New Blood Art Statement

See inside the studio
Maintaining a lucid balance between the figurative and the abstract, Carlos San Millan uses graceful nebulae of colour to evoke memories, dreams and spirits -  generous washes of colour capture the paint in a very mobile phase.

Artist Statement

I was born in Spain in 1969 and now live and work in Quito, Ecuador. My paintings have a big autobiographical component: My subjects belong many times to my immediate environment, to my nearest reality,  largely due to my belief that it is not necessary to go too far to find the universal in everyday things. I would define my work as a continuous searching that becomes frustrating some times; I'm a little obsessed  about reaching some way to represent things and matter satisfactorily and definitively.

As direct influences on my work I can mention Antonio Lopez Garcia,  Avigdor Arikha, Ewan Uglow. Contemporary painters who have known how to see and represent matter essence as few ones.  I've been influenced also by conceptual painters as Rothko, Richter or Schnabel. But I cannot forget the first time I saw Velazquez at El Prado museum in Madrid; I was really amazed by his incredible apparently easiness to capture life in their portraits.
