At first glance, it would be easy to mistake Argentine artist Gabriel Schiavina’s paintings for nature photographs. With impressive skill, Schiavina recreates the look of each texture and surface of the natural world. He excels at depicting water, giving it a depth and dimension that go beyond duplicating its surface.

That ability to go past mere realism lies in his handling of light and color. In his paintings, we are not just given a lifelike representation of the world the artist sees, we are also shown how light and color animate and transform that world.
