The Spanish Embassy in Belgium and Irène Laub Gallery are pleased to announce their collaboration on the occasion of Inversion Intention, a duo show by Spanish artist Guillermo Mora and by Belgian artist Bernard Villers. At the heart of their abstract language, both share the same sensitivity, precision and playfulness. This intercultural and intergenerational dialogue presents deconstructed compositions, proposing a plastic reflection on the nature of painting and its spatial presence.
Guillermo Mora (b. 1980, Madrid)’s practice is a process of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Evading the traditional boundaries between painting and sculpture, his work takes different forms and looks at the forgotten histories of painting – specifically through means of concealment, overlapping and disappearance.
Bernard Villers (b. 1939, Brussels) questions the traditional relationship between support and color, revealing a true symbiotic interaction and fostering an equal dialogue between those two essential elements. The artist diverts the viewer’s expectations by proposing chromatic interventions that are direct and minimal without being devoid of emotion : the beauty of everyday life reveals itself in the subtle imperfections of his lines.
