Description

Tepescuintle an abstract rodent painting by Carlos Fernández.

Carlos Fernández’s Abstract Rodent Painting called Tepescuintle where the natural beauty of Santa Ana, San José, finds expression on canvas. Inspired by the rugged terrain surrounding his mountain sanctuary, Fernández infuses his artwork with elements sourced directly from his farm. Influenced by the works of Julie Mehretu, Francis Alys, and Joseph Beuys, Fernández embraces a symbiotic relationship between art and nature.

Utilizing a unique blend of acrylic paint and organic materials like soil, beeswax, and turmeric, Fernández creates a captivating interplay of textures and tones. The clay-rich hills near his farm provide a rich palette of natural hues, from soft whites to earthy greys and peachy reds. In his black pieces, Fernández employs black soil, enhancing its depth with subtle touches of pigment.

Embracing the ethos that “pigment is food,” Fernández incorporates spices like turmeric and achiote directly onto the canvas, infusing his work with vibrant color and sensory richness. Each piece is born from a meticulous process of observation and exploration, reflecting Fernández’s deep connection to his environment. From painting and drawing exercises to photography and performance art, Fernández’s creative journey mirrors the organic growth of a garden, rooted in the landscapes that inspire him.
