Juan Carlos Camacho’s watercolours reflect his fascination with the interplay between art and architecture. His studies in drawing, painting, and architecture at the University of Costa Rica have shaped his view of these disciplines as complementary.

Camacho’s watercolours contain strong contrasts of light and shadow, with dynamic backgrounds painted in fast, expressive strokes that sometimes verge on abstraction. From these backdrops, he creates intricate structures that evoke human presence and experiences.

Whether depicting landscapes, homes, agricultural buildings, or weathered fences, Camacho captures Costa Rican scenes, exploring the connection between human life and landscapes.

“Tarde En Rojo” (translating to “afternoon in red”) features a building and surrounding foliage, with expressive brushstrokes as well as earthy and bright colours. Camacho hints at abstraction in an otherwise traditional scene. Painting the foliage quickly, Camacho let the water seep into the paper, adding a dynamic, fluid quality to the work.
