“My paintings are a reflection of who I am at this moment in time. Therefore, they are constantly changing as I grow as a person and as an artist. I am always perfecting my work and pursuing new ways to express myself and the world around me by painting seven days a week. It is my passion.
“My subject matter has always gravitated around horses. They have been closely related to my life. Horses have been amazing characters throughout history. Great heroes rode them to win battles and establish empires.”
Carlos Zerpabzueta originally studied architecture and uses that to his advantage in his artwork by purposefully containing his work within structures that he titles “Hyper-image Boxes.” These “Boxes” or “monitors” are intended to recall computer screens in that they are able to provide us with a plethora of information at a rapid pace. The eye is stimulated and immersed in multi-layered, hand-painted and printed acrylic that has been carefully placed throughout each work, generating a seemingly infinite perceptual and optical relationship between space and form.

“Creating the exhibition “Fifty” is my way of expressing my gratitude for the opportunity the United States has given me and my family to live in a strong country rich in history.”
