‘ In my process as a painter I began to appreciate the invisible, or rather undetectable symbols in the petroglyphs. I fell in love with their calligraphy. Out of fragments of rock and glyphs, over time, my pictorial attempt to capture new calligraphies and new forms in mineral earth colors renews me and brings me closer to nature’.
– Alejo Santa Maria
Carnaval Series 2014-2015
Note: All of Alejo’s Original abstract paintings continue over the edge of the canvas, so they may be exhibited with or without framing.
