JD Malat Gallery is delighted to announce the upcoming debut solo exhibition Physis, by Luis Olaso, from 9 September until 9 October 2021.
Physis features eleven new mixed-media paintings, showing a colourful array of abstracted ‘compositions’ of objects, plants and organic shapes in an effort to highlight Olaso’s role as a protagonist in the field of abstract art and underline the expressive possibilities of still-life painting.
The exhibition takes its name after ‘physis’, an ancient Greek philosophical and scientific term that denotes the principle of growth or change in nature. Olaso understands Physis not only as a reflection of the natural forms in his work, but also as a metaphor for the evolutionary and improvisational process behind his painting.
Gallery Founder, Jean-David Malat, remarked; “there is something new and exciting about Olaso’s paintings. I came across his work during Untitled Miami art fair and I was immediately captivated by the vibrancy of the colours and his unique expression of the age-old genre of ‘still-life’ painting. I have been following his work for a few years, it’s really special as there’s always a new element to discover and I am looking forward to sharing that with the public this September”.
