The exhibition, “Curved”, surveys Leo Valledor’s career-long interest in curvilinear and circular shapes as well as multi-component canvases. The artworks span from the 1950s through the 60s, 70s and 80s. Aesthetically, the presentation includes Valledor’s early expressionist abstract paintings and signature reductive and minimalist compositions with an emphasis on his later hard edge and color-based abstractions from the 1970s and 80s. The latter include illusory and optical constructs exploring space and creating a tension between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds.
