Glenmore Rd. - Paddington 2021 NSW. Sydney. SYDNEY. AUS.
PERSPECTIVE . 2006 (100 x 100 cm). Acrylic on canvas
contemporary abstract landscape artist, Alberto Reguera, exhibits a characteristically
emotive selection of paintings in his new exhibition Luminous Landscapes,
which will run from 1st August to 12th August at Scream, 34 Bruton Street,
Initially a student of art history, it is not surprising that Alberto’s
paintings are so evocative of the romantic traditions of landscape artists.
However Alberto chooses to go beyond the distinctive forms of the immediate
landscape and instead his works seem to free themselves somewhere off
in the heady distance of the vista. Forms and colours dissolve and reform
as Alberto captures the realm where earth, sky and matter all melt into
From icy winds to red hot lava flows, Alberto’s palette travels
across canvases that range from large scale works to smaller, box-framed
pieces, where the painted depths of the work actually spill around the
sides of the canvas in total celebration of the physical act of painting.
As his coarse layers of paint and sprinkled pigment sit comfortably alongside
fragile brushwork, so Alberto succeeds in harmonising the wildest and
the softest aspects of nature.
Alberto was born in Segovia, Spain, in 1961. In 1984 he attended a contemporary
art seminary at the Louvre Art School “L’Art du XXeme Siecle”.
After moving to Madrid in 1985, Alberto was selected several times to
participate in the Contemporary Art Workshops at the Circulo Bellas Artes,
where he received guidance from some of the maestros of contemporary Spanish
painting including amongst others, Lucio Munoz.
Though Alberto still continues with his workshop in Madrid, he has lived
and worked in Paris since 1991. In 1994 his works were exhibited in the
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, where the Dutch musician Bart Spaan interpreted
some of his contemporary compositions inspired by paintings of Alberto
Reguera. In 1995 he received the Paris Fine Arts Academy Award for Painting.
In 1999 he designed the poster of the Paris Theatre Festival. In 2001
he won the Ojo Critico Spanish Award, (Gold Award), Madrid. In 2003 he
was the only Spanish artist invited to join the “European Art Dupont
Circle” in Washington D.C.
Alberto Reguera’s paintings are held in a number of international
collections including The Louvre, Paris; Art Collection of the Government
of Castilla Leon and the Marc Moyens Collection, Washington.
