Darwin Estacio Martínez

Artist's Statement

The images or motifs of my paintings are intended to embody general ideas through fragments and details that allude symbolically to a chain of actions that are maintained at all times in a speculative and interpretive level. I always find it more accurate to say that in my paintings absolutely nothing happens, except what an insidious observer is able to infer. tThe ambiguity of the situations tries to combine purely formal notions with the conceptual associations that they generate.

The use of the human figure removed from any individual reference helps me focus on personality archetypes. I use each figure as a kind human being type, assuming costumes and different poses along with color and composition, as essential components of the frame. In this sense, I can speak of a cinematographic painting.
