About Cayetano Valenzuela

Right now in the series I am working on I am exploring ideas about death, magic and storytelling in America. My paintings depict figures against the backdrop of a stark quinticnetially american landscape or darkened rooms that conjure the mysterieous.

Whether it be heightened euphoria, a darkened sense of foreboding, sublime twilight, or an interprretation of the miraculous, real or imagined, I seek to analyzie the borderland between the old world of myth and the modern world of science.

The anachronistic space where the inexplicable and the fable are in discord with contemporary ideologies is a frontier that is narrowing in modern America.
