Juan Genovés


The Marlborough Gallery exhibits the recent work of painter Juan Genovés, which portrays tiny figures that seem to escape en masse. The people painted by Genovés have wandered or run towards haunting spaces, and have been captured in the midst of some kind of action – captured in either a frozen, or at least slowed-down state.

These latest works have a playful aspect about them, suggesting a certain festive character in some of Genovés’ groupings. The recognisable world painted by this artist reveals itself in the form of a dance – unpredictable, disoriented, absurd and unstoppable.

Marlborough has published a catalogue bringing together the works exhibited at the gallery, printed by Artes Gráficas Palermo.

Exhibition period: From 07-02-2013 until 16-03-2013
