Chartwell Notes

1976-27 (Cross Section) and 1982-34 were exhibited in Crossings at Tim Melville gallery in 2014. This exhibition showcased a series of rarely-seen objects that establish points of attention, interaction, and conflict through wooden and painted constructions. These works offer up many allusions; the symbol of the cross, the turning hands of a clock, or abstracted figurines. Both wall-mounted sculptures and three-dimensional relief paintings, the works in Crossings showcased Alberto’s ongoing exploration into the many possibilities available through these abstracted and traversing linear works.
