In one sense this is a great strength; Albor’s paintings are secure from incorporation in any movement or tendency towards "design". Albor freed painting from all imitative or conventional contexts. The viewer becomes sensitive to its intrinsic qualities and unencumbered with preconceptions.
Of particular interest is the textural treatment in some areas of the work in which the gray is superimposed with rust like incrustations that connote decay and the irreversible action of time and the elements. It also results in an increased visual “feeling” of rawness.
