    Contemporary Spanish abstract artist Lucio Munoz is best known for his mesmerizing "pseudo-paintings," works that create a bridge between the genres of sculpture and painting. Munoz draws attention to the three dimensionality of his work by altering and manipulating his canvases using carved, burned, and painted pieces of wood, while flipping the sculptural ideal on its head by displaying his work on the wall in the same fashion as a painting.
  • Condition: One small (approx. 1/8 in.) area of paint loss in upper left quadrant, otherwise good condition.Could do with a dusting.
