After an inspiring trip to the island of Tenerife off the coast of northwestern Africa, artist Fernando Bosch created this energetic, abstract painting of the Atlantic Ocean. He says he worked to convey the water's intense blue and strength as it bathes the Canary Islands.
Spanish artist Fernando Bosch’s work is heavily influenced by the molten earth, a result of his childhood living adjacent to the Bandama Caldera in the Canary Islands. The geological inspiration is visibly present in his mixed-media paintings. The telluric colors are those seen in the sulphuric waters, mineral-rich earth, and flowing magma of geothermal and volcanic sites. The layers of paint resemble strata of rock and strongly echo the nature of marble. Fernando paints on the ground, further connecting his canvases to the earth. Each piece speaks to terrestrial strength, power, and beauty.
