about Jorge

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” 

Pablo Picasso

 

“Form is the vessel in which ideation takes shape, and it is with ingenuity and abundant

variety that artists communicate their ideas about the world. Create art, is a captivating journey into the hearts and minds of this talented artist who has distinctive techniques and

interests.

Transposing visceral emanations into color values and textural forms, JORGE ARCOS’ highly personalized abstract paintings reflect an electrifying intensity as he extracts the repressed and the invisible, inviting the viewer to contemplate some inscrutable facet of our world.

Wassily Kandinsky once mused, 'there is no 'must' in art because art is free'. An artist of dynamic contrasts and exceptional vision, painter Jorge Arcos demonstrates this inherent freedom art sustains in his brilliant series. In Mr. Arcos' work, one witnesses the pinnacle of what makes for successful abstraction. Mr. Arcos is extraordinarily adept at intricate application of paint and color pattering. The palette of Mr. Arcos' series cannot be overemphasized. It is expressive to the highest degree and effectively communicates a mood to the viewer without need of direct scene or representation. Transcending everyday reality, Mr. Arcos is an artistic intermediary whose canvases conjure vibrant spectrums of human emotions”.
