The Art Of Belonging

Carlos Oviedo, artist, painter, esthete, creative given the task of continuing the living flame realism. Oviedo is that artist true to its genre, one of the great and proud representatives of figurative art, a dedicated supporter of this art, and especially now that the so-called Art appeared on the art scene with such force that tried to relegate the realism and figuration, while it is important to understand that contemporary art has its place within the cycles of Art, can not come to replace the Academy or the virtuosity and even less to the need for aesthetic contemplation he has existed within the human being through art history and continues now with more strength, especially right now, when those deep contemplation spaces are so limited and necessary in order to maintain a spiritual balance, Now that the human being is constantly bombarded with aggressive and painful images that come and disturb.  Carlos Oviedo has been offering a work in constant evolution, which gives us an inexhaustible passion, in their constant search for beauty through his work. A passion that has become obsessed aesthetic, and develops and re-wrap their muses with cloths vibrant colors sometimes other subtle but always following delicate movements of these female bodies, which are revealed before our eyes in most of its works. Works full of beauty, passion, subtlety female, that becomes visual poetry. Poetry is a speaking picture, painting is a silent poem: Roman essayist Plutarch wrote when defining classical art. This is what gives us Carlos Oviedo on the dryness of raw linen, layer after layer, glaze after glaze, with the patience of one who knows that at the end of that process has found what obsessed, what he calls his recurring dreams. Are these dreams that repeat endlessly as female figures, sometimes on dark backgrounds, where light plays between the undulating forms of the fabric and gives the perpetual motion, noble simplicity quiete an Vinkelman nescribio grandeur. has failed to stop in time, and leads them through the paint to a silent concert where is the driver of these symphonies bright, well applied where colors are well executed musical notes. Oviedo walking parallel with his work and offers a critical view of this, sustained in the canons of beauty and it is precisely in those canons which supports the theory of Classicism. Let the art continues to be the haven of spiritual peace. Do not let the dirty art of painting, we understand that there are universal values ​​that are immovable, two plus two will still be four, no matter how many times we want to change the result., So classical art has been with us since the beginning and shall continue until the human being is a human being, can be innovations, development and progression in the field of art, but to deny or dismiss what we have created would be impossible, because this development is already cognized in human consciousness, and of that which conscious humanity, and can not “not be aware”, but part and parcel of our forever.
