To Build


The works of Alfonso Nieto are based on philosophical idealism. Their general effect is abstract imagination that fuses instinct and intellect. Purposely avoiding evident themes to irradiate complex reflections with surprising intensity, he allows a large degree of spontaneity in which marks emerge from or dissolve into the background. He manages to keep the energy and intensity level at a frantic pitch by means of bold strokes, contrasting colors and a textural richness to his surface. His content is color's physical presence.

A particularly evocative work is "To build." The large canvas bears intense reds, warm golds and cool purples that constitute an array of abstract possibilities that are grounded in fundamentals.

Nieto earned his B.A. in Fine Arts from Universidad de Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Gto. He has exhibited worldwide in places as diverse as New York City, Houston, TX, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Guanajuato, Mexico, Nuremberg, Germany and Greensburg, PA. He earned a Painting Residency at the Vermont Studio in Johnson, VT, has taught several classes on the university level and was an active participant in the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Guanajuato, Gto. Mexico.
