Carlos Fernández’s soil and turmeric painting called Tierras Rojas

Embark on a journey into the creative realm of Carlos Fernández with his captivating artwork, Soil and Turmeric Painting. Nestled amidst the picturesque mountains of Santa Ana, San José, Fernández finds inspiration in the natural splendor of his surroundings. 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, Francis Alys, and Joseph Beuys, Fernández merges organic elements with acrylic paint to forge a symbiotic relationship between art and nature. Clay sourced from the hills surrounding his farm becomes a central component of his compositions, blended with paint in a unique ratio that showcases the earth’s natural hues.

Fernández’s artistic process is deeply rooted in his environment, akin to cultivating a garden. He meticulously observes and analyzes his surroundings, translating his insights into a series of painting and drawing exercises before transferring his vision onto canvases, photographs, videos, or performances.

With a profound belief that “pigment is food,” Fernández seamlessly integrates spices like turmeric and achiote directly onto his canvases, infusing his work with vibrant colors drawn from the rich tapestry of his cultural heritage. Step into Fernández’s world and experience the harmony between art and nature, where every brushstroke is a testament to the beauty and complexity of the world around us.
