Alberto Garcia-Alvarez, 2018-112, 2018. Mixed media on wood, 37 x 17.5 x 4cm. Courtesy: the artist and Tim Melville Gallery, Auckland.
The artist says: “A piece of wood crossing colour, blue crossing the other yellow. A yellow dies when over dark at wide angle with bloody reds. Wood with black; smeared pigment passing over the blue with white.
“The red almost touching the wall, the black absorbing its pigment. But it’s not what I wanted to see … Should be darker yellow on red as when crossing over the river. Dark thoughts need black intensity! Crossing over the high mountain; crossing the blue ‐ reaching further – lighter if covered with silver; silver and red form white shadows, intersections or points of view crossing the street or the river … of my thoughts and a length of wood.”
Exhibition Opens: 6–8pm Tuesday 16 July 2019.
