Description:  
Eddy OchoaEddy Ochoa Guzmán might at first appear to be a photorealist, but one can see that his passion for nature supercedes the dehumanizing eye of the camera. He delights in nature and his works convey that love without the cold, unrelenting view of the photorealist. There is no harshness in his work, no severity, but instead an obsession with the lush greenery of Cuba. In fact, Ochoa tells us that he is love with every shade of green. Ochoa was born in Baracoa and carries with him his childhood recollection of the Yumuri River from the vantage point of Alto de Fuerte, the old Spanish fortress. He recounts that the immense river inspired both love and fear in him. That setting stays as his strongest memory and, even though he moved the images of his birthplace have never faded. Ochoa suffered from a serious illness which caused hi to be hospitalized for quite a while. He found inspiration for his series of Nocturnos (nocturnal landscapes). While lying there at night, he saw a lighthouse that illuminated one spot in the landscape and felt amazed that man could artificially light up just one part of an otherwise unseen vista. His Nocturnos evolved from this experience. These paintings evoke a sense of restlessness in us despite their apparent tranquility. The restlessness comes from the force of light within the darkness of the landscape. Ochoa searches for light and places it artificially in a spot that seems to come from a mystical place, maybe from behind the viewer, from an unknown place. This gives his Nocturnos a surreal luminosity and makes the paintings fluctuate between realism and mysticism. The charm of this technique lies in achieving the force of light within the darkness of the landscape.
