Museum Description  

Carlos Luna
Torito Power
CCG Art Collection, Miami

 

Luna’s approach to constructing a painting is to work very carefully to ensure that the painting is a well-crafted material artifact, as well as an articulate expression of his ideas. He enjoys the process of working in oil. “Painting is like a woman who will show you her body only if you offer her your soul,” says the artist. Respect for the process of oil painting requires working slowly to build up multiple layers after he personally prepares the canvas with different tints of gesso, some hand-made, some bought. The composition process begins with preliminary sketches to prepare the ideas for execution in the painting. A charcoal drawing on a base of Indian red forms the structural basis of the painting. The surface of the canvas is built up by applying layers of color in stages of wet-dry-wet layering.
