Do not miss the Biennale de Lyon with Eva Fabregas!

In spite of the formal precision of his painting, the conceptual weight of Pere Llobera’s work has always been one of the chief traits of his painting. A meta-referential analysis of his craft focused as much on the dysfunctionality of the pictorial activity as on its power to liberate. A useless and euphoric power – conveying everything that exists onto canvas is wonderful, but it is of no use – that turns the painter into a survivor who cannot help himself and must go on painting.
