As Camacho told us, “One could say that my paintings are architecture being manifested in a two-dimensional way. But viewed from the opposite perspective, comparing painting to architecture, the paintings have the same concepts of composition, proportion and harmony as an architectural design.”
In his paintings “Divertimiento” and “La Luz Final,” Camacho shows the history, time elapsed and footprint of construction, as well as the textures, lights and shades, coloring and architecture. They represent a moment in time of something that may no longer exist.
A more melancholy piece, “El Turbio Fundadero,” is conceptually different from some of his architectural paintings. Here, Camacho captures the movement of the water, reflections and vibrations, but also abandonment, desolation and the passage of time.
Over the years, Camacho has adapted an ability to identify, read and feel the motivations for painting, whether it’s the intense play of light and shadow, the drama of a landscape or perhaps the unnoticed detail. Ultimately he shows us the possibilities are endless, as he organizes and studies every goal in a subject, one at a time, to create a series.
