N. Joaquín Acosta

 
Artist
Bergisch Gladbach
Germany
The focus of Acosta's artistic career is on death, dread, agony, despair, anxiety, melancholy and nothingness in distorted and emotionally-charged depictions of the human condition. Contemplating always that life begins on the other side of despair, his themes tend to focus, also, on the underbelly of life as he attempts to limn the eternal struggle between the individual and his own existence; i.e, man's internal struggle with his inability to live or die; man's existence and it's eternal ambiguity; paradox.

Bio

I am a writer and contemporary artist with a focus on exploring existence and the human condition--primarily from a certain philosophical perspective. As an artist, I firmly believe that the work of art is critical in conveying a keen sense of ethical responsibility. Additionally, I also believe that art is the link between the metaphysical and the ethical dimensions in human freedom. As such, I am compelled to question myself, asking: How will I be in the world as a being-in-the-world? And, with respect to the viewer, by disclosing specific elements of the human condition, I am, in essence, asking that viewer 'What values are directing your life right now?'
