Fresh off a vibrant exhibition of flower paintings that ran for a year at the Hall Art Foundation at Schloss Derneberg in Germany, which included a playful collaboration with celebrated filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, Spanish painter Jorge Galindo is back in New York to make his solo show debut with “Verbena” at Vito Schnabel Gallery. The subject of a two-person exhibition alongside Julian Schnabel at the gallery last year, the seasoned artist returns with a new series of monumental floral canvases that show off his expressive use of color and gestural brushwork. Framed on the surface of the paintings by cut and collaged antique wallpapers, culled from the flea markets in his Madrid hometown, Galindo’s new canvases further his lively style of “dirty pop” in the realm of the still life, a genre that the artist has been exploring abstractly for years.
