Exhibiting Artists

  • Capi Cabrera  (+)

    Detailed Description : The creative processes related to abstraction and non-referential mechanisms allow Capi Cabrera to find a way of expression, a language, a game to search for coherence between pictorial and experiential processes. Concepts such as chance and serendipity are embraced as a method to approach the process; an attempt to get away from the idea of ​​the result as something planned and projected. The trace as gestural extension of the body; the emptiness as a generator of transformations; the brightness and the light; all these features make the process becomes one of the main values ​​for his work, as a result of that creative development. Capi Cabrera´s work balances between the contrast of industrial materials with superficial finishes such as acetate, methacrylate or rubber and the warmth of the gesture and its expression. The use of these materials and the possibility of transformation imply a detachment from the final image of the work. The value and the importance of the processes and the investigation clearly predominates in his work and are for him more important than the final result.

  • Yutaka Mori  (+)

    Biography : Yutaka Mori is a young Japanese artist who has had a successful career in a few years. In the beginning, he starts doing a research on different mediums such as paper, wood or canvas until he immerses himself in creating unique pieces in which, you’re firstly attracted by plastic beauty, but where the artist creates something much more complex converging architecture, painting, sculpture and mathematics. Even though showing his work meant for him total nakedness, Gema Llamazares Gallery convinces him in 2014 to present his pieces to JUSTMAD5 Art Fair’s proposal. From that moment on, his success is so overwhelming that his career takes off in a meteoric manner, including his name among important exhibitions, international art fairs and becoming part of renowned public and private collections.

    Detailed Description : His work is little known, although his creations are conceived with a beautiful delicacy and they are of great aesthetic quality. Having clear Japanese influences, in Yutaka’s work colour is perceived subjectively by the viewer depending on the distance from which the creation is seen. Different levels of paper produce a vision interlaced with colour. His pieces are dynamic and optically pleasing, as well as being charged with a poetic meaning beyond a simple game of perception.

    Explum A

    Detailed Description : The aesthetic —that also have a strong ethical— raised by Avelino Sala throughout his career articulate a discourse certainly personal, coherent, and yet complex in their readings and their looks. The diversity of mechanisms employed and expressive languages, which include among others the video, sculpture, photography, neon, drawing or plural world of objects, keeps his (coherent) idea of art but at the same time complex on the diversity of views. His images, largely appear to us like allegories or metonymies that exemplify the loneliness of the individual, the frailties that are created in your own personal position, and in the interstices while underlying entities in the global discourse history, or flows and also questions about identity and memory that do nothing but affirm its perishability and missed, they belong to some sort of non-place.
