About

Felipe Riesco is a very young Chilean artist who finds great inspiration in the Italian Renaissance period. This influence can be clearly seen in the characters and their attitude, as well as in the color schemes used. He brings this influence into a contemporary context, mixing actual icons and adding a touch of surrealism in his work along with more vibrant colors. All of this with a great, realistic technique. He flutters between a faithful copy of details seen through a veil of dream-like reality. Riesco’s artwork invites the viewer to ask themselves a series of questions in order to read his paintings. An exercise similar to describing a dream you remember by heart but don’t know how to put it in words, so others can relate to it. "Sátira 1" (Satire 1) is a composition made in thirds, depicting on the left a very young king yawning at the two classic paintings in front of him. Both pieces being oneirically destroyed: a marble sculpture smoking and caught up in fire as if it were a piece of paper; a painting with a faded face where even the frame has been intervened. Could this be a self-portrait of the artist about the boredom of mastering the technique at such a young age while struggling to find his own creative input?
