Alejandra von Hartz Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition: ”Working Premises”, which will feature new Works by Martín Pelenur (Uruguay, 1977). This is the artist’s first solo show in the United States, and will take place from February 12 to April 2, 2011.

Pelenur defines himself primarily as a painter and as a surfer. He understands painting as a way of thought.

The show is structured around a working premise, in which the grid, the square and the very drying process of paint are researched. Premises are the starting point of the works in which he strives to achieve results that he can repeat. The materials and support are indivisible. Dimensions are variable, and the final set up fixes them in place.
