The Majorcan painter Guillem Nadal has a new opening ‘Obras recientes‘ (‘Recent Artworks’) in Galería Álvaro Alcázar. The exhibition, according to the author, has much to do with his previous projects as ‘Projecte per una illa‘, more poetical.
All the pieces work individually but also as a collection, as far as the talk about the same thing. Nadal defines them as chapters of a book, so this exhibition makes sense as a combined reading.
The painter uses those big-size artworks to explain the journeys to the human mind even in a religious sense, understanding religion as a daily act of believing in art, pointing the path of life. It is noteworthy paintings’ embroidery that Nadal explains as mental landscapes. The artist also presented a book with Iván de la Nuez’s text and two poems from José Carlos Llop talking about mental landscapes as well. Curiously because the sheets of this book are not stitched together so the reader is able to build up and down.
‘Guillem Nadal. Obras recientes‘ is at Galería Álvaro Alcázar till march 31st at calle Castelló, 41 in Madrid.
