Just Beyond Reality
November 16- December 15, 2018
Dramatically striding a line between abstraction and figuration, Eskubi’s lone objects/figures traverse exquisite ground and converse with centuries of historical painting in their light and tone, their pathos and surreality. Eskubi is an artist whose imagery is highly evocative whilst never quite becoming the things it evokes.
Joseba Eskubi (b. 1967) lives and works in Bilbao, Spain, where he teaches painting at the Academy of Fine Arts (University of the Basque Country). He paints in an attic studio near Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum, producing his distinctive oil paintings on paper linen and canvas. He has shown extensively across Europe and the US and is currently included in an important group exhibition in St. Petersburg Russia. His work was presented at Volta NY 2017 by Knight Webb Gallery of Brixton UK.
