Abraham Mujica Bio/Statement
Sometimes I paint in order to liberate the pent-up emotions from months or days or years ago. Sometimes I paint because I have nothing to say and I just need to paint. Sometimes I have this feeling that something has taken control of my hands and the energy needs to be released with brush on canvas. Sometimes I hate what I paint and I get frustrated and end up painting nothing.
My intention in creating my pieces is not to reinvent the wheel, nor to find immortality. I paint because I love the smell of fresh paint. Because I love the wine and rum that tend to accompany the work hours. Because I love the smell of cigar smoke in my studio. I paint to meet the challenge of reinventing reality in each new work, of having the eyes and faces of my subjects be the ones to observe the viewer. I seek that my brush strokes do not hold fear, that they are free-flowing, allowing the paint and brush run freely on the canvas.
