Las flores salvajes

Jun 16 — Sep 3, 2023 | CAC Málaga, Málaga, Spain

The CAC Málaga presents Las flores salvajes [Wild flowers], an exhibition by Madrid artist Jorge Galindo, one of the leading exponents of contemporary painting in Spain, whose practice has been a field of experimental expression since the beginning of his career. The exhibition brings together a selection of twenty-four large-for-mat paintings with the theme of flowers as their common source of inspiration. Some of these works, produced over the last four years, have never been on display before. The show also includes one of the first paintings of the series, dating from 2009. 

Passionately devoted to the medium of painting, Jorge Galindo is one of the most outstanding and original Spanish artists of his generation, whose production has had an impact on the international scene. He began exhibiting his work at the end of the 1980s, when he was associated with the Workshops of Current Art at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid. His initial cre-ations focused more on material and tactile aspects than on picto-rial grammar, using tarpaulin, hessian and other waste fabrics and even employing a variety of found materials in place of conven-tional canvas supports. Iconographic and visual references subse-quently made an appearance in his works, through collage and photomontage – two distinctive techniques of his visual language – and the incorporation into the pictorial space of prints taken from calendars, advertising magazines and film journals.
