Francisco Ugarte “Three Lines, One Square”

Francisco Ugarte is a Mexican artist based in Guadalajara.

His solo exhibition Three Lines, One Square is at Cristin Tierney New York June 1 – July 7, 2017.

These paintings look like simple minimalist brushworks with an Asian flavor. They are actually finely detailed paintings of acrylic brushworks. Ugarte seems to have taken the still lifes of Claudio Bravo to a minimalist extreme.
