Esteban Vicente. Obras de 1953 a 1996 Esteban Vicente 27.11/31.01 2019-2020

The quality of color is light

Galería Elvira González is pleased to announce the exhibition Esteban Vicente. Works from 1953 to 1996. The show brings together a selection of thirty works developed over the course of four decades and gathers paintings, collages and drawings. This is the gallery’s eleventh exhibition dedicated to Esteban Vicente, an artist who is intimately related to Elvira González.

The exhibition presents a retrospective selection of works from different stages of the painter, all produced within the School of New York. This show introduces, in addition to paintings, a wide selection of his well-known collages. The discovery of the possibilities of the collage technique, which he continued to use all his life, radically impacted his process from this moment on. His procedure with painting and collage becomes indissoluble from each other.  For Vicente, they offered the same paths of formal and material research. Therefore, it is not possible to make a hierarchical distinction between his pictorial work and his collages.
