"Flat, frontal, with no concern for perspective or horizon to ground the viewer, Arturo's paintings combine figure, text, contemporary and historic iconic imagery gleaned from past and present. Disparate objects appear as if floating on air, arbitrarily positioned in a playful, collaged manner with no regard for scale. They hint at life's absurdities and injustices with a certain optimistic cynicism, wry humor and irony.
