The realism of Jose Higuera

The strength of expression and the immense chromatic scope inherent to realism is what attracts my interest.  The struggle against time, against colour, against form and movement that I keep in a calm and continuous way trying to achieve that the reality forms part of the canvas as apposed to a simple photographic reproduction is what makes painting, in my case, the reason for my life as an artist.~Jose Higuera
