Echo of the Masters is a solo exhibition by the Spanish Contemporary artist Lita Cabellut, showcasing a new series of large-scale canvas works that have never been exhibited before.
Executed in her signature technique of combining traditional fresco techniques and Modern applications of oil paint, Cabellut awakens the senses with harmonious colours, mesmerising brushwork and the crackle of texture. In this unique collection of work, Cabellut pays tribute to the Modern Masters of the art world who inspired her, and honours their individual ingenuity. From Van Gogh to Warhol, from Klimt to Léger, the voices of legendary artists resonate through the imagery of Cabellut. Reinvigorated through her visionary figurative paintings, she has seamlessly interwoven both past and present into her practice.
As she depicts herself, Lita Cabellut is not a simple Contemporary portraitist but a “story-teller”. Considered an ‘‘informal figurative painter’’, she paints from memory, her characters are echoes of Cabellut’s hometown, reminders of her life.
