Cordero’s paintings, the mismatch between texts and images, resembles the constant state of distraction we live in: we look at something while thinking of something else at the same time. The main intention of this text, given its visual fragmentation, is to slow down the process of looking, disrupting the initial reading of the picture plane between layers of text and image.
When broken down by images, Cordero shows us what he calls “the three ranges”: one, is a wide-open space (landscapes or general scenery); the second, gathers things and people we are surrounded by (objects light, shadows, portraits, interiors) and the third, is a metaphorized representation of the quantum reality (energy particles, vibration); that is, what we can’t see but only feel, what we and everything else is made of.
