The Botanics of Gessner #1 is a colourful abstract painting by Carlos Fernández.

It features a collage-like approach, blending different images and scenes into a mosaic of plants and vibrant hues. This particular work is a visually striking composition, merging various botanical elements and landscapes to create a dynamic and multifaceted experience on the canvas.

Nestled amidst the picturesque mountains of Santa Ana, San José, Fernández finds inspiration in the natural splendour of his surroundings. This colourful abstract painting is an example of how the natural world influences Fernández’s aesthetic language.

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. Influenced by acclaimed artists like Julie Mehretu and Joseph Beuys, Fernández merges organic elements with acrylic paint to forge a symbiotic relationship between art and nature.

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.
