"El río y el paisaje"

Francisco Carpio

In the last exhibition by Marus Linnenbrink at the Ana Serratosa gallery, "The river and landscape", "colour is, then, practically the great guest of honour to the party of all his works." A chromatic party in which they speak, they laugh, communicate and sometimes even shout, the greens, oranges, pinks, blues, reds, yellows, violets ... "as the curator of the exhibition Francisco Carpio tells us. The painting or sculpture of Markus Linnenbrink has much of the expressionist artist Jackson Pollock. It is inevitable that we will pay attention to the analogies between both works, but what characterizes and differentiates Linnenbrink is that this dripping is controlled. Unlike its predecessor, Linnenbrink grants to the line a reduced percentage of the randomness that characterized the drip technique of the American expressionists. Therefore, we are facing a new approach to the movement of abstract expressionism in its most gestural, since it reproduces the principle of this discipline, but denying part of the freedom that had the painting in the early fifties.

THE RIVER AND THE LANDSCAPE

FRANCISCO CARPIO

In the last exhibition by Marus Linnenbrink at the Ana Serratosa Gallery, "El río y el paisaje", color is the great guest of honor at the party of all his works.

 

A chromatic party in which they talk, laugh, communicate and sometimes even shout, green, orange, pink, blue, red, yellow, violet ... as the curator of the exhibition Francisco Carpio tells us.

 

Linnenbrink has much of the expressionist artist Jackson Pollock, it is inevitable that we will notice the analogies between both works, but what characterizes and differentiates Linnenbrink is that this dripping is controlled, unlike his predecessor, Linnenbrink grants to the line a small percentage of the randomness that characterized the drip technique of the American Expressionists.

 

Therefore, we are faced with a new approach to the movement of Abstract Expressionism in its more gestural aspect, since it reproduces the principle of this discipline, but denying it part of the freedom that painting had in the beginning of the fifties.
