Description

Agrofit #3 a black acrylic farmer painting by Carlos Fernández.

Carlos Fernández’s Black Acrylic Farmer Painting called Agrofit #3 where the tranquil surroundings of Santa Ana, San José, serve as both muse and medium. Nestled amidst the mountains, Fernández’s farm provides not only sustenance but also a wealth of raw materials that find their way into his evocative artworks.

Influenced by luminaries such as Julie Mehretu, Francis Alys, and Joseph Beuys, Fernández blurs the boundaries between art and nature, incorporating elements like soil, beeswax, and turmeric into his acrylic compositions. Drawing from the rich ceramic tradition of Santa Ana, Fernández blends clay harvested from the hills surrounding his farm with acrylic paint in a precise ratio, resulting in a spectrum of natural hues that range from pristine white to earthy red.

In his black pieces, Fernández harnesses the depths of black soil, infusing it with just a hint of pigment for added richness. Spices like turmeric and achiote are applied directly onto the canvas, a nod to Fernández’s belief that pigment is akin to nourishment.

“My work is a reflection of my environment,” explains Fernández. “Like tending to a garden, I begin with careful observation before translating my findings onto canvas, creating a visual narrative that speaks to the essence of my surroundings.” Explore the intricate interplay between art and nature with Carlos Fernández’s captivating Black Acrylic Farmer Painting Agrofit #3 a testament to the symbiotic relationship between creativity and the natural world.
