Jorge Lopez Pardo | LUZ PERDIDA

ARTIST'S STATEMENT ON THIS PIECE
"We are like beacons that once we have lost the light, the path to follow in life, we can find it again within us. There is an ever-present light that guides us, enlightens us and return lost light to us."
ABOUT JORGE LOPEZ PARDO
Born in Trinidad, but living and working in Havana, Jorge Lopez Pardo has exhibited his images of alienation in Cuba, Spain, Mexico, and Miami. He has won prizes and exhibited in prestigious art fairs. Painting and drawing isolated and sometimes suspended objects, often revealingly titled “Self-Portrait,” Lopez Pardo’s work obliquely captures the loneliness and sense of limbo— the neither here nor there— of living and working in contemporary Cuba. Using an exquisitely restrained palette and subject matter, there is a singular elegance and detail to the images that paradoxically speak not of beauty but of solitude.
