The photographs in this series register sudden glitches or gaps in transmission in the unrelenting traffic of media images. They are of television advertisements during those intervals in which the signal is interrupted and the emitted image breaks up, fragmenting until nearly disintegrating. What remains is a trail of digital data, a wake of drifting fragments and vestiges of images that retain some trace of that which has already precipitously disappeared. In these photographs, I try to capture and document the digital trail left behind by an image in movement, its ephemeral trajectory from the recognizable to the abstract. From the visual detritus emerge new signifiers that evoke other subjectivities, other discourses, and other more static and contemplative temporalities. On being severed and extracted from their referents, the images are deactivated and emptied of their content and original purpose. In their estrangement, they engender new forms, a new visual syntax created with the intention of disrupting the intended order of representation and mechanisms of persuasion.

GORY: Notes for a Retrospective, at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

From November 21, 2015 to January 16, 2016

Opening Reception: November 21, 7:00pm

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera y Willy Castellanos)

Aluna Art Foundation
1393 S.W. 1st. Street
Miami Fl. 33135

The notion that Art History is a theoretical and iconographic narrative where its construction – and deconstruction – can and should pass, given by the tension amongst the diverse modes of hegemony that captures its account, was vital for the conception of the exhibition by “Rogelio López Marín, “Gory”: Notes for a Retrospective”. As such, Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera y Willy Castellanos) makes a merited lengthy homage, to one of the pioneers of contemporary art in Cuba, owner of a vision that is as much personal as irreducible, and whose decisive contribution to art and photography – in the island and in the continent -, deserves to be re-dimensioned.

“Metallic”, a solo exhibition of works by Jorge Enrique at Waltman Ortega Fine Art, Miami

November 14 – December 16, 2015

Opening: November 14, 3-7 p.m


Waltman Ortega Fine Art
 2233 N.W. 2nd Avenue,
Miami, FL 33127 

In the most recent works by Jorge Enrique, the idea of beauty is at the center of the artist’s practice. While Enrique’s artwork of the last two decades communicated the irony that minimalist and abstract works could actually represent the deconstruction of an unforgiving cacophonous urban environment, and the gritty “truth” of graffitied texts and images could not be trusted, beauty in Enrique’s work has always been present.

Drawn to the intellectual spareness of abstraction and conceptualism, Enrique nevertheless uses a wide range of media – drawing, painting, silkscreen, monoprints, layered lifted images, sculpture and installation. And Enrique’s practice is very much concerned with materials shaping wood, sheet metal, paper, paint, epoxy, and resin into complex objects that undermine the ordinariness of their materials. These works are deliberate palimpsests – artworks whose history can be seen through the eroded exposure of under layers, visible by erasing, abrading, scraping and layering. The complex physicality of Enrique’s surfaces recalls ideas of age, decay, re-use, hidden images, and layers of meaning.

Carlos Estévez: CELESTIAL TRAVELER, at Frost Art Museum, Miami

Sept. 12 through Jan. 3, 2016

Frost Art Museum
10975 SW 17th Street,
Miami, FL 33199

The Frost Art Museum welcomed artists to display a compilation of their best work, from giant urban-style tapestries to a collection of Everglades landscape paintings.

One of the more unique galleries, and a main attraction for the museum, is the “Celestial Traveler” exhibition by Carlos Estevez, a contemporary Cuban painter and an experimental mixed media artist.

The exhibit showcases an eclectic collection of different forms of artwork that he has worked on for years as he experimented with expressing different thoughts on the universe, religion, emotions and other topics. Viewers are provoked to think on an existential level, trying to guess the meanings behind Estevez’s intricate and symbolic pieces.

