New Paintings 2018-2022 Gerardo Delgado


Galería Helga de Alvear presents the latest works by the artist Gerardo Delgado (Olivares, Seville, 1942) which occupy the three rooms at the gallery. A different series is exhibited in each one:

Zócalo Isla [Zócalo Island] (2018-2021) consists of four works: the first of which presents curved vertical lines that take up one fourth of the painting. These lines will continue to advance in the successive canvases until they cover the entire surface.

The series Entramado [Pattern] (2021) presents a growing interest in mixing order and chaos with sharp contrasts between forms and colors on dripping backgrounds whose composition is organized by four intertwined and inclined elements.

Curves take center stage in the works belonging to the series Lomba (2022), creating independent flat, opaque, or transparent surfaces over patched backgrounds.

Gerardo Delgado studied architecture at the Escuela Técnica Superior in Seville between 1959 and 1967 and was Professor of Architectural Forms Analysis at the same school from 1968 to 1990. In 1996 he joined the Projects Department where he remained until 2012.­­­­
