Miquel Barceló. Acquavella, New York


Surprising Miquel Barceló

This Mallorcan artist's latest venture, presented in the fabulous New York gallery Acquavella, was a surprising turn from his previous works. The fruits of this ceaseless experimentation have proved to be very powerful.

This is the first exposition in New York dedicated solely to Barcelo in the last ten years. Two series are exhibited; one is very striking, featuring portraits of the artist's family and friends on linen treated with bleach and charcoal. They are disturbing portraits with a forceful impact.

The other series consists of very expressive/symbolic white paintings where the circle plays an important role, metaphorically alluding to the sun, the bull-fighting arena, the bull's eye...The artists sees these works as akin to paintings on cave walls.
