Javier Lorenzo. Paintings

Alicante, 5 December 2017

Translated by Salomé García


“Javier Lorenzo. Painting.” will be held from 5 December 2017 to 1 February 2018 in Juana Francés Hall at the Alicante City University Venue. This exhibition is formed by twelve works recently painted by the local artist, all of them depicting intimate and personal moments. Javier creates real events filtered  by his powerful imagination, together with his unique portraits of people facing away. This exhibition is completed by topics such as still life paintings, inspired by everyday objects found in his studio, and broad perspective local landscapes. The opening will take place at 8 p.m. on Tuesday 5 December.

His technique, closely related to hyper-realism, together with his precise drawing, gives Javier Lorenzo’s paintings a three-dimensional aura where each element plays an important part in the final work. This artist’s use of light and particular point of view on the scene are also part of the final work, formed by poetic and evocative landscapes. With regards to his characters, they are modelled on friends and relatives framed in precise and strategically located places and moments.

"Javier Lorenzo (Alicante, 1950) is an artist with a long and prolific career: during his over four decades as a professional artist, he has held more than 40 individual exhibitions, as well as countless collective shows. A career devoted to painting and creating his compositions, frames and atmospheres. In short, breathing life into the artwork.

Curators: Jorge Olcina and María Marco
