Artist Statement

Adrián Navarro seeks to expand the vocabulary of the visual arts, establishing connections between the pictorial medium, perception, architecture and abstraction. Navarro’s visual exploration celebrates the dichotomy among physical confinement and expansive freedom in painting. The artist’s training as an architect becomes apparent in his approach, showing architecture’s ultimate function: creating habitable spaces. His paintings work as a window to an illusory landscape through a skin that creates the effect of permeability and detachment. Navarro’s struggle between opposites symbolizes the pulsation of life that plays tensely with the role of our body in the artificial world.
