The beauty of the Terrible

Smile, You Are in San Miguel

By Karen Ocampo

Santiago Corral, a native artist of Mexico City, delighted viewers at Kunthshaus Gallery with his collection of paintings, In Her World, curated by Margaret Failoni. With excellent technique, Corral surprises with a subtle violence in his artwork. Broadly speaking, in part of his work we can see how children perceive reality through their mobile devices, particulary violence.

For the artist, a work of art has to excel for the subject, color, and composition; the process is  key to getting a good result. According to Corral, every detail and every stroke should reflect the artist’s strength and emotionality. Although some viewers perceive his work as hyperrealism, he considers himself a surrealist. He explains: “In any artwork, the artist’s drama should be visible and tangible … in hyperrealism, this is not perceiveable.”To Corral, every pictorial piece should reflect the conflict, tensions and decay of each artist.
