Even though visual arts are based on materials such as marble, pigments, oils, etc., the most important ingredient, that must be present in art, is emotion.

WINDOWS

Multiple pieces landscapes
Images of nature, oil paintings by Juan Bernal

I always thought that hanging one of my landscapes on a wall was like opening a window.

For my first show in New York, “Windows of Colombia”, I wanted my landscapes to be seen through an actual window. I collected several old salvaged window frames and painted multiple pieces for the panes, resulting in each work being made out of several elements.

My aim was to make all the parts work as a whole and at the same time for each to stand by itself. 

During this process, I discovered the potential of close-up framing, a technique I would keep on experimenting with in subsequent series, as well as working with several elements (triptychs) but omitting the window frames. 

Sustainability and protection of the environment are necesary to the survival of humankind
