Like his role model René Magritte, Rojas presents the sky with clearly defined contours. It becomes a blank canvas that Rojas seeks to repurpose. While Magritte worked figuratively, Rojas designs geometric shapes and, aesthetically speaking, moves in the direction of abstraction.
The artist’s work is also defined by his manipulation of perspective and our spatial perceptions. Of all mediums, photography is expected to provide an authentic reflection of reality, but Rojas breaks our expectations. The way they are arranged, the triangles and trapezoids seem to become their very own spatial structures. Or rather, our brain interprets them as such. In the end, Antonio Rojas makes us look inward at the mechanisms of human vision.
