Anya Tish Gallery is delighted to announce Monólogo, the highly anticipated solo exhibition of new work by Johan Barrios, a Colombian artist now living and working in Houston.

About

Johan Barrios, born in 1982, is one of the most technically accomplished painters of his generation. Barrios' work provokes the unique ability to makel and sympathize with his images invoking a harmony of the imagination and cognitive thought. Using himself as his own model, Barrios creates psychological portraits full of contradictions, doubt, beauty and anxiety, that exist between the surface of the canvas and trompe l’oeil illusion. He effortlessly translates light and shadow, executing his pieces with the proficiency of old masters. Depicted in a state of suspended tension, the subject has no identity, no narrative, no location, yet carries a diffused emotional resonance that adresses existential issues, such as lonliness, self-discovery, intimacy, and fragility.
