Francisco Suárez

«Like someone who gazes into the flame of a candle, we become absorbed in the very act of looking, waiting for the vision to be transformed into contemplation of our inner self, of time and existence. We enter the territory of emotion.»

The painter Francisco Suárez (León, 1965) displays in his most recent series, Lumen, a refined and singular conception of geometric abstraction. Without abandoning the characteristic rigour and measure of his work, these pieces appear as a revelation, for between their layers of colour an inherent glow would seem to emerge from the canvas.

Since it is the very unit of luminous flux that names the series, his works could not be conceived in any other way than by giving light the leading role. As the cornerstone of the composition, Francisco Suárez recreates powerful light effects through a vibrant use of colour, from which the work rises.

The artist thus manifests a perfect conjunction between chance and control, the result of a refined technique that seeks to preserve the most characteristic warmth of informalist art and transfer it to the realm of abstraction. In this way, we can perceive an intention to leave a mark, to influence the viewer’s gaze to the point of placing it somewhere close to meditation.
