Spanish contemporary art worldwide
8 november – 10 december, 2017
Jesus Chamizo is an established Spanish photographer best known for his architecture series. He builds images based on the emotions that space produces through lines, angles, light, perspectives and shapes.This exhibition consists of 12 photographs capturing the constructions of the Spanish architect Antonio Palacios who created the most emblematic buildings in Madrid and transformed the city into a modern capital during the early 20th Century.
The eclectic style of the architect Antonio Palacios, who combined elements from the Plateresco, The Vienna Secession and the School of Chicago is what really attracts the photographer. Chamizo enhances and transforms these architectural elements into different compositions where buildings are shown in a non-conventional way, thus transforming him into an architect of images. (I.
