Four Large Paintings: Tim Melville Gallery 27 Sep – 22 Oct 2016

” Made with thin, low sheen binder and powdered pigments, vigorously applied with various brooms and house-painting brushes, and largely constructed flat on the floor, these whopper Ab Ex works lure you into looking through loose tangles of dark tonally-matched chroma (of similar tertiary hues). You have to stand close to appreciate the richness of Garcia-Alvarez’s nuanced colour juxtapositions, and his expansive sense of bodily involvement within the direction of each large brushmark; their feathery, sprawling, filamenty, hairy traces.”
