The artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States in nearly a decade, features two distinct series: white textural paintings, and dark portraits painted with bleach, chalk, and charcoal...Barceló uses bleach, chalk, and charcoal on canvases of dark linen, cotton and velvet in a second series of paintings depicting distorted portraits of the artist’s family and friends. These ghostly images evoke spectrographs of the late nineteenth century, in which spiritualists hoped to document paranormal phenomena by using new technology that revealed what was invisible to the naked eye.
