Gaston Carrio

Medium: Mixed Media

Booth #: GS13C

Artist bio: I am smitten, and at the same time intrigued, by the underlying, yet unspoken and sublime conversation, that a painting can evoke within one’s unconsciousness. The range and possibility between the brush stroke; whether it be simple or complex, coupled with its overall effect, both inspires and challenges me to induce certain sense of the unknown, intimacy, as well as awe. I get immersed into interpreting the unconscious symbolism, especially those exceeding the limitations of simply aesthetic conditions.

Artist Statement: Multilayered abstracts. Oils, powders, turpentine, graphite over aluminum panel. Oil and charcoal marks are being created and then wiped out again with a rag drenched in solvent to give a new picture in which a generated grid have to stand their own against smeared surfaces. Torched resin finish.
