Renzo Sanchez-Silva’s metallic prints delve the mysterious vastness of the sea—a phenomenon which is as physically dangerous, beautiful, and desolate, as it is weighted with symbolic import. According to the artist, “Water and sunlight are the main elements that appear in my compositions. Blur and sharpness coexist to represent concurrent mental states of confusion and certainty.” More than studies, Sanchez-Silva uses what he terms in-camera effects generated through intentional movements to produce new moods, shapes and tonalities. All of this is overlaid on recreations of water in various states, which lends Sanchez-Silva’s works an emotional intensity which would not be possible in landscape works organized around a more static subject-matter.

Sanchez-Silva’s photographs congeal around the watery indeterminacy of the sea. Capturing the very real dynamics of water in its fluid state allows Sanchez-Silva to suggest hallucinatory figures (as well as cities and storms) using the ocean as his vehicle. The sea as rendered in Sanchez-Silva’s photographs is both an oasis and a mirage—like a desert it tantalizes travelers with alluring vistas that only exist in the eye of the beholder.
