Description Childhood I enjoyedon the beach warmlyas time went by tenderlyunder the golden sun hotlymaturing.One day to my innocent facein the burning sanda mask of thick hair and smiling aspect attached.Years passed.Borrowed habits provedcomfortable -to the found maskthey stuck.Countenance closedhot sun encroached.From afar a warm message of love did arrive.Blood thus far peacefully coursingTo a sudden boil did come.Great emotion unleashed- revelation unmaskingsoul saved, by love released.Shining:Resplendent love;Transcendent - adored
Juan Romagosa, Davis CA Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement My love of the Arts is nurtured by a passion for painting. I enjoy playing with oils in styles ranging from the symbolic, such as Romantic and Magic Realism, to Contemporary Realism with an edge. My predilection is Figurative allegory in thought provoking settings that evoke a sense of Classicism. I am represented by the Vacaville Art Gallery, the Arts Benicia Gallery and have been shown at various galleries in Solano County, California. I am Vice President of the Fairfield Visual Arts Association and my paintings are collected in California, Mexico, and Denmark. I am fascinated by the magic of the human figure and awed by the wonders of nature. I love illustrating the interplay of mankind and nature in my paintings, reconciling humanity to the environment, while exploring interpersonal relationships.
