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.
Hover on the Edge of Sleep
We are delighted to announce Daniel Jensen’s first solo exhibition in Madrid.
The show brings together 13 artworks on canvas, gathered under the concept of Hypnagogia. The title Hover on the Edge of Sleep is a direct reference to the homonymous dream state, which is the moment of transition from wakefulness to sleep.
In this phase, phenomena such as lucid dreaming, sleep paralysis and chromatic hallucinations appear. Among the most common sensory features are phosphenes, which may manifest as apparently random, monochromatic or richly colored dots, lines or geometric patterns. They are said to differ from dreams proper in that hypnagogic images are usually dynamic, without narrative content.
