About The Artist
Abstract artist Alejandro Goya is the owner and visionary behind Paia Contemporary Gallery, now a virtual gallery since the closing of the gallery space in May 2014. Since 1998, Alejandro Goya’s abstract art has appeared in several group and solo exhibitions in the US. Recent events include repeat Artist in Residence at the Four Season’s Resort at Wailea, multiple Jury Exhibitions at the Schaefer International Gallery, HiArt Gallery (New York), a number of exhibitions at Paia Contemporary Gallery and other Hawaii Galleries.
Living and painting by the ocean is a constant reminder of how people and nature have unintentionally partnered to create art. Rusting metal, peeling paint, colors on random surfaces are faded and transformed by the weather, while the tropical sunlight marks its permanent glaze upon them all.
I am intrigued by color interaction theories, and equally as relevant in my work is the blend of left and right brain regarding composition, medium and color.
Though color might be the highlight of my abstract paintings, other elements are in close watch. My minimalist paintings are free of texture and lines straight without variation, while the more spontaneous and freehand pieces favors medium to thick textured mixed media.
Knowledge, experience, spontaneity and their pivotal balance are key throughout the construction stages.
Overall, experimentation is the most frustrating and rewarding facet. Experimenting through trial and error color fields, always surprises me with the unexpected. Rules are broken and risks are taken for the sake of encouraging the new and personal.
