Enigmatic Visions

2009

“Guatemalan artist Karla Higueros is self-taught. One utters that fact not as an excuse but as a marvel, for her body of work shows the originality of vision and controls of tone and technique evincing a discipline not always on display on the canvases of even the highly trained.

Her artworks are like rectangular windows into dense, otherworldly landscapes full of driving wind and each with its own unique, all-encompassing light. She achieves these images mostly through the mixture of acrylics and sand, carefully considering and then attacking her canvas with a thoroughness that Jackson Pollock would recognize.

My paintings achieve their own life that I can sense when I use sand, which passes on to me its natural flow and movements, such as in sand dunes and in river beds, reports Higueros. These natural movements in my paintings are not forced or compelled; they simply are a translation of the harmony that exists between the colors, the sand, the canvas, and my spirit.”
