The Fernando Pradilla Gallery presents the third solo exhibition of Spanish artist Carlos Leon (Ceuta, 1948). The project, entitled Encender brings together a series of recent works with wood as a support, a surface whose plastic possibilities he has been investigating since 2019 after leaving behind almost twenty years of a career dedicated to experimenting with oil on dibond. The return to acrylic, spread on wood with his hands or brush, allows León to create complex chromatic compositions, characterized by a pictorial calligraphy in which the imprint of his body on the surface continues to be the protagonist element of these new medium and large format paintings.
