Catalogue Note

For a painter, pure colour exists, even though there are no “natural” colours!. They are an absolute and a virtual presence. Colours do not have a life independently from the painting as there are no musical notes if they are not played by an instrument. Was it Gauguin who said that he wanted his greens greener that those in nature? In Mercedes Pardo paintings, the colour stands out by its immaculateness. …/.. Pardo does not construct colourful shapes, she confronts the mystery of colour, its vibration, its inner force.
