Mexican artist, Julio C. Garcia invites the viewers of his captivating paintings to travel to inner people-scapes where his disassembled characters possess an energy that emanates from the very canvas itself. He describes his work as surrealistic, with ancient overtones. Self-taught Garcia is guided by instinct and emotion. His paintings are rich with human images drifting through time and space revealing their essence as both endearing and numinous. Layered paint adds texture and a three-dimensional quality. Garcia was raised on a Cochimi Indian reservation and attributes the unpolluted nature of his upbringing to his quest to express his spirituality. The unique quality of Garcia's work transports the viewer beyond the Surrealist dream-world and into a moment when the truth can step forward. We are at once beautiful and proud, and at once disassembled and broken.
