Jordi Alcaraz

(lifePR) (Köln, ) Galerie Stefan Röpke is pleased to present its third solo-exhibition of works by Jordi Alcaraz, on view February 23 - April 13, 2013.

The diversity of materials Jordi Alcaraz utilizes in his work, and the creative ways he manipulates them to create his poetic spatial compositions blur many of the lines between the different art forms, from drawing and painting, to sculpture and architecture, and even literature and nature. What we experience with looking at his work is very much in tune with the very process and curiosities that Jordi pours into them: a playful and experimental exploration of materials with minimal execution that allows each gesture to carry a gravity and necessity within the composition of each work. Light and shadow play an equal role as paint, graphite, and found objects in compositions within a physical framework that presents itself both as boundary and as visual and sculptural element. These are works that balance the solidity of the sculptural form and the fragility of the ephemeral composition.

Jordi Alcaraz was born in Callela, Barcelona, Spain where he lives and works. His work has been widely exposed around the world including the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG), Los Angeles (2011); LACMA, Los Angeles (2011); Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig (2010); Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona (2010); Centre d'Art Tecla Sala, L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, (2008) and Fundación Telefónica, Madrid (2001), among others. And, this year, Alcaraz will participate in the exhibition Nuage in the Musée Reattu de Arles, France.

Examples of his work can be found in many important private and public collections including the Biedermann Museum, Donaueschingen, Colección Fontanal Cisneros, Miami, Museo Can Framis, Barcelona, Fundación Vila Casas, and Centro de arte Tecla Sala.

Opening Preview: February 22, 2013, 6:00pm - 9:00pm.
