Galleria Duemila proudly presents Epicentre by Gus Albor. True to his oeuvre, the compositions are progressively minimal and dominantly grey. In this show, his 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.
An accomplished artist his work has been exhibited in Galerie Etienne de Causans, Paris, France; Ariadne Gallery, Vienna, Austria; and Stadt Museum, Dusseldorf, Germany. Epicentre will be on view from December 7, 2014 – January 30, 2015 at Galleria Duemila, located at: 210 loring St., Pasay City 1300.
