Gonzalez, known for his experimental approach, paints a diverse range of subjects. His work spans from nostalgic childhood memories to intimate domestic scenes with his children, still life depictions in the home, and even animals like the bull, a powerful symbol in Costa Rican culture.

Drawing inspiration from modern masters such as Gauguin and Picasso, Gonzalez infuses his artworks with Cubist elements and earthy tones, creating vibrant and emotive compositions, as seen here in this muted abstract painting, “El Silencio”.

This piece portrays a serene scene with a muted yellow/brown palette, and a simple depiction of a boat carrying two figures, evoking a sense of tranquility and solitude. The subtle suggestion of a moon in the background hints at a nocturnal setting, enhancing the atmosphere of silence and contemplation.

Gonzalez approached this muted abstract painting with his typical spontaneity, allowing the colours and forms to unfold organically. He notes, “the colours present themselves; they are not planned. They flow through me.”
