Flowers are the central theme of the paintings in the exhibition

Santi Moix is sending flowers to Galeria Carles Taché from Brooklyn

The exhibition by this New York based Catalan artist can be seen until the end of June.

Catalan painter Santi Moix’s studio is located in Brooklyn, in what was once an important shipyard for the US Navy, which has been transformed in an industrial, technological park devoted to innovation and creation. It is there that Moix has created his latest series of large-scale paintings, focussing on the theme of flowers. Those paintings can be seen at Galeria Carles Taché until the end of June in the exhibition The Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Moix’s paintings are, to a certain degree, removed from the conventional figurative tradition and are distanced from the flower as a reference, resembling other objects or making incursions into the abstract. They also have a lot to say about the artist’s sense of beauty: for Moix, beauty is vital and cannot be dissociated from pleasure. According to the gallery, Moix “is able to work on popular and universal themes with complete devotion,” because whatever he paints, “he enjoys investigating the very essence of pictorial representation serving a theme, a story or any concrete motive, and he finds the way to put all of his expertise into practice”.

Although he lives in New York, Santi Moix is a frequent visitor to Catalonia. He recently created murals for the Romanesque church of Sant Víctor de Saurí.

Additional information is available from the gallery website.
