"The rough coast, unceasing movement of the sea caressing the rocks, create a magical effect," Fernando says poetically. He built up many layers of paint in orange, turquoise, green, purple and sprays of white, creating a vivid abstraction of the view from a rocky coastline. Golden light on the water, sea spray and an ethereal sunset in the distance.
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.
