The exhibition IN FINITO by Carlos Quintana
at the Palazzo Loredan in Venice

At the Palazzo Loredan, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, the American Friends of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba are presenting Carlos Quintana: In Finito. 

A vast selection of enormous canvases, some measuring more than five metres, in addition to a group of mirrors by Quintana and architectural drawings.

The exhibition runs along the halls of Palazzo Loredan. Starting from the particular connotation of the building, whose library preserves volumes of scientific and humanistic themes, IN FINITO hybrid parallel and concomitant notions to propose a personal and inclusive perspective of contemporary man and his circumstances.

The place become a kind of workshop until July 29, 2019. Three rooms on the ground floor will host a collection of drawings and paintings on which the artist will intervene from the daily narratives of the work process in Venice. The work continues to “happen” while the exhibition is open to the public.

Quintana says he paints life stories; he believes in the spiritual benefit of art for human beings and advocates for freedom in the interpretation of visual works of art. His main references are Goya, Picasso and William Turner.

He is fascinated by the first’s so-called Black Paintings, the second’s ability to cover everything masterfully and the third’s watercolors of the fire of the Houses of Parliament which occurred in the first half of the nineteenth century.
