"Virtuosity permeates Denver artist Emilio Lobato's mid-career retrospective" –Denver Post
The Taylor Museum of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center is pleased to present Emilio Lobato: Mi Linda Soledad, the first retrospective of one of Colorado’s most prominent contemporary artists. This exhibition surveys Lobato’s nearly twenty-year career and presents more than sixty pieces, including mixed media works and monotypes. Mi Linda Soledad (My Beautiful Solitude) explores the aesthetic style and conceptual nature of Lobato’s work, as well as the interdisciplinary and cross-cultural influences that have distinguished his artistic practice. Lobato’s incorporation of diverse cultural and creative elements is represented by a series of objects, many of which the artist has collected over the years, ranging from contemporary art, Asian artifacts, and African masks to old books with texts in different languages and Rio Grande textiles.
