The exhibition represents American artist Stephen Rosenthal‘s first solo show, introducing two bodies of works developed by the painter during the last 15 years.
The first cycle exhibited includes apparently monochrome canvases, in reality pale painting in which, at a closer look, subtle references, signs and marks appear. The second and most recent cycle, is the result of a long process of preparation, which is part of the work itself. After completing the paintings, Rosenthal uses solvents and rags to slowly delete any figurative detail from their surfaces, in a process that sometimes could take even months. The few remaining sings are the one that survived the process of erosion.
