    "Throughout his career, Claudio Bravo has developed a unique mastery of light, tactility and atmosphere in his paintings and drawings. His works have long been noted for their fidelity to observed reality and their sensitivity to the reproduction of a psychological and emotional ambience. Bravo's art, in many instances, seems to straddle two worlds, that in which we exist and another, just lightly beyond our comprehension."

    Edward J. Sullivan, 1998.
