A heavily textured, layered composition in earthy green, orange and red, recalling volcanic activity deep within the earth. Fernando says poetically that he was "inspired by the footprint of human beings who inhabit the earth, and approach the abyss of its center."
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.
