ARTIST STATEMENT


Boesmi's paintings speak in a considerable percentage of a deep need not to forget the aesthetic and pleasurable dimension of contemporary art. These images are related and dialogue with the public through sensations rather linked to their vision of the world and a fascination for certain aspects of nature. They are images that are full of characters and intimate experiences, of a kind of rhythm and personal cadence that are revealed through layers of paint that suggest landscapes, constellations and crowded horizons.

It is a search that travels the path of abstraction and the transformation of what is perceived as the stage and engine of the images that are manifested in the supports. In his work he is interested in the concept of agglomeration and exploring color in a rather visceral and emotional way. In communicating in a direct way, rather complex concepts and sensations such as the formal relationship between the micro and the macro present in nature and a series of spatial events that reach us in the form of pixels (...)

His references are felt mainly in nature and in the cities where he lived and worked, in the symbolists, in abstraction, in urban art, and above all in the idea of understanding that many times not everything has to have an explanation and that there are things that cannot be controlled or explained. The transversality that characterizes contemporaneity tells us about that.
