This months exhibit represents art by Maurico Zuniga
“My paintings represent a fantasy world, a distortion of the truth and of reality. The world created offer a range of experience from the mundane to the dreamlike. Often times, it is my emotional reaction to the painting as it is being created which serves as the inspiration. The driver is often the energy of the colors. I typically start with color then add lines. The lines develop into figures, Shapes, and Images. It is truly an evolutionary process. As it evolves, The painting takes on a life of its own. The techniques I use vary and the painting changes given the specific technique and the tools that are used. Technique gives the painting texture. For me, the texture of the painting is very important, it gives the image life. Sometimes texture is used to represent an object, other times, the texture overrides the image. It becomes of the utmost importance in my painting; the way the color sits on the texture and reacts to it. Because of the texture the painting speaks to the individual on more than a visual or emotional level.”
