LINO LAGO: FAKE ABSTRACT
We are pleased to announce the opening of Lino Lago's second solo exhibition at Galerie Robertson Arès on November 12th, 2021. The exhibition is to be experienced as a journey through time, art and its history. Every glance, every smile invites to a disturbing encounter with art, hidden by itself. Where contemporary art and classical and academic art challenge each other, the work becomes a particular temporal and aesthetic experience. Lino Lago's works provoke a reading between the lines, guided by movement, sometimes even fleeing from the canvas. Capturing every angle and every shape means gradually removing the coloured veil that hides the faces. On closer inspection, deciphering the shapes also means making a series of details appear in a uniform mass, following the movement of a brushstroke. The exhibition aims to make us become artists ourselves through our eyes and our ability to glimpse the invisible, to rediscover the visible.
Lino Lago's artwork is part of collections such as the Harvard Business School, the Flint Institute of Arts, the MEAM Art Museum, the Barcelona Fundacion Abanca Bank and many others. His work has appeared in prestigious international publications such as The New York Times, Architectural Digest, Vogue Italia and has been featured in Fuera de Serie magazine as one of the artists to invest in.
