"Sublime Trees" and "Essentia"

Published 6 years ago

The word “essence” comes from the Latin word of essential, whose root is the infinitive verb esse, or to exist, whose participle ens refers to an existing being. I consider this to be an ideal title since the main feature of my work is the interpretation of my inner worlds. For me, my works are complete manifestations of my being and the pure essence of my creative self since watercolor technique with exquisite and subtle transparencies leave it clear that the author does not subject the artworks to intellectual scrutiny; rather, he lets them be, and allows his emotions and sensations to flow into the works according to his frame of mind and immerses himself in these images.

Using watercolor to capture the sublime in everyday life…

Mauricio Paz viola

Self-taught artist Mauricio Paz Viola (b 1985; Carmelo, Colonia, Uruguay) embarked on his artistic journey early in life. Dabbling in plastic art since 7, he has participated in various art competitions in his native Uruguay and abroad. At 14, Paz Viola began to participate in group shows and individual shows nationally and internationally in galleries and museums in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, United States, Italy, among others. His work have been featured in doctoral studies programs in art in universities in Chile, Mexico, Argentina and Spain, and are frequently featured in magazines and art books, among which are Latin American Plastic Art Annual Review, High Impact: the Art of Visual (New York) as well as books in Spain, Argentina, UK, France, etc. The style of Paz Viola has evolved from realism, landscape and portraits in his youth to surrealism and expressionism. Since his arrival in Chile in 2008, he started to focus on abstract expressionism. The most notable influences of Paz Viola are Roberto Matta, Maurits Cornelis Escher, Joan Miró, Vasili Kandinski, Max Ernst, as well as Uruguayan artist and friend Javier Gil, who imbued a sense of motion into rigid objects as if everything had a life of its own – a concept expressed in Paz Viola’s series “Nothing in the Void” Paz Viola is currently based out of Pacific Grove, California. www.mauriciopazviola.com
