Artwork

Artist Juan Gabriel Perez Botero layered bright red over blue, yellow, and white to create this flowing abstract. He intuitively positioned the layers to be distinct and complementary to the next. "Abstraction makes use of the most essential elements of visual arts such as color, texture, line, and to a great extent, intuition, to create a form that disconnects or denies the near reality to have its own artistic expression," says Juan.

Juan Gabriel Peréz Botero aka JUGA

Dosquebradas, Colombia

Juan Gabriel Perez’s mixed media pieces, organized in lines and blocks of color, resemble a bird’s eye view of an urban area. Reminiscent of Richard Diebenkorn’s abstract paintings, the work is clearly influenced by the landscape. The bright primary colors bring to mind the vibrancy of Juan’s native country, Colombia. There is energy in the way the shapes intersect and move around each other, with crisscrossing lines that create both balance and haphazardness. Juan’s artworks are assembled with a range of media. Among his application of acrylic paint and charcoal, you may notice a small stub of a pencil, an airplane boarding pass, or a crumbled piece of notepaper hidden within the compositions. The layers of imagery from torn newspapers and magazines create the effect of street posters, just as they are posted on top of each other and torn down in urban spaces. In a contemporary way, Juan conveys the rich and stimulating world around him through a mix of geometric and organic forms.

I absolutely love this piece: the multiple layers and materials give it such compelling depth. Every time I look at it, I seem to find a new shape, pattern, or plane. The title is interesting: rather than "Turn Around," this piece compels me to explore, to go further! I'm truly grateful for your work and craft, and would love to hear more about the inspiration or story behind the piece. Thank you very much, Nick
