A selection of work by Barcelona-based artist Guim Tió. Describing Tió’s work as a “breath of fresh air” — one that forces us to take a break from our lives and luxuriate in “the pause” — art critic Gisela Chillida sees Tio’s latest paintings as an exercise in imagination rather than recollection:
“If his last portraits were an exercise about memory, the new landscapes seem to think about the tomorrow that will soon be today. Previously he used to ask himself, where do we come from? Now, he wants to know, where are we going? That’s why the characters no longer remember or forget but, contemplate and imagine.”
