Salustiano: A Dream of Self

27 February - 19 April 2020

Pontone Gallery presents an exclusive selection of figurative paintings and drawings by acclaimed Spanish artist, Salustiano. These closely-observed and carefully-recorded studies of young models propose a particular ideal of male and female attractiveness.

The subjects’ groomed and sleekly-edited poses speak of autonomy and self regard. They contrive a deliberately-seductive image, which is both attractive and unsettling.
