Additional Info:In addition to Cézanne’s artworks, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism proved to be very important influences for Gómez Mayorga’s style. He adopted the use of light and used it in his works of art, especially when working on landscapes and the volcanos of Mexico. Even though the themes are similar, each painting differs from the rest, as he painted the same location at different times, from different angles. He portrayed different views of the volcanoes, with and without lakes, one or two volcanoes, always imbued with his own emotions that help define the color palette and the essence itself of the work of art.
“Gómez Mayorga gives us the impression of a plastic artist that had an obsessive relationship with nature, a joy of living in it and feeling it, of coaxing its secrets from it, its rhythm and lights.” Hugo Covantes
