About

'In the beginning' is Fernando's 12th solo exhibition in the UK – he’s also exhibited throughout Europe and the USA in recent years. Its subject matches its title as Velazquez looks to beginnings; creation, geology, childhood and relationships. Bursts of light crack through valleys and reflect on tremendous oceans, eruptions envelop the landscape and, sometimes, there’s an unsettling clarity, reflective of hours spent staring out at the ocean on a starry night.

Velazquez's appreciation of light echoes that of a 19th-century landscapist, but there’s a contemporary flair. He layers and manipulates oil paint in earthy hues to create a semi-abstract whirlwind that errs on the fantastical – most of his paintings could easily be mistaken for the compositions of a contemporary Turner.