Rafael Lopez-Ramos: CHROMATIC APORIAS, at MOCA Proyect Gallery, North Miami

September, 19 2015   7-9pm

Museum of Contemporary Art
North Miami
Joan Lehman Building
770 NE 125th Street
North Miami, Florida 33161


In Chromatic Aporias the artist includes realistic renderings of tropical fruits paraphrasing the gaze of colonial Art; the syncretism of Afro-Cuban religious symbols and Catholic images; and the Revolution’s propaganda iconography. Now he adds typical Americana popular culture characters, and esoteric symbols related to the American political tradition. The carnivalesque mixture of such dissimilar narratives may connote the cultural, philosophical and political paradoxes faced by the Cuban soul today, in a contemporary reenactment of the Aristotelian concept of Aporia: the equality of contrary conclusions.

Jorge Sanchez: AREAS THAT ARE, at 6th Street Container, Miami

September 18th, 2015

6-9 pm

6th Street Container
1155 (rear) SW 6th Street
Miami, FL 33130


On Friday, September 18th, Jorge Sanchez (BFA ’13) will open a new solo exhibition at 6th Street ContainerAreas That Are include Sanchez’s photographs that highlight South Florida’s rapid urban development.

Jorge Sanchez wrote the following statement to describe Areas That Are:

Urban development in South Florida is growing with ferocious velocity. This, unfortunately, has been extended to areas that are environmentally sensitive, which will have adverse impact. [T]housands of acres of vacant or unused land [are] within the county’s boundaries. I strenuously believe that our resources can be used in wiser and environmentally conscious ways. This can be achieved by rezoning more land from restricted commercial use, to mixed residential-commercial use; also, by lifting some existing arbitrary building height restrictions, and building more mixed-income developments. Other cities and counties around the country have successfully applied these solutions when faced with similar challenges.

Gustavo Acosta: “Timeline”, at Latin American Masters Art Gallery, Santa Monica, CA

September 12 – October 31, 2015

Reception for the Artist: Saturday, September 12, 2015, 6 – 8 PM

Latin American Masters Art Gallery
2525 Michigan Ave E2,
Santa Monica, CA 90404

Latin American Masters is pleased to present, Timeline, an exhibition of recent paintings by Gustavo Acosta (Cuba, b. 1958). Acosta’s Timeline paintings feature the neo-romantic architecture of a seemingly abandoned city. Acosta’s treatment of surface, particularly the staining and layering of color, reinforce an awareness of time’s imprint. Yet, his paintings have an enigmatic, A-temporal quality, as if haunted by history. Rather than ghost towns, they appear as constructions from a parallel world that can never be entered, where threedimensional space flows seamlessly into two-dimensional geometry.

Cesar Santos: “Drawings,” at Waltman Ortega Fine Art, Miami

Sept. 10 – Oct. 6, 2015

Waltman Ortega Fine Art
2233 N.W. 2nd Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Waltman Ortega Fine Art presents “Drawings”, a solo exhibition of works by Cesar Santos.

A riff from his typically traditional style, in this series the artist adds to his classically technical approach with child-like drawings that reveal a more nuanced, subconscious rendering of his subjects.

Rubén Torres Llorca in exhibit “A Russian, A Chinese, and a Cuban” at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

September 5 –  October 15, 2015

Aluna Art Foundation
1393 SW 1st Street
Miami FL 33135

The exhibition features works by the artists Alex Yuzdon, Guo Jian, and Rubén Torres LLorca. Curated by Adriana Herrera and Willy Castellanos, the show brings images of fraternity from China (Guo Jian), the celluloid Hollywood heroines and heroes by the Cuban Ruben Torres Llorca; and the deconstruction of epic stories coming from Soviet Union (Alex Yudzon).

The exhibition goes around questions related to XXI century History, pointing out History itself as a severe source of critics related to utopias.

Hamlet Lavastida: Prophylactic Life, at Dot Fiftyone Gallery, Miami

August 22 – October 10, 2015

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 20, 2015

7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Dot Fiftyone Gallery 
187 NW 27 Street -
Wynwood Arts District,
Miami FL 33127

Curator: Janet Batet  

Hamlet Lavastida’s sophisticated artistic proposal focuses on the field of history, ideology and collective memory. The artist is interested in the diagnosis and the reconstruction of a particular iconographic memory associated with the ideological notion of “prophylaxis” wielded by the Cuban Revolution of 1959 as an indoctrination tool aimed at the conversion of the individual in the long awaited archetype of the “New Man”.

