It is a surprise that it has taken this long for the UK to have an exhibition of Bustemante's reputation. This exhibition is taking place at Fruitmarket in Edinburgh, until 3rd April and then at Henry Moore Institute in Leeds, Yorkshire. This is a diverse selection of his work, with for me the most interesting works transferred to silkscreen and printed on perspex to explore an atmospheric painterly quality. there are also the architectural sculptures. We in the Abstraktion office are particularly interested in his abstractions..
