Camilo Sanin uses line, color, and form to produce geometric abstract paintings that challenge preconceived visual ideals. Overlapping grids create formal structures that denote self-imposed visual boundaries that are then subverted by the artist through a synthesis of cultural materials and personal experience. While painting, Sanin becomes aware of his own self, of the distance and space between forms, and of the unity found in the face of fragmentation. He is interested in achieving visual equivalences through opposites, the relationship of the center to the periphery, surface development, and in the delineation of inclusion through exclusion.
