Modest Almirall

Josep Ma Cadena · El Periódico de Catalunya · 24 June 1997

Coming from the world of ceramics, enamelling and jewellery, Modest Almirall (Barcelona, 1959) has set out on the path of painting well-equipped in terms of his knowledge of composition and the treatment of materials. The field is broad but the access is narrow, but this exhibition, his first contribution to the plastic arts, on display in Barcelona, offers freshness and sincerity in his representation of the doubts that assail him. But doubt is not a mere refuge, rather it confers on his work the necessary plasticity and breadth. This is worth taking a look at.
