Castille is a place where the sun shines very brightly and the land is red and rich; where the color yellow takes over the countryside in the summertime and where trees reveal their various shades of color in autumn. This range of color that characterizes Castille’s different seasons marked Izquierdo forever.
Light is one of the key elements in Izquierdo’s painting; a natural, strong light that contributes feeling and emotion to the observation of Castillian landscapes. Warm colors are mixed for a clear purpose: to add light to such landscapes, a purpose that is beautifully accomplished. Color is another of Izquierdo’s key elements. His broad chromatic palette shows lively and warm colors which are used with great artistic strength.
The artist starts from a Castillian naturalist landscape and moves on to create a schematic composition, which in some of Izquierdo’s paintings becomes abstract landscape representations. Brush strokes are free and the composition falls apart into color-dominated levels, leading to an abstract landscape.
