This new production introduces a group of paintings in which the utilization of wood and other found objects are prominent. Specially, the wood from the dry, dead palm tree branch (yagua) is employed for shaping the forms and creating the atmosphere of the piece.
The textures and volumes of the ‘yagua’ are used as the foundation for creating an image. By burning it and sketching over its surface, using pencil, oil pastel and acrylic the different forms are shaped. The result is an intriguing view of portraits and landscapes degraded by the rough and fractured appearance of the material.
Is this view the reminiscence of the Caribbean landscapes? Or is it just the reaction to a decomposing city that is Havana? These open questions could be also the rhetoric of a fragile future.
