"These works exemplify Gustavo Oviedo’s artistic style with large-scale paintings of organic forms straight from the depths of the ocean’s cosmic consciousness. Hours of navigating South Florida’s waterways breathe a sense of calm among the colorful shapes that populate this series. Painted forms interact with ease. Lines are texture. A fluorescent pop explosion against a contrasting sea of tranquility released onto canvas. The calm and steadfastness of an explorer, both at sea and in the studio, distilled with a painter’s brush in exquisite colors, offers a cathartic release from city life for us all. These paintings vivid and alive invite us into Gustavo’s worldly visions and they remind us of how much wonder there is in the world if we choose to explore it."