By the term “prophylactic work” is known in Cuba the ideological prevention, and educational guidance designed to ensure the full integration of the individual into the realm of the Socialist construction project.

Circumscribed to the period 1960-1990, this body of work, a sort of post structuralism scrutiny, centers on the review of official documents and images directly associated with the imagery of prevention, orientation, and coercion.

Revision: Angel Delgado at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

April 18th to June 27th, 2015

Aluna Art Foundation
1393 S.W. 1st. Street
Miami Fl. 33135

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective

Aluna Art Foundation inaugurates a new headquarter in Little Havana, Miami, on April 18th of 2015, conceived as a space for art and culture to generate new dynamics in the sector and in the city.

Delgado incorporates sculptures and drawings from the last decade, with media such as soaps, trays or sheets derived from the practices of survival from prison. It also presents serigraphs inspired by an alphabet invented then and large paintings about forms of oppression in a dizzying and globalized world but corroded social indifference. This show will take place with the release of several exhibitions dedicated to the concept of Parrhesia, a term which in ancient Greek meant “speak the truth,”- and the contradictions between censorship and the exercise of freedom of thought in artistic creation and literary.

Glexis Novoa – Painting on Canvas, at Juan Ruiz Galeria, Miami

Thursday, 16 October, 2014 to Saturday, 22 November, 2014

301 NW 28th Street
Miami, Florida 33127

Painting on Canvas is Cuban artist’s Glexis Novoa’s first solo exhibition at Juan Ruiz Gallery, specifically noteworthy for the following two aspects:  the artist’s revisiting of an early period interrupted by exile in the mid 1990s and the context in which the work was created, Havana, where the artist recently set up a studio after a twenty-year hiatus.  Novoa’s return to the formal qualities of the Etapa Práctica [the Practical Stage] and to the specificity of the Cuban context reveals poignant aspects of contemporary Cuban art today and the artist’s place in it.

Hernan Bas exhibit: Youth and uncertainty rendered confidently


From Miami Herald

The early works of one of the great artistic talents to emerge from Miami in the past few years are the subject of a new solo exhibition at YoungArts, “New Perfumes, Larger Blossoms, Pleasures Untasted: Hernan Bas and the Natural World.”

Bas, a YoungArts graduate in Visual Arts, was one of the first artists to gain international recognition from the recent arts renaissance in Miami. Working predominantly in painting, he became known for his depictions of adolescence inspired by classical imagery and literary movements.

He maintains residences in Miami and Detroit. “I spend a good deal of time in Detroit, but I have a studio in Miami as well,” he wrote. “Detroit offered affordable spaces that are increasingly hard to come by in Miami, and it’s nice to get away from the craziness that living here can stir up.”

Early in his career, the artist caught the attention of major gallerists and collectors, including Donald and Mera Rubell, who have since acquired a large body of his work and staged shows drawing from their collection — including the one at YoungArts.

Cristina Lei Rodriguez in group show “GOLD”, at Bass Museum of Art, Miami

August 8, 2014 - January 11, 2015

Bass Museum of Art
2100 Collins Avenue,
Miami Beach,  FL 33139 

In 1961 the conceptual artist Piero Manzoni rattled the art world by canning his own feces and making them available for sale, pricing the cans by their weight in exchange for the current value of gold. The following year, in which the Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe dies, Andy Warhol screened the image of the starlet over painted canvases, including golden ones, immortalizing Monroe and establishing her image as one of the most recognized artworks in the world. In 1964, the cult classic film Goldfinger was released and became one of the most iconic James Bond films ever made. The movie unambiguously associated gold with power, glamour but also danger. In parallel, archeological gold was also finding its way into the culture of the masses: from 1961 to 1981 Tutankhamen Treasures and The Treasures of Tutankhamun toured North America and the western hemisphere for the first time, becoming some of the most attended museum exhibits to this day.
Presented in conjunction with the Bass Museum of Art’s 50th anniversary GOLD includes painting, sculpture, video, photography, and installation.

