Oil on linen, 48" x 36"
By Gabriela Moya
The paintings of Miguel Loredo are
an invitation to explore the essence of light and
the energy of the abstract. His paintings seem to
exist in an intimate and secret world that longs for
freedom and infinite space. His use of warm tones
are slashed by piercing streaks of radiance that evoke
a mysterious sense of purity. His drawings play with
the precision of pencil marks and the abstract nature
of ink. They are a poetic manifestation of gesture.
They represent the contrasting forces of nature in
an eloquent and elegant manner. There is comfort in
the simplicity of lines and forms which seem to depict
an undisturbed landscape. Loredo's work continues
to evolve and take on a language all its own. A sense
of conscious comfort seems to be the unifying element
in his aesthetic outcome.
Havana, Cuba, 1938
