Vidal Toreyo – NEW MUTATIONS – abstract expressionism

NEW MUTATIONS – series of abstract artworks

Vidal Toreyo paints dynamic canvases, going beyond the conventions of the art of Abstract Expressionism. Images from the NEW MUTATIONS series are a double mutation. In the process of painting, they change from the initial random form in the direction designed by the artist. Vidal adds more elements and more layers. 

The viewed images from the series NEW MUTATIONS change depending on the viewing angle. Metallic surfaces, structures on canvas – they mutate when viewed from different perspectives. This is the result of the materials used and the effects of light reflection on glossy and textured surfaces. Vidal Toreyo amuses us with mutations, showing that everything around us is constantly changing. In this way, the artist presents a unique approach to Abstract Expressionism.

Characteristic feature of Abstract Expressionism

Vidal paints in the style of Abstract Expressionism. A characteristic feature is presenting the world only from a subjective perspective, radically distorting it. In this way, the artist achieves emotional effects to evoke moods or ideas.

Vidal’s works evolved in a continuous process from expressive representations heavily dependent on primitive art to a new aesthetics of creating images of Abstract Expressionism. The effects of depth are achieved through a variety of textures that give an almost sculptural form. It focuses on transformation and combining traditional and modern techniques, combining action images with a bold calligraphy style. New mutations are highly physical, joyful, and abstract.

Images from the series NEW MUTATIONS by Vidal Toreyo are associated with a drastic change involving a radical reorientation of the most important aspects. The artist presents an abstract subject and freely manipulates it in an open formula. In her abstract paintings it is a break with the sense of reality as we generally perceive it.
