliant palette and energy of a Hofman or Soutine while also owing something to the structured meditations of Rothko and Still.

" I work better in translating not thoughts, but emotional characteristics. I need parameters, a little bit of ground, a bridge to stand on."
