Juan Cossio "Solid Dream" 51 x 33 inch Mixed Media on Panel

About

Item is in excellent condition and has only been displayed in a gallery setting. Item includes frame; framed dimensions are approximately 53 x 36 inches. Cossio's principle tool for painting is an airbrush, which sprays the paint onto the canvas and allows for seamless blending of pigments. This blending allows Cossio to achieve high detail and precision found in his elaborate works. By using an airbrush instead of a standard paint brush, Cossio changes the function of a tool originally designed to retouch photographs into the primary means of creating a photorealistic image. In each of his compositions, Cossio experiments with the human form and its ability to convey emotion in functional, minimalistic interiors. Many of his works echo those of the New Realism movement, conjuring an atmosphere in which the figure is derived from reality but the other elements are fabricated, obscure, utilitarian, yet unexpected. Cossio pares down the environment in which the figure is placed so as to direct all concentration on the figure. Cossio's "New Realism" is based on experimenting with mechanical, technological, and aesthetic tools that push the boundaries of pictorial compositions within the framework of figurative painting. He readily uses a variety of techniques to achieve his forms with photography serving as one of the most important advances to his method. Though each painting is never approached the same, his process usually begins with creating a high-resolution photograph of his model that is altered and edited to create a pigment toner transfer that is then applied to the primed panel or board. The toner transfers help to build the dimension of his figures and breaks up the flatness that can be caused when applying airbrush. The airbrush is Cossio's preferred tool due to the aesthetic qualities and highly reproductive values it can achieve when creating highly detailed photorealistic works. Acetates are produced to mask certain areas that are airbrushed. He then finishes with detailed brush painting to perfect the areas that need handwork. All of this work is done is Cossio's studio and no work is outsourced.
