    Albert Ruiz Villar: The Platforms

Art: A. Ruiz Villar's collages fall halfway between geometric pattern and collage

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Albert Ruiz Villar’s collages combine found objects, graphic shapes and soft muted colours in a sweet assemblage which relies on an absence of technique, structure or material. Sound a bit disordered? Maybe, but that seems to be part of its charm. Using accident as a means by which to create effect, the artist’s practice becomes something like topography, mapping out segments and scraps of paper to mirror the creative process. And the resulting images are really lovely – a great half-way point between geometric patterns and collage which few artists are able to execute as well as this fellow.
