Karlos Pérez

Karlos  Pérez
With a background in photography, video, and installation, Karlos Perez’s paintings have blurred the order of the traditional discourse of art. His works are not “portraits” in the traditional sense, but rather the power of the images comes from their existential character. Pérez's paintings blur the boundaries between mediums. Fragments of images have been meticulously analyzed by the artist and processed through the filters of his personal experiences. Family photographs become surreal--somehow absent of any spatial and temporal location. The artist scratches at the canvas, blots on paint, obstructs and interferes with the visual, reshaping the events that had previously been captured on film. The results are enigmatic paintings that seem to have traveled through time to captivate us in the present.
