The painter in the woods 

Agustín Ibarrola 

11.05.2024 – end of July

The painter in the woods is the first solo exhibition at the gallery of the artist Agustín Ibarrola (Basauri, 1930 – Galdakao, 2023). The exhibition evokes the artist’s creative universe in nature through pieces that reflect Ibarrola’s artistic maturity and his deep connection with nature, particularly with the woods that we recognize as a symbol of return to the origin.

Everything that happened in Ibarrola’s life, fundamentally his commitment to painting, to creation, remains in some way in the Bosque de Oma, and therefore in the pieces that make up this exhibition. The trees, the stones, the sleepers and the paintings present a single language: the study of painting as a constant.
