Press release

Almine Rech Shanghai is pleased to present José Lerma’s first solo show at the gallery, and his first solo exhibition in China. 

José Lerma is a multimedia artist who works primarily in portraiture. Lerma’s practice is most responsive to not only the social and material conditions of the cities he inhabits, but also to the works of art put on display by their institutions. He has described his practice as akin to that of a landscape painter, turning his eye into a sieve able to distill and record telling details about the worlds physically proximate to him. His recent suite of portraits is known for its rejection of character psychology and its distinctively haptic materiality, produced with a custom-mixed acrylic paint that allows for a signature impasto.

José Lerma (b.1971, Spain), now lives and works in Puerto Rico.
