Description

"In Reverón's paintings of the exhausting light of the shore where...perhaps only the sea rests with the mountains' shadows and the calcined trees—the artist confronts us with the limits of seeing and of what is seen: of seeing what is not seen; of seeing where nothing can be seen; of seeing what we see...His compositions are always on the margins of day: at dawn, vesperal or nocturnal, when things lose their edge. Even situated at the center of light, his paintings mirror the violent tropical brightness of the sun that is so intense it cannot be looked at." 

—Luis Pérez-Oramas, "Armando Reverón and Modern Art in Latin America" in Armando Reverón (exhibition catalogue), New York, The Museum of Modern Art, 2007, p. 90
