A Mediterranean Meeting Point FOR URBAN LANDSCAPES

Stoa Gallery took part in the annual Scope Basel art fair for a second consecutive year. Curated by Conchi Alvarez, the Estepona gallery’s project was based on two painters the gallery represents: Frenchwoman Julie Alegre and Spain’s Conchi Alvarez. The idea behind their project was based on an interpretation of the urban landscape and the Mediterranean as its meeting point… “a sea which has developed around a sense of life that only occurs on its shores, and that has had, precisely in cities, a passionate boisterous world, a common space, meeting cultures, which have been superimposed and have coexisted in harmony and mutual cultural enrichment. “All paintings belong to the figurative sphere and in all of them it is a city without people. Streets and corners of cities in southern Spain in acrylics on the panels of Conchi, and panoramic medinas of the M´Zab of Algeria in the inks on paper of Julie. For these two creators, the city is the scenario of dreams and daydreams, desires and lived experiences, and the common denominator is bright, powerful and saturated colour, seeming to want to transmit enthusiasm to the most skeptical, proposing to dream, or daydream, with an ideal city, more friendly, polite, full of life… but in these landscapes, their past, the lived experiences, project their particular idiosyncrasy and a landscaping that encloses much more the appreciation of a simple look.”
