about the artist's works
Cristina Alabau intermingles the natural and the abstract, the Mediterranean light takes on the greatest protagonist. This artist uses a language of more poetic abstraction, her works delve into the most intimate emotions and thoughts. Her creative impulse is nourished by different materials and techniques. Painting, collage, watercolour, drawing or sculpture have a place in the evolution of her work. In watercolour, its forms become more agile capturing fluid and free perspectives. Her works show intimate iconographies, enigmatic poetic and suggestive forms that define their own universes. In her large canvases, with clear backgrounds, we find three concepts that are always repeated in each of them: man, nature and time. Her sculptures in Murano glass have become her great allies in her last exhibitions. White pieces, translucent and fragile, contain colours and materials in their essence that seem to claim the importance of the subtle.
