MANILA – Artist Gus Albor is set to open his latest show ‘Epicentre’ on December 7 at Galleria Duemila in Pasay.
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, Albor’s 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 to January 30, 2015 at Galleria Duemila, located at: 210 loring St., Pasay City 1300.
