Alejandro Quincoces & Carlos Morago at Badger & Fox Gallery
Newly launched Badger & Fox Gallery in Surry Hills has officially partnered with Sala Parés Gallery, Barcelona to exhibit works from two of Spain’s finest contemporary artists, Alejandro Quincoces and Carlos Morago.
From Thursday 2nd October until Sunday 12th October pieces from these artists will be available to purchase for the first time in Australia. Artist Alejandro Quincoces, Sala Parés Gallery Director Mr Ferran Josa and the Spanish Consul General, Sr. Alvaro Iranzo will be present at the ‘by invitation only’ opening night, for what is anticipated to be a memorable evening.
Sala Parés is Spain’s first and oldest leading gallery, established in 1887 the building is dedicated to art and famously known for hosting one of Pablo Picasso’s first exhibitions in 1901. Now it is devoted to launching the successful careers of Spanish artists and thanks to Badger & Fox Gallery open to Australian art collectors.
Bilbao-born Quincoces is much more than the quintessential painter of urban landscapes he is pinned to be. Often depicting cities that do not sleep, Quincoces creates an experience for the viewer that evokes a sense of adventure, allowing them to be transported to another place and time through his work.
Working with a limited palette of predominately oils, muted colours and charcoal washes, Quincoces works are exhibited and collected worldwide. Exploring human experience and emotion he aims to bring the viewer to a place that is familiar, thus the obvious references to infamous landscapes throughout his work.
Madrid born, Carlos Morago has also been exhibiting his work worldwide since the eighties. His distinctive style touches on elements of nature and landscapes both visited and created. An expertise at beautifully interpreting architecture, Morago’s work is intriguing leaving the viewer to wander through the various paths he depicts in his work. The exclusion of the human body within his paintings makes Morago’s style recognisable worldwide.
Thus far, throughout his career Marago has exhibited his work in France, Holland, Mexico, Belgium, Germany as well as all the major Spanish Cities, and now for the first time he will be exhibiting in Australia.
