Mauricio Gómez Castello

Mauricio Gómez Castello´s representational art meets abstract.
 
Nature painting across a spectrum of abstraction, Mauricio turns everything from nature  into colorful, iconic pieces of art worthy of any space, his transformative process of experiencing nature and the art object that reflects that interaction,  creates  a direct narrative from nature to object. Filtering the experience of being in nature through art-making results not just in the representation of nature. After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta in Graphic Art, he returned to Colombia.

A comprehensive selection of works from this new series PENACHOS tufts, a bunch or cluster of small, usually soft and flexible feathers, fixed closely together at the base and loose at the upper ends. Based on nature’s sculptured forms Gómez induces new definitions through fragmented objects, bending forms, concepts and connotations of the everyday natural system. It is his mimetic impulse, the stimulus to develop something new, that was not there before by means of colour, brush, and canvas. His primary subject: colour.

In observing pictorial style, one gradually comes to see a type of abstraction in his representation of certain details. Which reveals, even greater still, the true finality of his work, reaffirming the primacy of a visual reflection on painting itself and its possibilities

Mauricio´s method of pouring paint over treated canvas to allow pigments to soak into the fabric. "stain paintings," emphasize the luminous and textual effects of his medium.His art seems to require no effort to be understood. color palette and the austere white picture plane demonstrate the artist’s concern with relationships of space, color, and light, as opposed to the psychologically expressive tendencies of contemporaries.

Mauricio has been in many exhibitions, great part of then in Colombia, EEUU
