Alejandro Ceballos’ colorful abstractions enlivened THRU Gallery last April
Just one week before the next art opening was supposed to take place, for the gallery that we had just inaugurated only three weeks prior, and we had nobody booked. A chance run-in with Alejandro Ceballos provided the perfect solution to ground us for another month. He arrived at the last minute, last First Thursday, and managed to hang a wonderful collection of works in a matter of minutes.
Alejandro thrives with asymmetry. He teaches you how to relax and just do your best.
The collection consists of two themes: landscapes and food. Intermingled without any obvious reasoning behind it, it takes a discerning eye (or a few weeks of looking at them almost every day) to realize how he grouped the work. Look even closer and you’ll see direct relationships from piece to piece, especially in the landscapes, as if each one is leading to the next.
