The reason I chose the title for this piece was to play with a contrast of words "concealed" and "open."
I wanted to create a different colored sky that was not blue in nature. The pastel hues would serve as a backdrop for the clouds that seem to rise from the earth colored ground. The two main structures seem to drift apart between the spatial chasm. The structure in the front seems to open up with branch like limbs. In contrast, the receding grey structure in the distance seems reluctant to embrace the changing sky.
Christian was born in the United States but has also lived in Colombia. He has attended schools such as Parsons (New York City), The University of the Arts (PHILA) and Drexel University (PHILA) and has a BFA in graphic design. He now lives in South Florida and has exhibited with other Latinamerican artists. About his work: I have always strived to test my skills, imagination and patience with each painting/project I engage in. I enjoy having contrasting styles within my work. I feel that the use of these styles helps me to develop my sense of color, form, and composition. Most of my work requires a lot of time (preparatory black & white sketches, color studies). However other paintings are done directly onto the canvas without any sketches.
