Jorge Nava's unique art originates and evolves from abstraction and its cornerstones are to be found in the relationship between form, colour and gesture as well as in the overlapping between the pictorial and the poetic.
His language has evolved from a primary phase, where the artistic process was based on observation, intuition and improvisation as a way to materialize sensitive experiences, to the current stage of consolidation of a more formal language, in which the organic forms of the previous period have been replaced by geometric figures (circles and squares) and the basic elements of graphic expression (points and lines) which have been erected as the nuclear elements of his discourse along with a narrow range of colours, usually two (bicromía).
Greatly influenced by American abstract expressionism, Jorge Nava’s paintings are an elaborate work of artistic synthesis, where philosophy, poetry and contemplation are interwoven in an increasingly refined language that, regardless of superfluous elements, configures a unique space where gestures and forms enable a long-lasting and pleasant aesthetic experience.
"I think that every human being must learn to pause and contemplate his/her surroundings and stop thinking for a while. I’m just trying to foster that contemplative gaze."
