José Gómez-Sicre


“His work might be classified as hyperrealist or surrealist, but because of his specific interest in obtaining a transcendental meaning out of familiar, every day objects, it also falls well within the realm of magic realism… imagination and fantasy are given free play and in each of his works there is a touch of something new. Aquino’s drawing is exquisite; the pictorial elements are selected and depicted with unusual care; there is a delicate tonal unity in his color, which tends towards the neutral. In terms of its pure, plastic value, rarely does an artist demonstrate such an extraordinary capacity to handle all the elements of his medium with such success…”
