About

Spanish artist Lino Lago questions in his works the sacredness of classical painting with a great dose of humour and irony through an excellent pictorial technique. He plays peek-a-boo with viewer’s imaginations in his series Fake Abstract where he reveals glimpses of classical portraits with a single stroke. Lago treats us to snippets of a portrait through squiggles across monochrome canvases, similar to a finger dragged across a foggy glass. The audience is left to wonder if a full Renaissance-like painting actually exists underneath the solid block of colour, or if the artist deliberately painted small portions of a portrait on the small surface. In any case, the eye-catching series lets us indulge in the juxtaposition of contemporary and classic art.
