Alfonso de Torres Guajardo (San Sebastián, Spain, 1960) "Duck-Plain" (2021)

Oil, mixed technique, paper 80x65 cm.

 

The present work was first displayed during the exhibition Unpleasant or Beautiful, which took place at Aspa Contemporary Gallery in April 2021. Unpleasant or Beautiful presents the most recent painting by Alfonso de Torres, eighteen medium format  works that emanate vitality, intuition and play.

 

De Torres integrates a field of pastel shades; tangles of colors and structures, scrapnotes of exotic travels, Italian films and tiny animals, Pop elements to which he frequently turns to. Turning out in compositions that are expressionist in their intuitive trial and error process, and abstract in their subordination of all these resources to a set of mass, line and color.

 

Alfonso de Torres Guajardo (San Sebastián, 1960) began his artistic career in the 80s, carried out several individual and collective exhibitions especially in Madrid, where he lives; standing out those celebrated in the Alliance Française, gallery Santa Barbara, Desirée Lieven and Elvira Carreras, Navacerrada Town Hall, Orfila gallery and Aspa Contemporary.

 

De Torres starts from the informalist painting, performed with an open character. Chance origins other encounters, from a collagist understanding of the composition, to the insistence on a calligraphic gesture which in its Twomblian resonance summarizes a joy of life, an enjoyment of the unpredictable.

De Torres artworks sumup the joy of living, the unpredictable, intuition and amusement.Starting fromTwomblian interpretation of informalist painting, chance unites the collagist understanding of composition with the insistence on the calligraphic gesture.De Torres overlaps entangled colours and structures on pasteltones fields with Pop Art elements such as clippings of exotic trips, Italian films and cute animals. The result is a composition that is expressionist in its intuitive process oftrial and error, and abstract in its subordination all these resources to a set of mass,line and colour.
