SEBASTIAN BOESMI                                                                                             

Born in 1980 in Salta, Argentina and moved to Asuncion, Paraguay in 1983


STATEMENT

My works are very largely shaped by my experiences and daily observations and principally by my imagination. I am interested in the concept of camouflage and the investigation of color and the tensions that are present in culture and nature, sometimes amicably but often hostile to each other.

 

REFERENCES

I look for references mainly in nature and in the cities where I live and work, in symbolic elements, in abstraction, in urban art, in video games and above all when working I start from the idea of an understanding that often not everything has to have an explanation and that there are things that cannot be controlled or explained. The transversality that characterizes contemporary existence tells me that there is no left-right distinction, there is no predetermined order and the work I do speaks of that. 

 

MOTIVATION

The formal relationship between the micro and the macro, as present in nature. The energy of color and what happens when, according to J.A. Brea, once time is frozen, the image expands into space. I am inspired by the impact of this event. And among other things I am interested in painting since it makes the energy of that moment infinitely recur.
