Oil and encaustic on wood

Color and material, with no doubt, are the elements in which Carmen Arvizu’s work is based. When we talk about material in this exhibition Stories of Fragments, this support is what releases this searching; a canvas, a wooden frame, these pieces or fragments enclose, enforce, align and accompanying the painting. Formatting diptych and triptychs of fragmented paintings with a story as center. The preparation for an exhibition with Carmen is a ludic process. She finished her degree of graphic design before going to art school and now she guides us to her work with three precise points: framing, the figure’s treatment as well as the line, are directional signs of her painting.
