DECEMBER 2015: VIVIAN CALDERÓN BOGOSLAVSKY
My creative process and the way that I get inspired starts when I have to solve problems, and I love to do that. When I have a blank canvas I begin to create stains with water, black color, and plastic stucco; in some cases I use sand or ashes and I make them my own elements, because they are the guide for my creative process. I solve problems by identifying the stains. I give them life with volume, shadows, tones and, of course, color.
But I also find ideas from nature. Sometimes I take pictures of objects that have meaning to me, or from geography or universe books showing how incredible earth and space can be. My painting is organic and closely related to earth. Each piece is different.
As I paint I try and give each work time to settle. I might stop for a couple of days or even start from scratch. Other works I would admire from a distance and at different times of day to see how light changes them.
