Antonio Sanz de la Fuente

Burgos, Spain, 1951-2013

Abstract painter trained at the San Fernando Higher School of Fine Arts, expanding his knowledge and technique in Maastricht (Netherlands) and graduating in Fine Arts in Madrid.

He was also Professor of Plastic Arts and Design at the School of Art of Burgos, alternating this professional facet as Professor of Artistic Drawing-Color with the pictorial and also the director of the center.

His works were technically defined by the use of diverse materials and disciplines: from oil on linen to large-scale works, to photographic support, paper, newspaper clippings that make up small collages and, in its last stage, methacrylate, wood and even lead superimposed on the canvas in different sizes and thicknesses, evolving in a constant search for balance through play between volumes and gaps.

Endless horizontal strokes shaped the artist's pictorial language. In a first time the reference were drawings of a symbolic realism that little has been left behind in a constant evolution. Sanz de la Fuente did not intend to tell anything specific in his paintings, however, he tried to place the viewer before them and that this produced feelings of free understanding. In some of his works there is a junction with the landscape, especially urban, with clear references to the outside environment and also to the intimate environment.
