Paisaje Pequeño #2 is a Carlos Fernández painting featuring the materials soil, turmeric and acrylic. This painting offers a deeply abstract and nuanced work that blends nature with artistic expression. The painting features neutral tones that provide a serene backdrop to spots and flecks of colour, as well as patterns reminiscent of leaves or flora.

Nestled in the mountains of Santa Ana, San José, Fernández finds inspiration in the lush landscape around the farm where he lives, as well as the visual language of renowned artists, such as Julie Mehretu and Joseph Beuys.

His farm serves not only as a source of sustenance but also as a rich reservoir of raw materials that find their way into his paintings. With a profound belief that “pigment is food,” Fernández often integrates spices like turmeric and achiote directly onto his canvases, and mixes soil into his paint, infusing his work with vibrant colours drawn from his cultural heritage.

For Fernández, art is a deeply contextual practice, akin to tending a garden. He observes his environment, embarking on a series of exercises before translating onto canvas, photographs, or even performances. Experience the harmonious fusion of art and nature in this Carlos Fernández painting.
