Bayou, Fabricio Suarez
“Each one of my paintings is a continuation of observed shapes, formed by washes of color.”
My on-going practice of Plein-Air painting takes a turn to the abstract and surreal.
In studio, the immediacy of the landscape disappears, as memory and old photographs take on a dominant role. The combination of Pieter Bruegel and George Innes inspires the use of light and mood, bringing tragedy and drama to the landscape; expressing conflict both violent and peaceful, be it by man or nature.
Each one of my paintings is a continuation of observed shapes, formed by washes of color. While exploring and romanticizing the light in an expressionist way, I embrace a process of both uncontrolled and manipulated brush strokes. The subject becomes a rich environment that holds a narrative of spontaneous mystery.
