Aythamy Armas

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1977

My work focuses on painting, on its possibilities and on the construction of compositions from the values and qualities of paint itself.I understand painting not only as a medium with which represent reality, but as an end in itself.I see it as an autonomous element that, through its gesturalism, the strokes and the different graphic and aesthetic resources allows us to build artworks to travel through. A language that does not tries to represent something, but that builds spaces in which to exist, endless spaces to roam seeing. I think of the canvas or support as an area to work on, a surface where you try to give your best. To me an artwork is a place to be. A landscape to visit.
