Emerson Dorsch Gallery is pleased to announce our participation in the 15th edition of SWAB Barcelona. In line with SWAB’s mission of promoting emerging artists, Emerson Dorsch will present new works by Ernesto Gutiérrez Moya.

Ernesto Gutiérrez Moya is a Miami-based artist whose drawings and paintings are characterized by enigmatic landscapes. There are no people present in his works; instead, his focus lies in the search for a connection created through compositional lines––abstract structures are often housed among mystical lush gardens and forests in his paintings. Gutiérrez Moya’s palette is made up of bold colors used in a mysterious manner, sometimes assigning colors to objects to which they don’t belong. This reinforces the ambiguous quality of his narrative. He is influenced by imagery found in art, books, film, and nature, and he uses forms that stem from a real foundation to construct spaces that are at the same time familiar and otherworldly.


Swab is the contemporary art fair of Barcelona, an independent project that was born in 2006 as an experimental platform for emerging artistic proposals.

Founded by architect and collector Joaquín Diez-Cascón, Swab is an event that brings together up to 80 galleries from the international scene and functions as a meeting point for the cultural sector on a global scale.

With 14 editions under its belt, the fair faces 2022 while maintaining its mission of supporting the spaces and disciplines that are changing the course of the art scene. This edition will take place from October 6 to 9, 2022.
