By Aurelio Lopez Rodriguez, Spain.
‘The Caress of Water’ tells us about sensuality and introspection, sensations and contrasts. A bubbling ocean awash against flesh creates a natural, visual tranquilizer. With water as an example, we can be delicate and sensitive yet, at the same time, powerful.
The small, multi-colored intricate detail of pebbles, bubbles, and drops of water is the vehicle that leads us to the ultimate sensory experience of the work – you can almost taste the salt water, smell the ozone and feel the sun burn on your skin.
Combined with Aurelio’s brilliant technique, his sensitivity for beauty and careful consideration of balance make this work incredibly impressive with deeply immersing pastels.
