Jaime Gili

Barbaro

2006
Acrylic on canvas

230 x 268 cm

Jaime Gili’s paintings combine the austerity of geometric design with the confidence and authenticity of painterly gesture. Presented in a cluster, his paintings are often not hung, but leant against the wall, creating a temporal architecture that suggests the transience and development of urban space. Executed in vibrant colours, Gili’s large-scale canvases capitalise on their visual power to motivate and allure. Bold splinters of pitch black, copper metallic, or tainted pink pierce through grounds animated with drips, smudges, and impassioned swipes. His paintings are fields of raw, potent energy.
