Miguel Loredo

To paint is for me to choose a way to fix a personal vision of reality on a flat surface. The suggestion of other dimensions is part of the outcome obtained and is empowered to embody the many areas of the spirit as well as of the memory and of the prophesy. The surfaces in which I paint become sometimes a battle field for the fight between flesh(sarx) and spirit(pneuma). Is like a chessboard full of aesthetic(forma)and spiritual challenges. Is as it is my own life.

I prepare surfaces(mostly paper or stretched linen or canvas)to receive the trip of the light from dawn to dusk. In this changing light I produce images ready to transmit their inner and formal sense and to receive the personal world of the viewer. Forms dissolve,light becomes line and light flies.

To me there is not a great difference between figurative and abstract painting. I always paint what I see. But what I see is the beauty of the forms as an inspiration to create a set of new significant and beautiful objects representing themselves and ready to establish a relationship of intimacy with whoever gets in touch with them.

I admire many painters: Leonardo's drawings,Wifredo Lam's dynamics; the sensual and spiritual message of Paul Gauguin,the elegance of Botticelli; the pure and inviting color of Joseph Marioni.
I am a painter of brush and hand: a painter of visual memories. But I pay attention to the artists of the camera and to any form of new art. I am always immersed in a learning experience.
