ARTFORUM SPOTLIGHT discusses Jorge Galindo's show Postcard Paintings which will be on view at PULPO GALLERY from April 19 to May 16, 2021:
"His fascination with postcards, when viewed against the backdrop of social distancing and isolation, brought about by the COVID pandemic, shines a special light on his work. What’s the meaning of postcards in a time where photos and messages are conveyed via social media, oftentimes before the sender even grasps their meaning? Doesn’t a postcard, handwritten and carefully selected, carry new significance, in a time where special occasions cannot be celebrated in the company of others? What do postcards mean when the journeys from which they greet do not take place?"
