Manolo Quejido

"Un esbozo sobre el pintor hipertélico"

Fernando Castro Florez

The exhibition of Quejido takes us into some paintings where the relations between painter and model are again an essential part of the author's aesthetic nature, rooted in a dense dimension of time which allow to play with memory and forgetfulness.

Some paintings are full of reference that respond to exact planes, connect with the world and with the painting itself, extracting all its power from it.

A SKETCH OF THE HYPERBOLIC PAINTER

FERNANDO CASTRO FLÓREZ

In the painting of Manolo Quejido, a tone of cubist representation and feminine incarnation of resounding forms is read, denoting a taste for distortion and banal monumentalization.

Complaint warns a drive toward a subject that accumulates a prolonged experience of culture and an intensive memory that has to do with the question of the anguish of influences. This lucid creator directs, permanently, his gaze to the historical horror, confronting it with the present.
