Astúries, 15Barcelona April, 2013
For Astúries 15, two artists showed recent work in a private residence in Barcelona. Blanca Haddad and Mike Swaney exhibited pieces that explored the effect of the urban space upon its inhabitants.
The subjects in Blanca Haddad's paintings both invite us to identify with them as well as challenge us to judge them. For Astúries 15, Blanca showed a series of work that develops her narrative style through portraiture.
Mike Swaney's practice is based around observations of the actions and daily habits of others, focusing on the absurd rituals that permeate urban existence. For this exhibition Mike presented a series of portraits and abstract collage on paper, as well as some studies for imagined performances.
This show was possible thanks to the generosity of Blanca Haddad.
