About

"Whale in a Sea of Symbols" is an original ink and charcoal on handmade amate paper by Miguel Castro Leñero. The artist initialed the piece lower right. This piece features an abstracted whale floating through space with abstract symbols. 23 3/8" x 15 3/4" Elegant and elementary compositions of a reduced chromatic sense, sensual surfaces and a magisterial treatment of the painting define to the Mexican artist Miguel Castro Leñero like one of the main painters of their generation. How he said to Mario Kaim Palaces, Miguel Castro Leñero nourishes his plastic universe with elaborated icons or, taking control of graphical representations of animals, clouds, tools or plants that find in documents and books of diverse origin. This “eager hunter for representations of the things of the world” is reducing to the images to his more elementary necessity of representation, approaching the archetype that resides in the origins, the place from where is possible to extend the apparent chaos that reigns in the surface and to show itself to the order that produces it. Castro Leñero has exposed in galleries and museums around the world. In the City of Mexico its work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Rufino Tamayo, the Museum of Art Cheek Gil and in center Cultural Contemporary Art. Also it is in the Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca, the Metropolitan Museum of New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey. He is winning of numerous prizes including the Biennials of Ibero-America and Painting Rufino Tamayo among others.
