In my paintings I seek to capture the idea of the instantaneous and the invisible of everyday life. I feel like a pictorial photographer, I think of the works as frames of a cinematographic sequence. I am interested in painting the essence of the moment, what is not seen, capturing what is in people sitting, lying down, sleeping, thinking, sad, that intimacy is what attracts me, in each painting I try to immortalize the sensation that runs through the scene.


When I paint, the action of  comes to me, immersing myself in water, in the wateriness of the painting itself. What separates the surface of the water and the surface of the air, when one is submerged, is a two-dimensional and abstract separation surface that cannot be seen but can be measured. This point of union between one surface and another is what I am interested in working on: between figuration and geometrization, between coherence and incoherence. I think of it as a healing act, both immersing yourself in the water and immersing yourself in the paint.


The brazen display of beauty
María Lightowler -art curator-.


No plan is a plan, and this is how Daniela Achoyan's paintings begin. 
Trained in graphic design and with the expertise that only comes from years of experience in the training of the eye, this purpose of letting intuition flow and giving space to improvisation arises because the strategy is already part of the artist's own work, before any rationalization of the process. 
Rarely is it possible to witness such a fierce and passionate aesthetic contest as on the surface of each of Achoyan's works, where abstraction and figuration, emptiness and saturation, silence and noise, among other binomials, fight it out with impunity. 


The brushstroke is not loose, but fluid. It follows its own path and circles around a composition that contains itself. The colors are combined and certain planes of color - very well dosed - give a formal approach to the scene that is fresh and free.

Achoyan's palette moves in a wide arc, although it is bounded by a specific direction that is not left to chance. However, the artist gives the color a reasonable freedom that allows it to move as naturally as the process requires. It is obvious that the time is dedicated to observation, so that the execution of each decision taken is sufficiently forceful. It is not an expressionist process, but a balanced method between desire and reflection. 

Daniela Achoyan's paintings are a testimony of resistance, emerging unscathed from the historical challenges to which the history of art has subjected the medium since the end of the 19th century. Her work, like a complex and exquisite language, boldly flaunts beauty and is born of real and immaterial forces.
