Jordi Alcaraz: Traslúcido represents the first comprehensive view in America of Alcaraz’s profoundly poetic art. The exhibition brings together large and small scale works which transcend the categories of paintings, sculptures, and drawings as they blend all media, employing assemblage-like manner and installation. Conceptually, Alcaraz extends notions of perspective beyond the realms of the physically-seen. The surfaces of paintings and drawings can be pierced or peeled back in a manner that forces the viewer to consider more deeply the properties of the physical and ephemeral.
Jordi Alcaraz: Traslúcido announces Jack Rutberg Fine Arts’ representation of Jordi Alcaraz and the release of a comprehensive book on the artist entitled Jordi Alcaraz dibuixos, with texts by the leading Spanish art critic, Mariano Navarro, and the renowned American critic, curator and scholar, Peter Selz. This profusely illustrated book, co-published by Jack Rutberg Fine Arts, is presented with texts translated in English, Italian, German and Spanish.
