Color Space at Delimbo Gallery
“Color Space” is the first solo show of the American artist Alex Brewer/Hense in Spain.
For this exhibition, the artist presents his recent artwork, realized in different media and formats. These new paintings are a combination of spontaneous and predetermined processes. Some of the forms that he has been using lately either begin as drawings, cut paper or are completely spontaneously conceived.
Most of his last years production, is related to stripping things down to the core language of some of his previous works, by focusing on simple compositions. In these terms, the monotypes on paper are essentially explorations of color and form using visual references that he pulls from his paintings and murals. Thus, he explores the round-trip relationships between his public art projects and his studio practice: “A mural may inform a painting and a painting may inform a sculpture or work on paper and vis versa. As an artist who works in both public space and gallery settings, I always enjoy dealing with the challenges and stark differences of the two unique spaces”.
