Luis A. Gutierrez

My paintings begin from the inside-out. First as an idea which is then transformed into paintings, they are visual studies responding to the need to tell a story or express a thought. The child who is eager to learn and explore always lives inside. Every piece is not only an investigation of the subject, but also of the artist himself.

Once a concept matures into a concrete idea, I start to choose the materials that I work with. Every image or text is deliberately chosen to invite the viewer to become an active participant. While in front the canvas, I use my color palette and paint application to enhance the viewer’s experience.
