Carlos Estrada-Vega paints monochrome paintings arranged into large compositions. Each individual painting is not as important to Estrada-Vega as the labor of producing a large composition. Although finished and hung individually, each painting is only a part of a larger composition, much larger than the piece itself. Each piece is a hand made object: canvas stretched on wood; with colors mixed from pigments and mediums. Estrada-Vega's work is labor-intensive, repetitive and limited by the borders of the square. The process requires discipline. Color combinations are arranged by intuition, random selection and his own personal taste.
