Cargo Project Gallery opens its second exhibition with the intimate and burlesque paintings of Almudena Caminero.
With a style that merges the loneliness and isolation we find in Edward Hopper’s characters, and spaces and the theatrical and freaky aesthetic of David Lynch, Almudena Caminero presents us with a painting exhibition that explores the sideshow offstage intimate moments.
Almudena Caminero has always been fascinating by storytelling, and it is there where she has always found her inspiration. In each painting, she usually starts with a story, a tale, or a song I hear. It this way that the Spanish artist creates her “narrative paintings,” pictures that look like they have been taken from a movie strip, where we can feel a particular atmosphere, and a rich background story of the characters she portraits. She invited the spectator to be the one to interpret the details, to put together these pieces, and finish the story.
