Miguel Osuna’s new series reveals his love for experimentation with media and with the exploration that furthers his creative practice. In The Bends, Osuna uproots the membranes of his earlier work, SPIN, liberating them from the tension on the canvas. His calligraphy is pulled apart, exposing a magnetism and a more robust intimacy with the surface. Osuna’s decompressed work sighs with unexpected emotion, emitting an almost audible, albeit discordant rhythm of brush strokes. The Bends offers an urgently meaningful subject matter for Osuna, high energy and motion blur the rigorous painterly passion for depth, but the reduction reveals his innate biological signature.
