Alejandro Quincoces

Born in 1951 - Spain


Native from Bilbao in Spain, Alejandro Quincoces (b 1951) is more than a simple painter of “enigmatic townscapes”.

After an abstract period, Alejandro Quincoces falls into a more objective and referenced painting. But if we have to define its paintings, it is necessary to perceive a tension between “the impressionism and the expressionism”, in where the materials is playing a fundamental subject. His paintings and graphite plans show to us, a place in which any specific place is exceeded, and in which we can feel a psychological sense in this abstract and expressive work.

His saturated colors, the contrast between the form and the elasticity of its work throw us to in a urban ground, in where we can even roam and remind some desires and adversities…Beyond the motive, the most essential matter for Alejandro Quincoces is the physical act to paint. A strong report is established between him and its paintings.

The importance of lighting effects and the touch reflect some major elements in his work. Generally, the central item of its work deals with the common reality. The artist is concentrating with his work around three specific items: estuaries, freeways and townscapes. The idea of “timeless” which means the time that doesn’t exist” guides him to build some paintings beyond the limit of time.
