The modesty of a virtuous
As if it were the only one in the world. Aurelio Rodríguez does what he knows well: painting.
And he understands very well what he paints. The first thing one feels when contemplating his portraits is the intrinsic presence of the subjects, with all their misgivings and shortcomings.
You can feel the tenderness, the torment, the happiness, the heartbreak and the anxiety in those eyes which are looking at you from the light and shade of a lifetime, from the human character, which is the only definite reality.
