Alejandro Guijarro: LEAD


10 March – 28 April 2017 

Tristan Hoare is delighted to present LEAD, an exhibition of new photographs by the Madrid-born, London-based artist Alejandro Guijarro. 

For his second solo show at Tristan Hoare, Guijarro presents a new body of work that extends his photographic inquiries into the connection between art and science. Working in collaboration with the conservation and collections departments of The Prado Museum, Madrid, The Louvre, Paris and The National Gallery, London, the artist scanned X-ray and ultra-violet renditions of Old Master paintings – including works by Uccello, van Dyck, Rubens, Delacroix, Goya and Velazquez amongst others. Monochromatic and energetic, the resulting photographs possess a graphic power strangely suggestive of the New York School artists, or a Gerhard Richter abstract.
