about Fernando Daza
To perform his work, Daza use the handmade torn paper in strip form that later he accumulate in an orderly manner and he lay on canvas, following a compositional scheme that previously he draw with a pencil. It is a work made on canvas, two-dimensional support traditionally used in painting while its character is clearly three-dimensional because of the position of the paper; it is folded and pasted on canvas. Through a zenithal light projection, we obtain a soft contrast between lights and shadows. This is the formal feature most relevant and most distinctive in his artwork. Fernando Daza´s work has a double conceptual origin, one mystic and another concrete, and it involves between the spiritual search of a transcendental experience and the desire to emphasize the material presence as a concrete reality and not as an illusion.
