Featured Artist: Montserrat Alsina
Solo Exhibition: A Mist of Khaos and Absence

"As I walk on the sand in Las Galeras conversations emerge. An encounter with a leaf of the almond tree becomes curiosity. Its texture and strength awakens the imagination and initiates a transformation of materials and techniques. Discovering surface. Intuition, thoughts and imagination merge. Marvelous things are born, colors, sensations and forms arise: A Mist of Khaos and Absence." - Montserrat Alsina

In this exhibition you will encounter the development of this journey: the simple leaf, monotypes, mixed materials, digital images, photography and video. You will see small and large formats, some with color as well as the absence of color.
