González s minimal paintings have historically juxtaposed chaos and order, movement and static, or depth and flatness. For this new series, González states that his “source of inspiration has been the night sky, those images of deep space that we can witness thanks to the most advanced telescopes. What I have tried to do is to see those images through the lens of my working process.”

Inspired by the image of the night sky, González paints the background a mix of shades of dark blue. The foreground of the painting demonstrates the significant role that drawing plays in this series. Using paint instead of ink, González methodically draws thousands of white dots onto the canvas. Playing with the variation of the size, density, and placement of forms enables organic rhythms to emerge. González also introduces a new element in this series, which is an ethereal, gradated layer of white paint creating an illusionistic effect that implies greater depth. González s reductive paintings are infused with movement and dimension resulting in work that is vibrant, dynamic and utterly captivating.

Teo González was born in Zaragoza, Spain in 1964. He received his BFA from California State University, Bakersfield, and currently lives in New York City. His work can be found in the public collections of the Achenbach Foundation at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, New York, the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. and the San Diego Museum of Art. This is González s ninth solo show with Brian Gross Fine Art.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
