Agustin Fernandez – Book pre-order

The Metamorphosis of Experience

Release date November 1, 2012

At the time of his death in 2006, Agustin Fernandez ranked among Cuba’s most outstanding artists. Defying simple categorization, today his work is most recognizable for its ambiguous and precariously balanced forms, erotic overtones, surreal juxtapositions, and metallic palette.

The image shown here is from the CANY files- 2001 Exhibit.

Hard Light- The work of Emilio Sanchez

This much anticipated and beautifully compiled monograph is the first to bring to light the prolific career and life of this imaginative and spirited 20th-century Cuban American artist.

Although barely acknowledged in his native country in the aftermath of the Cuban Revolution, Sanchez dedicated much of his career to recreating the effects of Cuba’s sun-soaked colors onto canvas in his New York City studios. This volume collects Sanchez’s acclaimed paintings, watercolors, and drawings, which are celebrated for their architectural forms, brilliant palettes, hard lines, and striking use of light and shadow. Although never fully abandoning figuration, Sanchez’s paintings reflect a dialogue with North American post War abstraction, as well as Latin American geometric abstraction. In addition to Cuban street scenes, Sanchez painted the architecture of New York, the Caribbean and North Africa, including still lifes, and land- and seascapes throughout.

Offering diverse perspectives on this multifaceted painter, three compelling essays discuss Sanchez’s work—from its relevance to aspects of modernism in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the U.S., to a unique glimpse into his private world and art through the lens of queer theory and aesthetics. This prismatic presentation gives readers a fresh look at this unique artist’s vision while firmly positioning Sanchez within the discourse on 20th-century art history.

Cuban Artists Across the Diaspora

By Andrea O’Reilly Herrera

As an island—a geographical space with mutable and porous borders—Cuba has never been a fixed cultural, political, or geographical entity. Migration and exile have always informed the Cuban experience, and loss and displacement have figured as central preoccupations among Cuban artists and intellectuals……
