An intimate scene captured in this Costa Rica oil painting by Adrián Arguedas portrays a young girl seated at the edge of a pool, swimming goggles positioned on her head. Arguedas’ masterful use of oil paints brings to life the subtle nuances of light and shadow.

In this painting, Arguedas invites viewers to contemplate the quiet beauty of everyday life. A suggestion of the girl’s gaze and her relaxed posture evoke a sense of calm and introspection. Arguedas’ work is characterised by its ability to capture fleeting moments with a sense of timelessness, inviting viewers to pause and reflect on the simplicity of existence. This Costa Rica oil painting serves as a testament to the artist’s skill and vision, offering a glimpse into a world where ordinary moments are transformed into extraordinary works of art.

Arguedas typically explores the intricate interplay between humanity and the environment. He is known for his figurative work that embraces the spirit of masquerade. Growing up in Barva de Heredia near San José, a town known for its mask parades, Arguedas explores the various guises people adopt. Even if physical masks are not depicted, he presents archetypes and patterns of human behaviour. Through his watercolour paintings, Arguedas offers a lens through which to view our multifaceted human experience. Even when Arguedas is not painting literal masks, he captures the way individuals project their identities, affirming that even “your face is a mask”.
