I was contacted by a couple in my very own town of Los Angeles who recently bought their dream home and wanted some fantastic original abstracts to give it some color and I am honored that they chose me as their primary artist. They arranged a studio visit to see the artwork in person and bought 3 works…the first is this one – Terra Verde – Forest Deep. This work is a large statement work and by that I mean a work that not only “makes a statement” but is also the dominant focal point in the room it hangs. It brings color and movement and can set the tone of the entire room…hence the term.
This work is a large work that I created on hand cut heavy canvas which I also hand primed with a triple layer of gesso for a nice solid base. I then used a palette knife to create large gestural motions which capture movement as you can see below. The work was rolled and stored until it was purchased by the collectors and was then stretched for hanginging in their lovely home!
Of course once the artwork is stretched and hanging in place it looks amazing and becomes the STATEMENT work it was always meant to be and is now gracing this wonderful room in Long Beach and being enjoyed by these wonderful collectors! Thank you so much! Nestor Toro – Los Angeles – Abstract Art
This really illustrates how an artwork can make a room! The deep blue of the furniture…the green of the foliage outside the window…even the golden glow of the lamp and the yellow in the work!
Perfect harmony and balance. So pleasing to the eye to have these organic colors all come together in the artwork – STUNNING
