This evocative watercolour by Adrián Arguedas depicts a snapshot of girls swimming, an intimate scene of three girls changing from their bathing suits after a refreshing swim. Arguedas portrays the natural grace and innocence of childhood, highlighting the simplicity and beauty found in mundane activities.

Each figure is presented with a sense of vulnerability, creating a poignant narrative that resonates with universal themes of growth and transition. Through his sensitive portrayal of the children, Arguedas invites contemplation on the passage of time and the fleeting nature of youth.

This painting serves as a testament to Arguedas’ skill as a painter and his ability to capture the subtleties of human experience. It’s an example of Arguedas’ figurative work that explores the various guises people adopt. Always referencing popular culture, his work presents archetypes, depicting patterns of behaviour, offering a lens through which to view our multifaceted human experience. He often paints literal masks, but even when they’re absent, Arguedas captures the way individuals project their identities, affirming that even “your face is a mask”.

This watercolour of girls swimming ebodies the timeless appeal of Adrián Arguedas and Costa Rican art. Whether displayed in a private residence or a public space, it invites viewers to pause and reflect on the simplicity of everyday moments.
