ARTIST TO REFERENCE: Albert Guasch - Surrealist and Abstract Painter. Albert Guasch understands painting as a catch-go hosting small personal reflections, a place where the scattered and confusing struggle to find some kind of order and meaning. For him, painting is merely a way of trying to understand their environment and imagine the future. His work is at an intermediate point between the absurd, the fantastic, the ritual and dramatic.
