On October 16th, the SC Gallery in Bilbao (Spain) will present the first solo exhibition by Suso33 on Basque soils. The much celebrated artist from Madrid will be attending the event and will be signing copies of his new book, ‘One Line‘, that will also be available for purchase in the gallery.
Suso33 “Scenographic representations of Bilbao Black Paintings 2015″.
Opening: Friday, October 16th at 7:30 PM. The exhibition will run until December 4th, 2015.
‘Through a total of 10 works we are offered a glimpse of his most recent pictorial production, all of which are new works produced especially for the occasion: “Scenographic representations of Bilbao Black Paintings 2015”.
These works were made posterior to his residency in Scotland in 2014, where he first began the Black Paintings series in the form of wall painting interventions in Dufftown. In them, the artist interacts with paint on top of stains that form on walls due to lichens, humidity, and degradation over time.
He has titled them Black Paintings for two reasons: one being of a physical or exterior nature, given their dark color resulting from the phenomenon of corrosion, and another that is emotionally or inner self-inspired, by topics that he reflects upon afterwards: tormented souls, existential finitude, and personal inner catharsis. He uses nature as a stage upon which to express profound feelings.‘ SC Gallery.
