    ALBERTO REGUERA: BLUE EXPANSIVE LANDSCAPE
    < Back

    The University Museum and Art Gallery is delighted to collaborate with Spanish artist Alberto Reguera on Blue Expansive Landscape. This exhibition highlights a borderless space that is woven together by the artist’s paintings, sculptures and installations. Reguera’s work across various media shares a similar visual structure formed through an expansive use of the colour blue. Diverse stylistic elements are then linked to create a single aesthetic and conceptual unit.

    Born in Segovia, Spain, in 1961, Alberto Reguera now divides his time between Paris and Madrid. His work originates in his admiration for the French lyrical abstract artists; in his evocation of the Romantic landscape painters; and in the spectacular vistas of his native Castile. Reguera's abstract landscapes represent fragmented elements of nature that he constitutes via a discrete series of shapes and colours. Tones and textures multiply as he experiments with the colour blue's position in space. Depending upon the play of light, greater nuances and ranges appear.

    Reguera’s overall intention is poetic—in his use of painting materials, in the luminous layered textures and in his affirmation of the physical act of painting. He stresses a sense of visual depth and offers a three-dimensional view that transforms the two-dimensional medium into sculptural pieces. Several of the ‘painted objects’ are installed on the ground, so as to form an installation of paintings. Within this construct of blue, each painting is an integral aspect of a larger and more complex work. Multiform volumes offer various views, and the work extends across a flowing space seeking equilibrium with the material.

    This exhibition has been generously supported by the Spanish Consulate in Hong Kong and Macau, and it received corporate sponsorship from Blue Move and El Corte Inglès. The museum’s outreach programme includes guided visits, lectures and workshops.
