Achromatic Materialization is the exhibition title of Enrique Leal’s photo-based lithographs and silkscreens print series inaugurated in conjunction with the ‘aceNITE event at Fundación ‘ace on August 12th which was exhibited until September 4th, 2015. The title refers to the unique perceptual qualities associated with white phenomena and objects that Leal had chosen to work with, ranging from sensed textured materiality of a starfish to the fugitive ephemerality of cumulus clouds.
Through technical experimentation such as rasterization of image; inverting values of image on a matrix, ink and paper and printing on treated surfaces, Leal has sought the possibilities of immersive contemplation. Cloud images resulted as an ideal conceptual vehicle. The cloud is nothing more than something in constant motion and formation, a whole constituted by infinite particles in transient states.
