“Red ”is a series of drawings on canvas where the indisputable protagonist is the color red and its symbolic charge; red and nudity. Here, Diego Díaz shows proof of his technical mastery and uses color to create an erotic and passionate atmosphere. The format and spatial composition of each piece, as is frequent in this artist, acquire a singular importance: tiny, exiled to a corner of the work, a human figure abstracts itself from the sea of red that surrounds it. At another extreme, a couple indulges in embrace, in a Martian world where everyone seems to elude the viewer’s gaze. They are organic portraits of desire that account for secret journeys, and of their intensity. Introspections that hide the blood its strength and color.
