ALFREDO AYA


STATEMENT


I rely on formal techniques while creating a new language. The time it takes oil paint to dry allows the blending of colors, creation of shades, and tones that juxtapose contrasting colors without breaking the atmosphere. Form and movement emerge from color in the same way dance is natural to music.

ABOUT THE WORK


Alfredo Aya is known for his canvases where the colors of his beloved Colombian countryside gives birth to magical abstract landscapes of a unique poetry.
Blue oceans, tropical flowers, palm trees are the foundation of subtle compositions of pastel blues, green, yellow and purple.
Whereas most of his works come across as being completely abstract, often the figurative world that inspires them comes to the surface, in an array of colorful shapes reminescent of stained glass windows.
