Pilar Carballido and Josie Watson at MACLA
Exhibition of paintings by visual artists Pilar Carballido and Josie Watson who present their work jointly in room 8 of the MACLA.
Carballido’s work moves through geometric abstraction in which representative features can be recognized. In Watson’s work, realistic painting fades into forms that give relevance to the figure, the basis of its expression.
