Un­ti­tled is a paint­ing from An­to­nio Mu­rado’s 2014 solo ex­hi­bi­tion with Gow Langs­ford. Born in 1964 in the prov­ince of Lugo in Gali­cian Spain, An­to­nio Mu­rado cur­rently lives in New York City. Shown in­ter­na­tion­ally in mul­ti­ple solo and group ex­hi­bi­tions around the world, Mu­rado’s paint­ings are now held in prom­i­nent mu­seum, cor­po­rate, and pri­vate col­lec­tions in­clud­ing The Gali­cian Cen­ter of Con­tem­po­rary Art, San­ti­ago de Compostela, Spain; The Mu­seum of Fine Art, Vi­to­ria, Spain; The Na­gasaki Art Mu­seum, Ja­pan; and in Col­lec­tions of Phillip Mor­ris, Amer­i­can Ex­press, Chase Man­hat­tan Bank, AXA, Pfizer, and The Coca-cola Cor­po­ra­tion. Mu­rado ex­panded on tech­niques and themes from his 2012 ex­hi­bi­tion By the Stream. Os­cil­lat­ing be­tween ab­strac­tion and rep­re­sen­ta­tion, Mu­rado creates con­di­tions un­der which ma­te­ri­als are made to per­form and re­act. Re­ly­ing on the chem­i­cal na­ture of his cho­sen ma­te­ri­als, el­e­ments are put down in lay­ers and then sub­se­quently worked on with un­usual tech­niques. A tur­pen­tine-soaked brush will touch over thick paint, al­low­ing an el­e­ment of chance to un­fold on the sur­face, which is then re-worked and man­aged. There is an in­tu­itive process of ob­ser­va­tion that guides what to add, what to re­move and what re­mains. Di­luted pig­ment is blown to form del­i­cate petals which seem to glide across the works. Land­scape plays an im­por­tant role in New Works. Mu­rado’s in­ter­est in land­scape here is an in­ter­est in its con­nec­tion with his­tory, as the con­text in which his­to­ries oc­cur. His can­vases are treated like land­scapes, leav­ing marks, sim­i­lar to the way one leaves marks in their en­vi­ron­ment. Mu­rado has been rep­re­sented by Gow Langs­ford Gallery since 1997.
