Joaquim Chancho

Tarragona, Spain, 1943.

Joaquim Chancho's work has been characterized by a rigorous structural awareness, by spatial orders, by chromatic links and by the expressiveness arising from metrics and repetition. His first works, at the beginning of the seventies, are based on the dialogue between gesture and geometry and the reduction of color to black and white. Later it tends to seriality and sequentiality, to focus on the surface of the painting in recent years as pure abstraction. Routes that reach a complex reticular organization that attends to a polyhedral vision of space, creating a set of frames and grids that intersect, open, close, expand, contract, reduce, overlap and continuously modify. A kind of fold between the painting and the viewer.

He currently reviews and resituates his previous work, mainly in the work on paper.
