One of the most prominent mid-career abstract painters working today, Augusto Albor has created a visual language characterized with spare forms and subdued instances of color, whose juxtaposition creates a world that is almost Zen-like in its purity and contemplative spirit. This work, Woman, embodies the artist’s style, all the while gesturing at a female form who seems to be looking at a mirror that repeats her. While her silhouette is evident, Albor’s approach is still essentially abstract, and the added element of a series of horizontal lines further confounds the nature of the form. In a sense, Albor has reintroduced the essential mystery of a woman, all the while opening up the possibilities of how her story may be imagined.
