"The trajectory of our journey in this life is marked by a beginning and an end. Everything expands and contracts, everything comes and goes, everything is born and returns to essence."
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.
