The central theme of my work is the still life. It has always been about the relationship between the object or subject and me. From the time of learning, to the time of exploring, to the time of a defined line of work, the constant was the still subject. This continues whether I was dealing with Identity, migration, or the human condition. It was all done through the still life.

Still life has always been considered a minor genre, the stepchild of high art, despite its great tradition and such practitioners as Caravaggio, Chardin, and Cezanne. But what really is the difference between a still life and portrait? The subject, that’s all. Yet fruits on a table are dismissed for their lack of heroism. We revere the human, but not the earth. The fruit on the table is there for us, not us for them. This is the genesis of the work, and so I embark in the study of the disclaimed, the marginalized. To search in the opposite direction, against the current, one also ends up analyzing human beliefs and their implications. Our perception of nature manifests in our behavior; it resounds in our actions. And so I enter this natural world to observe this life form that lives in still—nature’s trees, fruits and flowers all in their static, statuesque, wise existence.

Sinuhe Vega seems to reach “diversity and complexity opening the page of his painting experimenting the surreal of everyday objects, the laboratory of work on the journey, the plot of the piece, re-entering imagination without an accurate definition, because to define means to limit, to re-enter into formulas.

As the artist states; “My current work includes two constants: theatrics and an explicit rejection of the two-dimensional plane. … Also about creating, reproducing, and re-appropriating my work, maximizing the full potential of each piece. As an image travels from medium to medium, it takes on a different life in each, multiplying in a vivid way, creating infinite possibilities, and thereby revoking all notions of a “final” product.”

In Sinuhe Vegas polymorphous artistic, creative path, the first chapter of his artistic process touches the last. As if exercising art as a sort of swivel, a kind of calisthenics routine to mentally slip beyond the information and visual excesses to escape the strait-jacket of daily stereotypes and art contemporary art mythologies.

A touch, a fleeting glance, a crossroads of mixed media, a well-thought presence of color and forms, where its content and symbols always end up founding the place of multiplicity and plurality, where each figure goes into disguise, in a reinvention of identities.
In Sinuhe Vegas artistic journey, a thing is always another thing, an image that not only establishes the idea of a surreal assemblage but the notion of displacement of the senses. What Baudrillard would convey as “of images that flash in continuous energy exchanges.” The experience, that the artist describes as “…the dialogue between mediums fuels enriches, and stitches the layers of these characters and their stories. I see myself as neither the author nor the narrator of this tale, but as a journalist documenting the creative process of the artist and the lives of majestic individuals, and hopefully create a fuller sensory experience when viewers encounter the work.”

In his work nothing is negated or destroyed, however, nothing is in the place it supposed to be, there where the eye and the memory believe and aspire it to be. It is a creative maneuver elaborated and imagined in the languages of painting, drawing, theater, collage, photography and video, in a creative world that moves in a sort of “gravity absence,” multidirectional, trans-scenic.

For Sinuhe Vega, painting and creating art seems a kind of cosmic diagram. Things and objects always possess their vitality, their enchantment capable of distressing the reaction of the intellect beyond the bounds of functional logic. Within this context, his inventory of visual stimuli does not presuppose any hierarchy, other than that determined by the space and media of his work, which acts as a synoptic screen, so its parts unveil the arcane. Objects, places, characters and symbols in his works are assumed not as much for their evocative force as for their communicative capacity, once reinvented.

Perhaps the artist intends to leave us in a state of silent inquiry in the face of illusory secrets. There endures his unpredictable magic.
