Barcelona critic Juan Bufill weighs in on Miguel Marcos' group show "ABSTRACTIONS".


Via Google Translate (fine tuned):

Juan Bufill

Next October 10 is the opening date chosen
this year by many galleries in Barcelona, ​​but some have not waited for Barcelona Gallery Weekend (from 10 to 13 of October). This is the case for Gallerie Miguel Marcos, who presents a select sample of international abstract painting. The artist best known of the five is Julian Schnabel. In the eighties there were private collectors, directors and museum directors that had idolized Schnabel. It seems to be that the parties given in his New York home were memorable, and that had certainly helped his fame. For those who did not have the pleasure of attending these parties, it was harder to find reasons for enthusiasm. But I recognize that the painting shown in Miguel Marcos' group show is one of the best of this painter and also film author: the carnal and turbulent "Christ's Last Day", painted in the year 2000 (illustrated). "Bone Black IV" (2006), by Xavier Grau, and "... the answer to everything ..." (2011), by Dennis Hollingsworth, these are pieces worthy of a good museum of contemporary art. Pity that our Macba (Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona) has forgotten, so far, of the best painting of the 21st century and late twentieth.
