Cortos en Paisaje Achiote is an orange and yellow abstract painting on paper by Carlos Fernández. Achiote is a spice and colouring agent extracted from the seeds of the evergreen Bixa orellana shrub. This work on paper features the colours of achiote with a large orange rectangle with orangey-yellow leaves that appear printed on top, set against an off-white background.

Nestled in the mountains of Santa Ana, San José, Fernández finds inspiration in the lush landscape around the farm where he lives, as well as the visual language of renowned artists, such as Julie Mehretu and Joseph Beuys.

The farm serves not only as a source of sustenance but also as a wellspring of artistic materials as Fernández integrates natural elements such as soil and beeswax into his acrylic paintings. His work reveals an intimate dialogue between art and the environment.

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. Experience the harmonious fusion of art and nature in Fernández’s evocative soil, turmeric and acrylic painting.
