This remarkable painting is a deviation from the more traditional paintings Horacio Cardozo offers. This one is interesting in the sense that it seems to depict probability. We each start off on the path of life with only a burning desire to find the place that we belong, the people we will love and self-fulfillment.
The bike, powered by our willingness to endure, hurls us down a road we all must take. Whether we deviate from that path is a matter of where the heart is not where the mind is fixated. The bike is the perfect symbol for the flawless transitions we make on our journey back home.
Horacio Cardozo just seems to have this uncanny ability to capture moments that only exist between times and between what is and what isn’t. The details of his oil portrait are lush and decadent without being overbearing or too complex.
This boat painting takes me to a place where I simply am. I don’t know where I am or where I’m going. The only thing I know is that I am tiny amongst an endless aqueous giant and I’m perfectly okay with that. This painting reminds me of absolute serenity, peace- the ultimate calm. The beautiful gradient on the majestic waters is just as breathtaking as the skies beyond it.
Every aspect of Oranges and Pomegranates is illustrated with patient attention to detail. The reflections of orange slices on the knife blade, the bright golden contours of pulp, the red glow of each delicate pomegranate seed and their shadows strewn across the wooden table – all rendered with particular care.
This delicious ensemble is supported by a cast of finely composed porcelain that leaves the viewer with an impression of spatial depth and weight. Treated to a metaphor for both the bitter and sweet parts of life, the viewer’s mouth waters at the stark depictions of these traditional and exotic fruits.
