Seller: Modern Decorative Art


The kaleidoscopic colours of this mesmerising painting instantly capture the viewer, making it hard to look away. These beastly bird-like creatures, reminiscent of the work of the Martin Brothers, are feasting on pieces of fruit with their bony hands – an ingenious use of anthropomorphism to explore our unconditioned nature. Teeming with visceral, distorted imagery, Márquez Alcalá has skilfully orchestrated a surreal scene which we cannot keep our eyes off, and don’t want to – in order to expose the innermost physical desires of humans.

Jose Márquez Alcalá, born in 1937, is a Spanish postwar and contemporary artist whose works have sold internationally at auction. His highly evocative and expressive style is showcased in this piece to an outstanding standard – this is a true masterpiece, not to be missed.
