Also for frieze, Max Andrews reviewed two concurrent exhibitions by Pere Llobera: Acció’ at Bombon Projects (Barcelona) and ‘Kill Your Darlings’ at Sis Galería (in nearby Sabadell), ‘exploring the artist’s ever-changing styles and painterly references.’ Published online on 13 November 2018, and included in January-February 2019 print issue #200.

“As if tormented by his own cursed hand, Llobera’s darkly fugitive shtick is his alarm at its ability to paint so adeptly so easily, despite his mind’s suspicion of painters painting to be admired.”
