Please join us as we unveil the new collection “Blancos” from the artist Royo.

Royo - Blancos
July 31, 2010 (Sat.)

On July 31, 2010, Brilliance In Color Gallery will open "Blancos" (Whites), an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Spanish figurative painter, Royo. This exhibition comprises new oil paintings on canvas together with a selection of drawings, bronze sculptures and serigraphs. Royo has passionately and wholeheartedly dedicated the last 30 years of his career to the same subject matter: the female form. He is inspired by many historical periods from the Old Masters, such as Velazquez and Goya, to the 19th-century Impressionists, such as Sorolla. This new collection of paintings combines formal elements with a subtlety of the contemporary master’s eye. In this collection of Royo's paintings, subjects are depicted by a vast range of different whites, applied with a broken-color technique used to create a dramatic light across the painting. The “whites are composed of a thousand whites”, as Royo notes.
