“Homage to an Austrian Painter”, tapestry with variations by Jeanne Waters Robledo, was the best piece of figurative expressionism of the entire group.”

“Towards a National Painting Salon Without  Selection”, Proceso, April 29, 1985

            “Teresa del Conde pointed out the day of the opening: ‘For the first time the wave of neoexpressionism is outstanding…which has come to us in the same tone from other countries. It is a pity that some of the best paintings in this style were not selected.

Another question that should be studied is the partial acceptance of what was sent. The fine regionalism of Jeanne Waters Robledo would have been reinforced if, next to ‘Two Women From Papantla at the Fair’ , ‘Esperanza Rebino and Her Friend’ had been placed.

            “Perhaps the most refined of the many and attractive works in ceramics are the two pieces sent from Jalapa by Jeanne Waters Robledo: ‘What Came Out of the Dunes, l and ll’, in sheets of high fired clay so thin they seemed to vibrate in the air.

"Of the images you've sent, I respond to Bat Angel the most. It seems to walk the line between representation and abstraction the best. As for the other pieces, they remind me a little of Chagall and of Paleolithic cave paintings. It might be interesting to spend some time looking at these (if you are not already) and maybe thinking about how mysticism/religion/mythology/chance function in your daily life. Are the images you stencil important to you? What if you combined some "found objects" that create unusual associations for you - just some ideas to think about. Stencils and graffiti are pretty "hot" now in the art scene, so maybe look at some of your contemporaries as well."
