Juan Tessi (b. 1974, Lima, Peru, lives and works in Buenos Aires) engages in an on-going exploration of pictorial language. He is fiercely committed to the medium of painting, investigating its internal tensions and relations: oil paint on primed versus raw linen; the canvas as body and paint as skin; line vis-a-vis color and paint; the borders of the canvas, its outside/inside.

“Figures in the Forest” is an example of those paintings by Juan Tessi which sit right at the border between figuration and abstraction, creating a suggestive mood.
