Past and present are played in their universe of images: the unique and the everyday, the mythical is decontextualized and invades the apparently real. Rafael Cauduro's painting proposes a transfigured vision of objects and closed environment from where emerge. It is amazement what underlies in each evoked scenes, gathered by the look and memory in the same instant, in the manner of collage, new relationships supported by a dreamlike logic are generated. It is a work which reflects a continued willingness to reinterpret the architectural space and the valuation of manufactured object in the twentieth century, as essential elements in the collaboration of a personal visual narrative around death, woman, time or Christian iconography.

Representative current known as hyperrealism in plastic timeliness of Mexico, Rafael Cauduro's work has received international recognition in numerous exhibitions. (Source: By Rafael Tovar in "Cauduro Rafael, De angels, crucifixes, skulls and other calamities")
