Conduit Gallery presents "Algo Queda (Something Remains)," a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Dallas-based artist, Roberto Munguia.

In his newest body of work, Munguia approaches the making and viewing of his paintings as a holistic and unified experience by referring to it as “Algo Queda (Something Remains).” The processes Munguia employs in his non-objective paintings is a process he developed in the studio in 2012, approaching abstraction from an intuitive and experimental position.

The exhibition is composed of two distinct outputs, stark black and white graphite crystalline compositions and vibrant bulbous high chroma collaged paintings. In the liquid graphite drawings, a structure is established through the movement of the artist’s hand, not dictated by a preconceived architecture, but through being attuned to an inner rhythm and cadence.

With the color works, there is an entirely different approach. Liquid acrylic is poured and directed to create fluid lava pools of color. These are then dried and cut into irregularly shaped collage paintings that burst off the surface. There is an interesting tension between the muscular graphite drawing and the energetic rush of the undiluted, un-contained color cutouts. This is an exhibition that describes harmony of soul and commitment to process.

The exhibition will remain on display through May 6.