Leonel Matheu: Crossroads of the Dystopia at The Frost Art Museum, Miami

JULY 12 – SEPTEMBER 14, 2014

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum
10975 SW 17th Street
Miami, FL, 33199

Cuban-born artist Leonel Matheu has been a prominent figure on the national and international arts scene for over twenty years. Crossroads of the Dystopia is Matheu’s first major survey exhibition. His works range from colored pencil drawings, ink on paper, oil on canvas, to video, multimedia and public installations. Curated by Janet Batet, the exhibition presents more than 20 years of work and provides a comprehensive overview of Matheu’s most distinctive imagery. In describing his body of work, curator Batet says: “If a single symbol could summarize the iconic work of Leonel Matheu, it would be the enigmatic head-a sort of dome-that appears as a constant throughout his work. It serves as a self-portrait and collective portrayal of a nation marked by diaspora and dystopia. This symbol embodies the symptoms and stigma of contemporary global society. With a masterful use of the synthetic graphic design language, Matheu builds up a personal and yet universal iconography that he interweaves in intimate fables of our daily existence. Spirituality, technology, passion, solitude, dreams, chimeras, and deceptions are at the core of his thoughtful body of work.”

Ramón Williams was born in Havana, Cuba is 1969. He graduated from the Instituto Superior pedagógico in La Habana with a MasterDegree in Visual Arts in 1992. Between spring and summer of 1996, Ramón Williams exhibited in Havana two groups of paintings: Imágenes de la enciclopedia and La mar estuvo serena. By the end of the same year Williams emigrated to Miami, Florida. Living and working in this city during the last eighteen years, his artistic endeavors yielded to the exploration in the realms of photography,video and computer animation. Walls and contentions barriers all over the city have been subject to a sort of poetic CSI lens in Williams’s hands, where spontaneous perception and dedicated capture of traces interweaves with his skills for computer generated imagery, and his fondness for oriental calligraphy, stream of consciousness writers …and some psychiatry lab tests. As a comeback to the days of pigments (somehow aconsequence and turnaround of the lens, the image in movement, and the 3D world), Scaping Back titles a selection of Ramon Williams recent Miami roadscape paintings that will be exhibited at Farside Gallery on June 7th, 2014, for the first time in the USA.

LABOR: A Survey of Works by Angel Vapor, at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

April 11 – May 17, 2014

Curated by Ricardo Pau-Llosa

Aluna Art Foundation
172-B West Flagler St.
Miami, Fl. 33130

The title of this exhibition of works by Angel Vapor (b. 1970 in Cuba, in US since 1999), Labor, emphasizes themes central to the artist’s visual thinking: the importance of craft, the focus on the everyday working man (industrial laborer, farmer, soldier, fire-fighter, among others), and the fusion of time-honored techniques in art with the intellectual rigors of conceptualism. The title also evokes the act of giving birth. All the exacting activities of human psyche—from the menial to the transcendent (samurai and meditating monks are recurring themes, as well) share equal status in Vapor’s epic view of labor as the primary joy, not the burden, of life. Mere intellectual play on aesthetic notions, onerous technicism in the name of skill, and brute toil are not, by themselves, art because they are not Labor—the activity that unifies thought, beauty, discipline, and skill and thus the only consistent and trustworthy path to personal fulfillment. Only through the fusion and intersection of disciplines and activities falsely assumed to be disparate can the imagination create original works of art whose meaning and significance may be genuinely thought of as universal.

“We’re proud to be the first Miami museum to present the work of these incredible local artists and the street art movement, both pieces of South Florida’s history,” says Stuart Chase, Museum Director and Chief Operating Officer. “Aside from a few pieces sitting in private collections, art of this kind has been conspicuously absent from museums in Miami until now.” Street art in Miami has exploded in popularity in recent years, with the Wynwood neighborhood becoming one of the area’s major attractions for both tourists and locals.
