Joseph Lofton and his Expressionism

Pure, bright and contrasting colors emerge from the works of Joseph Lofton in the retrospective exhibition entitled “V decades in art”, presented at the Borda Gardens, in the Benito Juarez section.

“This New York artist has a playful side that he engages with creatively to produce a fantasy”, explains Gabriela Dumay, the show’s curator. The work of Joseph Lofton, done between 1956 and 2004, shows images in which music and the human landscape are the protagonists. “Music is the most abstract form of expression,” the artist says. He is currently dedicating his time to creating, “my works are a collage, but my project is on canvas, not on paper.”
