In his summer solo exhibition at Karin Weber Gallery, Spanish artist Alberto Reguera continues his fascination with the vibrant colours of his homeland, reflected in the vivid hues used by the artist in his geometric objects. From warm golds to intense blues and glowing reds, his three-dimensional abstracts capture impressions of the rural scenery he grew up in. Inspired by the French lyrical abstract painters and their Romantic style, Reguera represents the spectacular vistas of his native Castile using geometric shapes and vibrant colours. His rendition is poetic — be it in the use of painting materials or in the luminous textures that are layered over each other in his paintings. Powdered pigment applied directly onto a blank canvas surface to create a unique, multilayered texture that resembles distinct geographical and topographical formations. About the Artist: Born in 1961, Alberto Reguera is a Spanish artist living and working in Madrid. A graduate in Modern History from the University of Valladolid, it was his native Castile that induced him with its open spaces. Reguera has been selected on several occasions to participate in various contemporary art workshops at the "Círculo de Bellas Artes" (Fine Arts Society) in Madrid, where he received invaluable help from some of the masters of contemporary Spanish painting including Lucio Muñoz. In 2010 he showed his project 'Beyond Form II' in City Hall, Hong Kong, sponsored by Consulate of Spain. In 2015, the University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong organized a retrospective exhibition of his work entitled 'Blue Expansive Landscape,' also in collaboration with the Spanish Consulate in Hong Kong. He staged a retrospective exhibition at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo Esteban Vicente in 2016. His paintings are included in several prestigious collections internationally including the CEIBS of Shanghai, The Junta de Castilla y Leon, The Fundacio Juan March Museum in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, olorVISUAL in Barcelona, Spain, ESCE in Paris, Marc Moyens in Washington, D.C., Museum of Contemporary Art in Madrid, The OECD Collection in Paris, Zurich Financial Services in Switzerland and The Royal Collections, Patrimonio Nacional, participating in an exhibition at the Royal Palace, Madrid.
