In line with his predilection for Spanish contemporary painting, Arcturus Gallery is pleased to present the third exhibition in Paris of the painter Alejandro QUINCOCES.
This artist born in Bilbao in 1951, with an unusual path, has a passion from an early age as much for music as for painting. He began his studies of Fine Arts at the age of 36, and quickly gets a real recognition in Spain with many awards, and its presence in many collections. He is also exhibited regularly in Europe and the United States.
Items to which he devoted himself are mainly urban landscapes: cities, factories, highways, from a distance or up close, that he stares at and subtracts a moment of everyday reality to the incessant flow of time. Through the superposition of layers on wood, he seeks to capture the vibrant light of his environment. It is a mature and very strong work, where the effects of matter and light create subtle vibrations. The artist plays on the tension between abstraction and referential painting.
This exhibition is the one of a contemporary painter whose personality liberates a real inner strength which gives him an air of simplicity and serene strength, and whose work manages to fix a fleeting moment in an eternal moment.
