Víctor Díaz has always held three elements
close to him: birth, life, and an acknowledgement
of imminent death. These elements form the
basis of his perspective and, as such, influence
his life and art.
He understands that his birth gave him the
opportunity to create just as it created him, that
life is precious and must be experienced to be
able to fulfill that promise granted upon birth to
create, and that death will invariably cease his
creativity and allow history to judge him. With
these elements in mind, he forages out into
nature and tries to capture its essence, since
this, not the raw beauty or interesting
combination of colors, is what must continue and what is truly beautiful.
His representations of the coast do not simply capture beauty, they create it.
This is the signature of his work, others provide a different perspective on a
subject, some show an unseen sight, but he, he creates one. His manipulation of
light and time give his depictions a characteristic reserved to him alone. It is the
added component of life.
In his work, waves do not simply crash on the rocks, they caress them as flow
through their crevices and edges while producing an enamoring mist that seems
to surpass the image and obscure reason, leaving only the heart to translate the
colors into a surrealist image where the past and the present combine to evoke
a feeling of clarity and oneness with natures spirit.
