From the experimental exploration of traditional painting genres such as portrait, interior painting, and landscape; a nostalgia for spaces activated through memory persists in Quezada’s work. These are imaginary places where everyday objects emerge while illustrating the artist’s own circumstance within a context of simple emotions; such as solitude. These mid- and large-sized paintings refer to a figurative language, which stems from the need of creating shapes from reality as it questions the circumstances which it portrays until the context steps into the background. As well as casting aside the gravitas towards the main subject in order to create a subjective space full of new meanings.
A Dominican national, Quezada studied fine arts at Chavón La Escuela de Diseño. He is also a BFA from New York’s Parsons The New School. His work has been present in numerous exhibitions and biennials both in the Dominican Republic and the U.S.—such as Cooper Square Hotel in New York—as well as in the Italian “Fabrica” catalog. Quezada currently resides in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
