Victor Diaz

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 nature’s spirit.
