Antonio Guerrero is something of a prodigy in art. He has been painting almost as soon as he could hold a brush. He calls his latest artwork I Live on a Red Planet. “At the time of creation I visioned this door and when I entered everything was transformed in red. That is the reason I called it The RedPlanet. There, I fly without wings, I turn into energy and walk through infinite spaces, strange characters become alive with a surreal conscience.
The black holes are windows and doors to other dimensions, in this vast universe frequencies are visible and secret codes deciphered.” It is a region of space from which nothing, including light can escape. It is the result of the deformation of space and time caused by a very compact mass. There are points of no return.
In his paintings Guerrero sees the world as a cosmic stage for human activity. “I’m in the system like a computer programmer writing codes with my sketchbook and brushes, playing the critic, here to create and program the unconscious. Apart from all the trouble we cause ourselves, I believe we are immersed in a powerful and beautiful mystery. The fact of our existence is a great riddle to me.”
“In this planet everything is possible.” Shadows fall according to nature’s intent, trees grow from earth, and triangles refract light in a realistic manner. But all of that realism is just Antonio’s way of holding the scene together so that he could go on to upset our normal expectations of reality.
