Artist Spotlight: Guim Tió

A selection of recent paintings by Barcelona-based artist Guim Tió (previously featured here). In her reflective essay, “Big Space, Little Person,” American author Lionel Shriver describes her adventurous 28 year-old self from the perspective of a now “far less inclined” 63 and, in doing so, perfectly pinpoints the strange affinity Tió’s work tends to evoke:

“I look at Guim Tió’s paintings, their daunting immensities, their empty planes, their stoic mountain ranges, their wide oblivious horizons, and I point to the tiny, powerless, insignificant figure barely visible on a broad, heedless canvas, and I think: that’s me.”
