Gow Langsford Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Antonio Murado. Murado is an extraordinarily versatile painter with his works ranging from heavily textured impasto dirges to melodious arias, always demonstrating his virtuosity with materials and skill at creating subtle painterly effect. In his new series of paintings, inspired by references such as Shakespeare's Ophelia and old Irish murder ballads, Murado displays this range of techniques with stunning results. Using various methods to blow liquid paint across pale scrims of brushed on, semi-transparent colour, the blown paint creates vaguely petal like forms that float over veil-like cooler hues. The subtle palette and meditative mood of these works, coupled with their layered physicality and bold brushwork, show that Murado is an artist who would have been at ease in the most brutish abstract expressionist circles but is not afraid to paint delicate and unabashedly beautiful pictures.
