Artist Statement: Henry Mejia

My work involves subjective representations of a reality reflected in an attraction and meditation of the landscape, in a system that recalls a faint recollection of the familiar. My works have a forceful coloristic and formal praxis where I delve into the creation of intensive, fantastic yet familiar images. It is the contrast between mediated and impulsively freely organized forms, and the memory of a sensible reality that is imposed from the outside world as factual experience that is at the core of my work.
