Carlos Estrada-Vega's paintings consist of tiny square pegs of wood, usually no larger than one inch in diameter, which are individually painted with pure pigment and then attached with a small imbedded magnet on the back to a square steel plate. Intuitively arranging these tiny canvases of pigment, he explores subtleties of texture and color, yielding compositions that awaken the deep associative, sensual impact of color. Born in Chihuahua, Mexico and educated in California, Carlos now lives and works in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
