Alvar Suñol- Living Legacies at R. Alexander Fine Art

Posted by ralexanderfineart


Alvar’s appeal to large audiences stems from his ability to harmonize recognizable everyday objects with mythology and spirituality, thus creating scenes that both analyze the world around us while offering a sense of otherworldliness. Important in Alvar’s themes is the human experience, and the idea that despite diversities such as ethnicity, culture, age, or religion, all living beings are affected by the passage of time. He frequently uses symbolism throughout his works to communicate these messages to his audience, and common motifs include female muses to signify inspiration and maternity, Mediterranean villages to represent culture and community, and computers to symbolize contemporary culture. Living Legacies traces the evolution of Alvar’s aesthetic styles, media, and narratives by exhibiting a variety of examples from particularly notable artworks in his portfolio.
