Albor’s art is aggressively raw in depicting a lack or absence of form itself — and not a simple reduction of formality or formalness. Albor thrives on the absence of premeditated structure, conception or approach than a mere casual, loosened or relaxed abstraction. There is an uncompromising aggressiveness in his sense of meditative emptiness.
This style was characterized by the use of neutral colors that are similar in tone or intensity, as well as large formats and simplified compositions.
