Washington in the studio with totem The Amazing World of Washington Ledesma is filled with the joy of Life and Creation In whatever form it takes, Washington Ledesma's work evokes a whimsical Eden, a symbolic universe where Giotto's angels fly by masked as birds and fertile, three breasted Goddesses celebrate vitality, truth and freedom. The fixed eyes of his animals stare fearlessly at time from an ancient past transmitting Ledesma's loving gifts to the contemporary world - innocence, abundance, and the wonder of creation.

ANIMAL, BIRD, AMPHIBIAN AND REPTILE SCULPTURE

When Ledesma's lively creatures demanded to appear on their own forms, the artist's magical hands complied by sculpting birds, amphibians, mammals and reptiles. The three-dimensional work has led to yet another aspect of the mature artist's vision and Ledesma's ever simplified drawn lines show an increasing certainty and mastery of his art.
