Imagery is projected onto a large 24 meter LED screen composed of a huge combination of data, which lends the viewer a “complete sensory experience” with audio that is closely synchronized.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary Mexican-American artist Daniel Gibson in Europe, United Kingdom, New York and Asia.


    Almine Rech hosted the artist's inaugural solo exhibition at Almine Rech New York in June 2021. His second solo exhibition will take place at Almine Rech Paris, Front Space in July 2022.

    Daniel Gibson (b. 1977, Yuma, AZ) grew up in El Centro, CA, and other surrounding towns that border Mexicali, Baja California. Both of Gibson's parents immigrated from Mexico, settling in the American southwest. This led to Gibson's early inspiration from his exposure to the desert and communities, as well as the sheetrock factory in Plaster City, CA, where his father worked. Gibson’s output is bred by his indispensable draw towards creation, an expressive therapeutic flow of visions and beliefs, real life situations and dreams, comprising a combination of elements incomparably extricated and productively gifted.

    Daniel Gibson currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
    He is represented by Shulamit Nazarian in Los Angeles.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce its participation in the 2021 TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art auction with a work by Haley Josephs.


    Haley Josephs
    MY DOLPHIN FANTASY, 2021
    Oil on linen - 10 x 8 inches

    Fairy tales are grasping at a world that can never be. Maybe a painting is a fairy tale? It’s a reflection of our world, but with a spin on it that makes it forever unattainable. Like a bug preserved in crystal, you can’t get to it without breaking it all apart. What is reality? What is the dream?­­ 
    - Haley Josephs

    Brooklyn-based painter Haley Josephs focuses on fantasy and femininity in her archetypal portraits, painted in the artist’s brushy, luminous style. The fairy tale scenes Jospehs create vary from light, elemental works, like this painting My Dolphin Fantasy, to darker scenes of post-apocalyptic anger and alienation. Here, the figure has a carefree aura as she emerges from an idealized ocean with whimsical dolphins leaping behind her. A graduate from Yale University’s MFA program, Josephs has exhibited in the US, Mexico, and China, and her work is in the collection of the X Museum, Beijing, among others.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary American artist Gerasimos Floratos in France, Belgium and China.


    Almine Rech hosted the artist's inaugural solo exhibition at Almine Rech Paris in November 2020. His second solo exhibition will take place at Almine Rech Brussels, Belgium in September 2022, as well as a solo presentation at Château de Boisgeloup, Gisors, France, in October 2022.

    Gerasimos Floratos (b. 1986) lives and works in New York City. Floratos grew up enmeshed in the overwhelming sensorial experience that is Times Square, the pounding commercial and touristic heart of the city, a place the artist refers to as “the center of the center”. To this day, his studio is stationed there, where he continues to work and live.

    Surrounded by the restlessness of midtown Manhattan, Floratos uses the hyper-charged atmosphere of his neighborhood as a springboard for a deeper exploration of the urban matrix and the human subconscious. Impastoed paintings that are at once luminous and torpidly congested feature a rotating cast of anthropomorphic creatures: sauntering pedestrians, skyscraper bouquets, honking commuters, trudging oversize shoes, and hands with gigantic mushrooming fingers. 

    Laden with the sonic qualities of city life, Floratos’ psycho-figurative bodies simultaneously map the internal workings of the artist's mind, and the visceral experience of his physical environment in what he describes as a form of “psychogeography”, a term borrowed from Guy Debord, a founding member of the Situationist International movement of the 1960s. By examining the ways the urban environment shapes our lived experience, Floratos captures the chaotic and anxious pace of the city, creating dense spaces crowded by larger than life subjects that radiate the oblivious audacity of big city personas.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary Spanish artist Jorge Galindo in France, Belgium, United Kingdom and Asia.


    Jorge Galindo was born in 1965 in Madrid, Spain. Trained in the workshops of the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, his artistic oeuvre spans more than three decades. Describing his own work as “dirty pop,” his monumental paintings are gestural and expressionist. Over the past thirty years, Jorge Galindo has made paintings which often synthesize elements of collage. Using a range of materials, his lush and colorful surfaces are executed in an energetic, sometimes chaotic style. 

    Galindo’s work has been exhibited internationally including at the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C.; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; and the Hammer Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA. The Hall Art Foundation Schloss Derneberg presents an exhibition of Galindo’s work on view until the summer of 2022. 
    Galindo lives and works in Toledo, Spain.

  • DnA SHENZHEN


    September 30 — October 4, 2021
    Booth C17


    Please join Almine Rech at DnA SHENZHEN 2021, presenting a solo project of Vivian Springford.
    The American abstract painter Vivian Springford (1913-2003) provides a fascinating case study of a mid-century American woman artist. With an emphasis on gesture, dripping, and splattering, Springford's works of the 1950s bore a clear connection to Abstract Expressionism. The primary influence of her early work came from East Asian arts and letters, particularly Chinese calligraphy, Taoism and Confucianism.
    We look forward to welcoming you at Booth C17.

  • One by One: Ha Chong-Hyun


    September 29 - October 11, 2021


    EXPLORE ONLINE! 

    Almine Rech is pleased to share Ha Chong-Hyun: Conjunction 19-28, 2019, the ninth installment of One by One, Almine Rech’s series of exclusive online viewing rooms dedicated to extraordinary individual artworks.


    A prominent member of the Dansaekhwa (“Monochrome Painting”) movement, Ha Chong-Hyun began his practice in the aftermath of the Korean War, using materials he found on the street, such as barbed wire and burlap sacks left over from American food aid.

    While such materials carry political resonances, Ha has always focused more on material dynamics and physical processes than on symbolic concerns, as when he placed barbed wire on top of cloth in the sun to burn its shadow onto the support, or as when he began meticulously using wooden slats covered in paper to push paint through burlap from the back, creating subtly aleatory textures on the front side. This process formed the foundation for a lifelong series of paintings titled Conjunctions, in which Ha continues to wrestle with color and texture in an endless exploration of monochrome painting.
