A Gentil Carioca presents TORTO, the first solo exhibiton by artist Rafael Alonso at the gallery.
In his individual exhibition he continues his artistic research of the last few years based on the investigation of possible links between his practice of painting and his daily life.
From a series of banal references, such as dust jackets of books, parking cards, furniture, design objects or fragments of garments the artist creates striking abstract paintings with a very heterogeneous visuality.
The set of works that form the exhibition compose a sort of visual inventory of meetings that took place over the last year, shaped in the form of paintings. The painter acts as a chronicler and his paintings end up reflecting the events of his existence during a specific period of time.
