Francisco Larios practices painting, open-concept drawing and the use of software to create two and three-dimensional visual environments. In his imaginary, the postmodern condition is achieved in terms that contemporary culture is the starting point for the elaboration of sceneries that manifest the return to sacred references, philosophical themes, and immemorial fabulations.
In Larios' work landscape is treated conceptually, sometimes, as the space where studies of the dreamlike, the bond between human beings and their surroundings, and the nature of objects develop; in other cases as the practice of graphic representation of mathematical, physical and musical principles which part from the idea of horizon as divisive line and as limit.
Larios production is a poetic, ironic and reflexive exploration on the state of our relationship with faith, will, and destiny.
