Spanish artist Alberto Reguera is staging his second solo exhibition in Karin Weber Gallery emphasizing spatial volume, pigment and expansion. Taking nature as a departure point of creation, Reguera meticulously works out the texture, colors melting into one another. Each painting is an abstraction of a landscape, with heavy layers of paint, color pigment spilling beyond the canvas into the white space.
One could definitely feel the emphasis on volume, movement and energy in the works on canvas. Reguera is eliminating the traditional frontiers between painting, sculpture and pictorial installation. Most of the 15 expansive paintings in the coming exhibition have been created with the aim to produce harmony within the Karin Weber Gallery.
Alberto Reguera (Spain, 1961) lives in Madrid and Paris. While this Hong Kong exhibition is under way he is also involved in an institutional show in Paris, where he is exhibiting individually at Campus Eiffel 1 of the École Supérieure du Commerce Extérieur (ESCE). In 2012 he staged a UNESCO-sponsored exhibition at Place du Louvre in Paris. That same year he was “artist in residence” in Shanghai, where he produced two large expanded paintings for the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) collection. Along with his paintings held by that prestigious Chinese institution, his works also form part of the Testimoni Caixa collection in Barcelona, the Marc Moyens collection in Washington D.C., and the Juan March Foundation’s collection in Madrid, amongst others. In Madrid he exhibited at the ARCO international fair last year (Nuble stand).
