A solo exhibition by Bárbara Alegre (b. 1976, Barcelona) from 11-22 May, during London Gallery Weekend.


We are honoured to present Dancing in the Sky, Waiting for the Sunset, the first UK solo exhibition by Spanish artist Bárbara Alegre (b. 1976).

The artist shares an intimate and deeply personal body of work created over a period of more than a year following the loss of her parents in 2020.

For this series of paintings, predominately works on paper, Alegre used the make-up and brushes her mother left behind. What started initially as an attempt to keep her close and a way to process the unassimilable void, gradually evolved into a symbolic exploration of what "makes up" who we are, our beliefs, and the links to the world around us. 

Alegre approaches the subject with authenticity and grace, making no demands for resolution or redemption. Following a path through grief, loss, love, acceptance and hope, this poignant body of work is a celebration of life, affirming an all-encompassing sense of connection, gratitude, presence and belonging; a tribute to those who walked before us, those who walk beside us and, ultimately, ourselves.
