Mythic Paintings
Alvaro Cardona-Hine
April 18 - June 30, 1996

Though he has returned many times to the totemic mystery of the figure, for thirty years the world of nature has been the major source of Alvaro Cardona-Hines art. His canvases are saturated with the extraordinary changes of color and light surrounding Truchas, his northern New Mexico mountain village. He seldom paints plein-air, but directly from his studio, relying upon spontaneous imagination nourished by memory. His dominant images have been poetically muted evocations of earth and sky. Those who live with his paintings love their serenity of mood, their calming presences, and the mystical beauty of their color, not so much representing as actually being their own appearances.
