Francisco Sierra

b. 1977 in Santiago de Chile, Chile / Lives and works in Cotterd, Switzerland

Francisco Sierra’s work considers the question of how contemporary figurative painting could look. He paints the reality of things faithfully, but his works’ chosen subjects rarely represent that which they may first be taken for. He is interested in the transformation of apparent clarity into something new and enigmatic. Sierra is occupied by the pitfalls of contemporary photographic reproduction and the transformative potential of painting, involving surrealistic and conceptual approaches.
