Spanish artist Alberto Reguera continues his fascination with the vibrant colours of his homeland, reflected in the vivid hues used by the artist in his geometric objects. From warm golds to intense blues and glowing reds, his three-dimensional abstracts capture impressions of the rural scenery he grew up in. Alberto Reguera Born 1961, Segovia, Spain. Lives and works in Paris and Madrid
Inspired by the French lyrical abstract painters and their Romantic style, Reguera represents the spectacular vistas of his native Castile using geometric shapes and vibrant colours. His rendition is poetic — be it in the use of painting materials or in the luminous textures that are layered over each other in his paintings. His abstract landscapes had typically been created by a semi-controlled use of powdered pigment applied directly onto a blank canvas surface to create a unique, multilayered texture that resembles distinct geographical and topographical formations.
He offers the viewer a three-dimensional cross-section of view of the painting. Some of his “painting objects” are installed on the ground, forming a painting installation in which each work is a part of a large picture with multiform volume, offering multiple viewpoints. In his more recent endeavours, the artist experiments with different geometrical shapes including circular and elliptical surfaces suggesting a growing interest in exploring celestial and unknown spaces.
