C. Olmedo shuffles the magic of everyday life with subtle strokes and full ease within a novel language in terms of his unique still lifes that he masterfully and surprisingly fills with just one object, located at one end, while the rest of the piece exudes a suggestive chromatic atmosphere. Even its formats add personality within its rectangular presentations, elongated and culminated on more than one occasion with wired threads that embrace the support, thus preventing all the strength and mystery that its contents gather from escaping.
