Choosing painting as his medium the work of Charlie Quezada has focused in approaching everyday life as an essential subject matter for the understanding of the creative process. From this exploration traditional genres such as interior, still life and landscape, are refreshed through a simplified representation. The mid- and large-sized paintings refer to a figurative language, which stems from the need of creating shapes from reality, but at the same time containing traces of abstraction in a search for subdued tension. The result are subjective places where everyday objects emerge while illustrating the artist’s own circumstance within his context.
