NEW YORK, NY.- Von Lintel Gallery announces an exhibition of new paintings by the Spanish artist Antonio Murado.

Murado’s canvases are feats of technical virtuosity, demonstrating his facility with paint and ability to create paintings that are at once both abstract and representational. From a distance, this new body of work appears to approach photographic realism, but when viewed more closely the rural landscape imagery dissolves entirely. Murado is interested in the idea that our eye seeks recognizable forms, finding a visual narrative where there are only brushstrokes. Several of the new paintings include a solid block of bright color that stands in contrast to the subtlety and depth of the rest of the canvas—a continuation of Murado’s interest in juxtaposing movement with stillness and transparency with solidity. These bold vivid bands interrupt the suggestion of the nineteenth-century landscape painting, blending tradition and innovation to surprise and captivate.

Murado has exhibited internationally for over two decades. His work is held by many major Spanish museums and is included in important public and private collections throughout Europe and the United States. Murado’s paintings have been written about extensively in Spain and the numerous publications that have reviewed his work in the United States include ArtForum and The New York Times. Born in Lugo, Spain, the artist currently lives and works in New York.
