Mixed media photography and painting.

By Juan Bernal


Photography has been a very important part of my work, I’ve used it as a stepping stone for my paintings, employing the images I take, transforming and redesigning them.

My paintings are the work of an architect in search of composition, balance, spaces and volumes, based on the geometry of nature, creating my own interpretation.

In this series, on any given work, I use a fragment of a photograph and do a partial print on paper or canvas and then I paint around it, preserving the fragment or changing it as little as possible. 

Sometimes, especially at the beginning of the series, I completed the pieces in such a way that it’s difficult to be certain what is photography and what is painting. Later on I have intentionally made the differences more noticeable, sometimes putting them on separate canvases, to let the photo stand for itself, leaving the painted fraction unfinished for contrast.
