OHWOW Gallery is pleased to announce Aqua Regia, Luis Gispert’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, presenting a series of two-dimensional works, each comprised of quasi-asphalt slabs embedded with varied strands of gold chain. Concepts surrounding American culture and the fetishization of value have inspired the artist’s work over the years, and those interests continue to serve as the basis from which all his ideas evolve. Regardless of the visual vehicle used to interpret his acumen, Gispert’s sensibility is always palpable.

The work presented in Aqua Regia translates through visual and tactile methods. Densely black planks appear interrupted by channels of delicately metallic line in a nonobjective abstract manner. Arriving at a closer proximity, these works of expressionistic gesture disclose to the viewer: they confess not to be minimalist paintings, as Gispert’s panels reveal a particular style of line. Each piece serves as a sample of analysis, identifying marks associated directly to this artist’s hand.
