César Barberena ,was born in 1962 in Granada,Nicaragua. Attended the school of fine Arts, Granada, the National school of Arts,Managua,Nicaragua. He has exhibited in the Washington metropolitan area since 1990. His paintings are include in many private and public collections.
César Barberena is placid and cotemplative in his trek. He is not so much desirous to reach his destination as he is following the process to take him from one epiphanous moment to the next. He is driven by the journey and not the journey’s end, authoring his existence one meticulous brushstroke at a time.
Barberena is a painter who thinks whith his brush. It is dificult to ditinguish what he thinks from what he sees, the reason his paintings and the naked bodies are blackened and yet the paintings glow. The light comes from within them. You have to look the source of light to look at Barberena’s pictures. It is the signature of these paintings, a little like a sorce of love.
