Almine Rech Paris is pleased to present Jorge Galindo’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view until June 3, 2023.

Jorge Galindo, Spanish artist who came up in the late 1980s, has been turning painting into an experimental field of expression since the beginning of his trajectory. This aspect is central to all of his body of work, which is also equally fundamental for other important artists today, such as Ray Smith or even Julian Schnabel — since, in all of these cases, we can witness a liberation of the expressive forces stemming from a new understanding of the very act of painting.

We could say that, in this regard, the work of these artists freed painting from most of its previous historical meanings — the obligation to represent reality, the Greenbergian issue of permanence on the medium’s surface, the shapes of what we might call conceptual abstraction (post painterly) brought by Frank Stella, and many other ideas — finding a new meaning in this experimental domain, different from the historical model that Modernism had previously given it, and which made it, throughout the 20th century, a means of expression with its own limited protocols.
