Fernando  Toledo

Location: Chile

"In my work, I seek the vital force of color, pure and illuminated like the windows in the old colonial churches that surrounded my childhood in the streets of Habana Vieja, (Cuba). At the same time I touch upon present-day subjects such as nostalgia, solitude, or individual freedom. I attempt to find hope, light … digging into human and divine areas, from before and after, it is my life experience, my natural instinct, everything manifested in the woman as a starting point, as a source of all creation, undoubtedly a personal fascination of mine… As a path, I am interested in spontaneity, passionate and free execution, figurative art, the uninhibited strokes of the paintbrush, choosing the lines and the color almost emulating stained-glass windows to consecrate the ordinary daily life represented, to make sacred those moments where we are truly ourselves, without social pressures or forming a self image, as simple as life itself”.

Muses

Fernando Toledo, Cuban artist, was inspired by the Greek muses to create a series of contemporary paintings.

He says:
“They visited me for nine days, one muse at a time. Every evening, without exchanging words, they appeared, like in a trance, exactly as they were… “
These paintings are a sample of notes on the small everyday life and divine experiences that filled those days …
