Don’t Worry Why (2011) by Emilio Perez
Having always been attracted to painting and drawing, Perez’s unique practice is a back and forth conversation between the two mediums. As he brushes wet-on-wet passages over a thin, atmospheric sprayed-on ground, colors blend and physical depth is built. He then commits to drawing back into the surface—slicing into it with a sharp Exacto knife— to peel away large and small areas that define the composition.
