Patricia Queiruga - Agora Gallery
Through October 30, 2018 - New York
Collective Exhibition With an ever-changing combination of paints, Patricia Queiruga builds work that ranges from abstract to figurative, but remains reliably organic. In each of the artist's works, paint builds, drizzles, and drips into shape. The movement of the material on the canvas and the artist's action in making the work is always visible. In some works vibrant streaks of red or yellow burst through the composition. Inspired by music, Queiruga makes energetic choices in acrylic, oil, and mixed media, translating the exciting notes into a visual practice.
