In recent years, the contemporary art scene has witnessed a resurgence of figurative expression as a predominant aesthetic. Like all artistic trends, this too experiences cycles of popularity. In this context, Elena Gual, observing the proliferation of figuration everywhere, has sought to give her approach a unique character, incorporating certain elements of abstraction and creating works such as her “faceless” portraits.
Instead of settling for mere abstraction or figuration as a means of expression, Elena Gual has developed a distinctive artistic language that seamlessly merges the figurative and the abstract. Her works present recognizable forms and characters that, while maintaining a certain ambiguity, allow us to connect with them on a deep emotional level.
Elena Gual’s expressive language is based on a careful combination of colors, textures, and techniques. Using bold brushstrokes and the palette knife as a tool, she creates layers of paint that convey a sense of depth and movement. Through the overlaying of tones, she achieves a chromatic and visual richness that evokes a wide range of emotions in the viewer.
What is fascinating about Elena Gual’s work lies in her ability to communicate the essence of the human experience through this fusion of the figurative and the abstract. Her paintings capture fleeting moments and emotional states, inviting the viewer to reflect and connect with the complexities of life and human emotions.
With each brushstroke and gesture, Elena Gual guides us through a visual and emotional journey, inviting us to explore and discover the depth of her expressive language. Her ability to communicate the ineffable and evoke emotional responses in the viewer is what truly makes her work unique and meaningful.
