Notions about my paintings

My search in painting is primarily based upon the destabilization of the planes through the juxtaposition and break of perspectives energetically coloured, transporting to the watchers retina several active areas to experience an illusion of movement as well as several passive points to relax the retina.

åp
Alvaro Arrosamena

I am interested in creating new spaces of visual development that could be absorbed by the unconsious of the one who observes innocently, trying to evade any intellectual information.

Through this I would like to stimulate new visual experiences where the eye of the observer becomes the only receptor of my work.

I strongly believe in the aesthetic of colour and shape as a way to experiment and explore unknown states of mind and therefore the possibility to develop new sensations and stimuli inside the watcher.

This is the silent search of harmony through chaos, shape that vanishes away in order to become shape again in a constant game with our own existence.
