Valencia, Venezuela-based artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez creates extraordinary paintings that are so hyperrealistic, they seem to come to life and flow right off the canvas. Submerged in azure pools of water, his subjects float serenely, swim gracefully, splash about, or surface for air with a spray of bubbles. With each stroke of his paintbrush, Nuñez captures every last detail—subtle shades of blue, sparkling glimmers of light, distortions of bodies under the water, myriads of ripples and currents, and much more.
Nuñez adds another dimension to the lifelike paintings with playful snapshots of himself interacting with his creations. Through his Instagram, the artist frequently shares glimpses of his works-in-progress as he poses with them, pretending to hold onto the subjects’ arms or greet the swimmers as they break the water’s surface for air. With the breathtaking level of hyperrealism in his works, it often becomes difficult to distinguish Nuñez from his paintings, speaking to his incredible skills as an artist.
Explosion Cabinet, Look-Again Collection - Sebastian Errazuriz
With just a few simple pulls, this simple-looking maple wood cabinet quickly ‘explodes’ into a complex geometric form; with a single central seam that beckons the touch of the user. In moments the intricate series of rails slide apart and reveal the true nature of the product.
"A beautiful, surprising, and confounding work that represents the playful conceit of the master cabinet maker showing off" - Rachel Delphia, exhibition curator.
