"Deixants i portes:" Catalan artist, Jordi Alcaraz's first solo exhibition in New York City featuring 27 new works

Tomlinson Kong Contemporary has organized DEIXANTS I PORTES, Catalan artist Jordi Alcaraz's first solo exhibition in New York City. The nearly two-dozen paintings and sculptures in this exhibition are explicitly not meant to relate to any preconceived theory, verbalization, or specific intent. Unlike much contemporary, rational art that represents predetermined ideas or concepts existing outside the object, Alcaraz is dedicated to the process of creating without intention. His poetic, reverent work explores the notion that once something is named, it begins to disappear. This act automatically limits the object's success to only its ability to achieve the definition of this thing rather than its ability to be something wholey new.
