Carlos Fernández’s abstract leaf painting called Cortos en Paisaje

Enter the world of Carlos Fernández’s Abstract Leaf Painting called Crotos en Paisaje, a captivating exploration of nature’s raw beauty. Nestled amidst the mountains of Santa Ana, San José, Fernández finds inspiration in the bucolic landscapes that surround him. His artistic process is deeply intertwined with the land, as he draws upon the bounty of his farm to create his distinctive acrylic works.

Influenced by luminaries such as Julie Mehretu, Francis Alys, and Joseph Beuys, Fernández seamlessly integrates natural elements like soil, beeswax, and turmeric into his paintings. The hills of Santa Ana yield rich layers of clay, a material Fernández expertly blends with acrylic paint in a unique ratio, resulting in a spectrum of earthy hues.

Each painting is a testament to Fernández’s meticulous craftsmanship, as he carefully applies spices like turmeric and achiote to the canvas, embracing the philosophy that “pigment is food.” The result is a vibrant tapestry of color and texture, reminiscent of the rich landscapes that surround him.

For Fernández, art is a deeply contextual practice, rooted in a process akin to tending a garden. He begins with rigorous observation and analysis of his environment, translating his findings into a series of painting exercises before bringing his vision to life on canvas. Embrace the organic beauty of Carlos Fernández’s Abstract Leaf Painting, where each stroke tells a story of harmony between art and nature.
