Lois Lambert Gallery opens an exhibition of works by Edel Bordón
Siempre Tres en el Bar. Oil on canvas, 51” x 76.25”.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Edel Bordón’s “Crowds and a Touch of Distinction” series is defined by the need to understand and express one’s individual identity within the context of a clamoring society. This recent series oscillates between the individual’s experience and how those individuals amass into a collective, which acts as a different entity altogether. “The Crowd”, as Edel refers to it, demonstrates how a group of people can shed their individual perspectives and become easily manipulated by the persuasion of a group, a mentality prominent in the polarized world today.

Edel’s portraits capture the human form and their detachment from reality. “The Crowd” is characterized by simple outlines of people compressed together with a single element with which to interact. These elements create a dialogue with “The Crowd” about the risks, difficulties and uncertainties of existence. The doors, windows, drains, and ledges are all commentary on the risks in life that guide and spur the course of human existence.

Edel primarily approaches his paintings with a stream of consciousness rather than a concrete idea that has to be materialized. He does not execute preliminary sketch; he uses an experimental technique with diluted oils to mix a wash similar to watercolor in transparency. This creates a subdued color palette for expressing distance and detachment. In some works this palette is also paired with bold colors to emphasize contrast. Edel eventually becomes the spectator of his paintings rather than the author.

Edel Bordón received his Master’s Degree in Fine Art at the Superior Institute of Art and the National School of Art. Bordón has had solo exhibitions internationaly including Brazil, Germany, Mexico, US and Switzerland. Edel’s artwork can be found in the collection of Museum Beatriz Liaskosky in Zurich, the Museum of Finest Cuban Art Maximilian Reiss in Austria and the private collection of Michelle Wojcik in the US. Edel is a member of the National League of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC). Edel has been painting for the last 40 years and continues to work in Havana, Cuba.
