This colourful abstract painting by Carlos Fernández is called The Botanics of Gessner #1

Carlos Fernández’s Colourful Abstract Painting called The Botanics of Gessner #1 a captivating ode to the natural splendor of his surroundings in the mountains of Santa Ana, San José. Drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of flora that envelops his farm, Fernández masterfully blends organic elements with acrylic paint, blurring the lines between art and nature.

Influenced by luminaries such as Julie Mehretu, Francis Alys, and Joseph Beuys, Fernández employs a diverse array of materials, including soil, beeswax, and turmeric, to create his evocative compositions. The clay-rich hills of Santa Ana serve as both muse and medium, with Fernández incorporating locally sourced clay into his artwork, resulting in a striking interplay of texture and color.

Each piece is a testament to Fernández’s meticulous process, with pigments sourced from natural spices like turmeric and achiote applied directly onto the canvas. Through his work, Fernández seeks to evoke a sense of place and belonging, with each stroke of the brush reflecting the rhythms of the natural world.

“My work is strictly contextual,” Fernández explains. “I begin as one would cultivate a garden, analyzing the environment around me before translating my observations onto canvas, photographs, or performance pieces.” Experience the immersive beauty of Carlos Fernández’s “Colourful Abstract Painting,” where art and nature converge in a harmonious symphony of color and texture.
