Jorge Rios makes paintings about fictional events that are by definition untraceable. For example: the first sunset, color, fire, silence, or morning. He produces this work to remind himself, and others, of the awesomeness and absurdity of existence. Because they’re not concrete and present in the world, the ideas belong to the realm of metaphysics, art’s most effective means of transmission.
