Mineral ocean, orthogonal horizon

Graphite and acrylic on sanded paper
70×100 cm
2016

This painting on paper has their onset on a mimetic and idealized representation of the landscape that reaches a simplified formalization. On that way towards conceptual abstraction and pictorial work, I’ve combined chromatic interests —the paintings are based on several layers of ultramarine blue paint and an acrylic formulation of my own based on graphite— with other materic interests —the alteration of the paper and its subsequent process of sanding— in order to reach a metallic finish that join forces with a representation of a great dark ocean from an orthogonal point of view.
