2014 / Lenzo en branco / Galería Besada / O Grove
First solo exhibition at the gallery Besada in O Grove from 21March to 6 May 2014. A new serie was presented with more colourful works than in the past. The lines of the horizon are highlighted and a special attention is paid to the landscape representation. The main work in this exhibition is a painting sized 220 x 170 cm. Several white colors are used in it.
There are three reason that come together to explain the title of the exhibition, “White canvas“. Last july an aluminium company where Uxió worked closed down. So now Uxió in a new departure, like a white canvas. On the other side the exhibited serie at the gallery Besada is recent and unpolished, created in 2014.It´s like a white canvas. In addition Uxió has a new white dog that he callas Canvas.
