A soil, turmeric and acrylic painting by Carlos Fernández. This painting embodies a deeply abstract vision with flecks of colour and subtle suggestions of leaves.

Nestled in the mountains of Santa Ana, San José, Fernández finds inspiration in the lush surroundings of the farm where he lives, drawing on the visual language of renowned artists such as Julie Mehretu and Joseph Beuys. The painting features earthy red tones, highlighting the warmth and richness of the Santa Ana landscape.

Fernández’s farm serves as a source of sustenance and artistic materials, allowing him to integrate natural elements such as soil, beeswax, and turmeric with acrylics. Fernández’s work reveals a deep dialogue between art and the environment as he layers fragments of soil and beeswax to create intricate textures and patterns. With a profound belief that “pigment is food,” Fernández seamlessly integrates spices like turmeric and achiote directly onto his canvases, like with this soil, turmeric and acrylic painting, infusing his work with vibrant colours drawn from his cultural heritage.

For Fernández, art is a contextual practice akin to tending a garden. He carefully observes his environment and embarks on a series of exercises before translating his perceptions onto canvas, photographs, or even through performances.
