Lauren Amalia Redding, “Echar mis versos del alma (To Cast My Soul’s Verses),” 2017, silverpoint and silver leaf on gessoed panel, 20 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches

Although the practice of silverpoint is rare in the 21st century, there remains a specialized group of artists who still excel in this unforgiving medium, including Lauren Amalia Redding.

This October, Redding will showcase several of her delicate works at Menduiña Schneider Gallery in San Pedro, California. Drawing upon her Cuban heritage through memory and narrative, Redding employs silverpoint for its fleeting yet tangible qualities, creating portraits and figurative drawings with impressive detail. To complement her work in the gallery, Redding has also selected works by several Cuban masters.
