Catalogue Note

"Toledo is not a painter, a sketcher, a ceramicist or a sculptor, he probably isn't even an artist - in the usual sense of the word. He is a universe of shapes and traditions that are incessantly being transformed, and that also transform everything within their reach." 

Evodio Escalante in Exh. Cat. Nohra Haime Gallery, Francisco Toledo Paintings and Watercolors 1960-1989, 1990, n.p.
