Exhibition by Angel Otero and Joshua Abelow

22 Nov-22 Dec

The Brand New Gallery displays this exhibition by the Puerto Rican artist Angel Otero and by American artist Joshua Abelow.

Otero, considered in the USA the successor of Basquiat, is famous for his unconventional use of traditional materials. He is inspired by history of art and particularly by the typical gestures of abstract expressionism with references to the Spanish Baroque. Otero is fascinated by matter and production processes. His current technique deals with atelier refuse: old canvases are scraped of their paint lumps in order to create new compositions. His slow process transforms them into an explosion of colours, which emphasises the sinuous draperies formed by the accumulation of paint.

Abelow explores the sense of life on the border between figurative and abstract art. His works represent a critical and referential autobiographical exercise, filtered through irony. His productions combine painting and drawing. The colour and rigid geometrical composition of his apparently spontaneous canvases hide a methodical procedure, which follows schematic rules. On the contrary his drawings, which often portray a mocking, autobiographical subject, are crazy scrawls, created without taking the pencil off from the sheet.
