Sonoridad

by Julio Mejia

Artist Statement

My work is interested in the willful contrast of paint, which mirrors the narrative of an exemplar inherited lineage.  This lineage of unconventional risk-takers reflects the uncomfortable uncertain outcome of each painting.  These paintings are uneasy gambles of a romantic life.  The directional effort of paint unveils the visceral tension of beauty found in the forces of nature.
