Book Launch of Special Limited Edition Monograph and accompanying retrospective exhibition of Catalan artist Ramiro Fernandez Saus.
The book is a compilation of works from the last twenty years with a text written by Andrew Lambirth. This will be comprised of selected paintings, sculptures and prints dating back to early works created while Saus was a young artist, awarded a scholarship at the Delfina Studios in London, and exhibited in his initial exhibition with Long and Ryle in 1990.
The exhibition will feature works that track the evolution of Saus’ career. His early work ‘The Poet’ features the pivotal image of a figure gazing upwards at the stars in a state of contemplation. This pensive image is a visible narrative that runs throughout his work and to his present day paintings. “Not at all naïve, [Saus] is a deeply sophisticated artist who enjoins us to revel in his paintings and be happy, for through happiness do we understand the world better” (Andrew Lambirth).
