Alma Profunda, a hyperreal sloth painting by Gilberto Ramírez

Gilberto Ramírez Chaves’ hyperreal sloth painting called Alma Profunda, a captivating exploration of intimacy, solitude, and the enigmatic mysteries of life and death. Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of artistic influences—including Joaquín Sorolla, Rembrandt, and Diego Velásquez—Ramírez Chaves’ artistry transcends mere representation to offer profound reflections on the human condition.

In his meticulous renderings, Ramírez Chaves captures figures and landscapes with a stunning level of detail, blurring the line between reality and illusion. Whether depicting adults, children, or the serene beauty of the Costa Rican forest, each brushstroke is imbued with a sense of intimacy and reverence for the natural world.

Adopting a mathematical approach to his craft, Ramírez Chaves explores the concept of proportion and the revered “Golden Ratio,” seeking to reveal the innate perfection found in nature. His compositions are meticulously balanced, creating harmonious compositions that resonate with a sense of order and symmetry.

In his latest body of work, Ramírez Chaves embraces a freer, more abstract aesthetic, infusing his canvases with a vibrant synthesis of colors and shapes. Through imaginative interpretations of natural forms—ferns, aquatic plants, and birds—he invites viewers to celebrate the essence of the natural world in all its splendor.

With this hyperreal sloth painting, Gilberto Ramírez Chaves invites viewers to contemplate the beauty and complexity of existence, encouraging us to see the world through new eyes and embrace the profound connections that bind us to the natural world.
