Ascaso Gallery is pleased to invite you to the presentation of the special project: "Julio Larraz" at its booth in ArtMiami 2018
Galería de Arte Ascaso Caracas in collaboration with Ascaso Gallery Miami presents a special project by maestro Julio Larraz on the occasion of the Art Miami 2018 fair (booth AM210B). The show that will only be current Dec.4-9 (during ArtBaselMiami week) is a careful selection of 8 works (7 paintings and one sculpture) covering the last years of his extensive and successful career in the international high circuits of contemporary art. Most of these select paintings were made in 2018, so they are exhibited for the first time on the occasion of this annual event.
The exhibition is an excellent opportunity to see in a synthesized manner, the various themes that recurrently appear in Larraz's painting. The landscapes of marine environments, the satire to the images of power, the home as a space that protects the utopia of being, history and the process of representation in memory, some of the topics covered in these ten magnificent paintings of oil on cloth. The present selection of works reveals on the one hand, his exceptional gift as a narrator in images of the contradictions that cross the spirit of our time. On the other hand, these paintings speak of an artist that is meticulous and risky in the development of a very refined pictorial profession.
Something perceptible in the capture of light, in the subtle treatment of its texture and nuances that illuminate very personal scenes and landscapes, imbued with sensuality and dynamism, transferring the viewer to imaginary and mysterious worlds.
