“The great tragedy of humanity is that we’re caught in metaphor. If the metaphor is really good, it points to the truth, but it is not the truth itself. So many of our problems come from a confusion of symbols with reality and that’s the key to understanding all of my work.”
Fernando Llosa is a painter, sculptor and photographer who’s work focuses on the reality of an undivided life. Llosa’s work is a reminder that human beings are connected and also dependent on not only one another but also on the Earth’s biosphere, all of which can be seen in his work. He was born in Arequipa, Peru and received his B.A. from Loyola University in Chicago. He now resides in Ithaca, NY and works with painter Kim Schrag.
