Javier Lozano is a talented draftsman and graphic designer. He taught at the IED in Madrid until 2020. In his first exhibition at the Crystal Ball gallery, however, the focus of his work is painting. Lozano, whose extraordinarily reduced style masterfully balances ironic connotation with pleasurable strokes, is showing a selection of new watercolors under the title “Antibodies.” Accurately applied gestural strokes and sensitively applied areas of color characterize these works. Lozano’s luscious art always seems to sound out just how much is needed to create a presence, a being. A few fine strokes, a reddish color surface set off against a darker brown one, and he already creates the cheek, the look of a being. Interacting with others or playing with themselves, they become bodies of his spherical images that shine with an ambivalence equal parts romantic and ironic. Javier Lozano’s works are mysterious, as irritatingly certain in their assertion of reductiveness as they are imbued with lightness. This ambivalence therefore makes them very lively.
