I paint in order to seek a space, and in this process the painting is integrated into structures simply to show the colour - colour, nothing else. But that colour always extends over a surface, which no longer has to be flat, and 'that' which happens between the colour and the surface is what for me takes on an essential relevance. That halo that seems to go beyond the support and project itself over some other place.

I am sure that is what painting is, and also that it is not anymore.

-- Irene Grau

Irene Grau (Valencia, 1986). Lives and works in Valencia.
" She develops her work from relationships between color and space. Focusing on minimal elements of painting as the plane, the color and the support, looking for connections with the environment from two-dimensional chromatic objects that finally are unfolded and projected beyond the surface. Her interest in the context in which the painting is experienced leads her to include architecture and landscape, not as background but as a field that activates the chromatic space. And painting is articulated from the void, from the vibrating space between the different surfaces of color. The permeability of large sheets of transparent color or monochrome stretcher is constituted as a characteristic element of some of her recent series. Her work has been presented in various exhibitions, national and international, highlighting: VOLTA10 with Ponce+Robles, “Los ojos de las Vacas” curated by David Barro at Galería Ponce+Robles, Madrid (2014) “Idolatria Va” Galeria Laura Marsiaj, Rio de Janeiro (2013), “In medias res” Palau Ducal dels Borja, Gandia (2013), “Mutatis mutandis” Galeria Moura Marsiaj, Sao Paulo (2012), “El paso del noroeste” Galería I Leonarte, Valencia (2012), “Irene Grau / Pierre Fischer / Katrin Zuzacova” Michele Balmelli
Gallery, Belinzona (2010) or “Grau / Roberston / Widmer” Gallery Ratus Casty, Davos (2009). "
