About Madalena Lobao-Tello



I am a Portuguese visual artist and I live in Chile

Some time ago, when I was in Portugal, someone ask me to write what I thought of my artwork. This was what I wrote:

“Latitudes and Attitudes”
Latitude imposed

In me, there is also the spirit of the Portuguese sailors and adventurers.
It all starts with the journey imposed from the old world, the colonial Portugal to Mozambique, in Africa, full of black ethnicity , magic, shapes, textures, lights and a fantastic colorful splendor .The distance between my dormant origins and the sudden awakening does not exhaust the endless question: Who am I? I experiment this fabulous latitude, mixing it with other lives, other pains, with the purity of color and pattern of tiles they call Mestiza .

I built Attitudes from my Latitudes.
In these Latitudes, I searched the jungle light seeds that populate my paintings and ceramics.
In these Latitudes, I found the mestizo that inhabiting my works.

My Latitudes and Attitudes and the mix of color and pain that confronted me during this precursor of life determine my pursuit of art within the human being, specifically in the Universe of Being a Woman.
I am aware that in art, knowledge is to move, that art does not interpret, reveals, does not explain … shows the hidden side of the human being.
What I paint is therefore a journey inside the mind … in the “doors and windows of the soul”, female territories of connection with Life and Divinity.
These Latitudes, my attitudes and through Art I continued seeking the experiences of “Being a Woman”.

Africa in my Soul

In Mozambique, I grew and I developed as an artist and person, in a world where the suffering was, and is, ever-present - and yet is also a place full of colorful, fantastic forms, textures and lights. I fell in love more and more with those forms, colors and lights that opened before me in all their fullness and force. The interminable search for my identity drove me to return to Mozambique in 2004, where I remain for nearly a year. The extreme poverty of the people of Mozambique, the tremendous corruption of their leaders, indifferent to the suffering of people, the narcissism of the dominant class, the dirt that is present in all the corners, the violence and the fear that is ever-present in day to day life, drove me again to leave Mozambique. It was the encounter with my past and the end of a permanent homesickness of Africa. I go away sure of not wishing to belong to this reality and finally conscious of my quality as a citizen of the world.
