"I was inspired by the different layers of the soul," says Fernando. "The piece has many different planes, and I used a considerable amount of paint for this work, respecting its evolution while acquiring consistency and movement." A rich, shifting surface of purples and blues conjures clouds, water, sea, geology and planetary bodies.
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.
