Alzueta Gallery Madrid
Having cultivated over the years a very specific approach to art in our hometown Barcelona, we were eager to present the work by our artists in an effervescent Contemporary Art Scene such as the one in Madrid.
Located in Madrid’s Justicia neighbourhood, our space in the Spanish’s capital is bright and very well located, close to the Salesas Convent, a Baroque exquisite building founded by Queen Bárbara de Braganza. This emblematic neighbourhood has become the city’s centre of art, crafts and design.
We already had a history with Madrid, participating in Art Fairs in the city every year since the very beginning of our gallery. However, we wanted to fully commit to the city, to be among the builders and shapers of its artistic scene.
Opened since September 2021, with the mission of embodying a collective impression, our gallery shows the works by the artists of diverse nationalities who portrait a variety of ideas, inviting them to converge with Madrid’s Art Scene. Committed to represent the aesthetics in dialogue with creativity and modernity, our gallery in Madrid exhibits almost monthly a new show in its space, from Solo to Group shows. Maintaining at the same time a meticulous selection of artists and artworks, the space has reached to create a truly artistic oasis in the center of Madrid.
Fruit of an intuitive and playful collision between memories, ideas and associations Gabrielle Graessle brings her vibrant imagery to Alzueta Gallery Madrid under the title «CARAMBOLE». In the first instance the title refers to the French, pocketless, billiard tables that play a part in the artist’s leisure time, yet interestingly enough, in Spanish ‘carambola’ means something like ‘a lucky shot’, a coincidence.
In preparation for her upcoming exhibition, Gabrielle has meticulously selected a collection of artworks that evoke a sense of intrigue and allure. The relationship with her own practice is characterized by an ever-evolving appreciation for different works at different stages of her artistic journey. While she does not discard any of her works, her process involves a discerning approach to selecting paintings for exhibition and public display. This selection process is informed by her evolving artistic vision and the ongoing dialogue between her past and present works.
What it can evoke in the viewer is back to ‘carambole’; a connection, a ‘coup de foudre’… an impact between two bodies, promising an encounter that will leave no room for indifference.
