Francisco Amaya: Beheld but Unknown

May 7th to May 29th, 2010

“I like to meditate on the patterns all around us that carry an inexplicable meaning, a feeling that starts with the eyes but ends up floating in the space inches above the head – beheld, but unknown,” Amaya explains.

These patterns recur in his paintings in the intimate similarity of trees, maps, telephone lines- indicators of the web-like lattice that structures his reality while his drawings evoke the architectural ghosts that inhabit the urban space.
