Lázaro Niebla is an appreciative artist: he went to Trinidad to study and founded a family there. There he lives and works, there he meets and constructs characters. There he recovers and transforms the pieces of objects that accompanied the existence of ordinary men and women along centuries: hundreds of faces have looked inside through his shutters, countless acting beings have trespassed, inward and outward, his lintels.
So his work, which honors and dignifies the people from Trinidad, is also a tribute to the artisans who in past times carved the wood to build doors and windows. And also, of course, a contribution to the very diverse paths that art takes in its stubborn task of creating meaning, of embellishing life, of nourishing the soul.
