Exhibiting Artists

  • Jose A. Toirac  (+)

    Biography : Jose Angel Toirac was born in Guantanamo, Cuba in 1966. He attended the 23 y 12 Elemental School of Art, the San Alejandro Academy and the Superior Institute of Art, all in Havana, Cuba.

    Exhibition : Toirac’s work has been included in many landmark exhibitions and has exhibited extensively in several countries, both individually and as part of collective exhibitions.
    His pieces can be found in collections such as the National Museum of Fine Arts, Havana, Cuba; the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York City; the Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (CAAM), Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain; the Arizona State University Art Museum (ASU) , Tempe, Arizona; the Ludwig Forum, Aachen, Germany; the Rubell Family Collection, Miami, Florida; The Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence, Rhode Island; the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California; the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas; and the Museé des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, Québec, Canada, among others.

    Detailed Description : Toirac often seek inspiration in the past as a way to bring home his point referencing a present situation. He frequently includes the use of documents and images, both historical and artistic, mostly but not exclusively, from Cuban national records and archives. He bring out fragments of history that can be subject to revision, and by deconstructing it he confront its official ‘reading’ in a subtle way, presenting the facts under a new light. He is very interested in the way that history has been manipulated to reinforce a given idea. His main source of inspiration, which is his country’s political history, is endless, mostly due to the manipulative use of history by the state. He is constantly questioning the way that collective memory is ‘constructed’ by fabricating ‘supporting evidence’ such as photos, to ‘facts’ or by hiding information. The artist point out how the history of Cuba during these last decades would be rewritten once the political order changes and many ‘new’ historical facts surface.

  • Jose Manuel Fors  (+)

    Biography : Jose Manuel Fors was born in 1956 in Havana, Cuba. He attended the San Alejandro Academy and the Institute of Museology, both in Havana, Cuba. Fors has exhibited internationally in the United States, Spain and Japan. His work can be found at the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles); Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles); The Museum of Fine Arts (Houston); The Museum of Fine Arts Havana and at Fundacion Museo de Bellas Artes (Caracas, Venezuela)among others.

    Detailed Description : Fors was a member of the legendary Volumen I (Volume I), and participated in their first exhibition in 1981 with an installation. During the Eighties, Fors produced installations that were ground-breaking for the Cuban context, and these are perhaps his best known works. Working with natural materials, such as leaves, was a challenge at a time, when something like that was not generally considered art in his country. His installations and other works of this period leaned towards a more conceptual approach. Instead of the universal and trite symbols of time, Fors chose decadence, as a metaphoric image through his dried leaves accumulations to render the passage of time. This was the backbone of his first solo exhibition titled Acumulaciones (Accumulations) in 1983. In those early years, he was engaged in exploring the concept of the passage of time and the evocative power of memory, and these installations proved to be the ideal visual solutions. His work has always revolved around memory in one way or another, either through his photographs or his installations. When he began to exhibit in the late Seventies, photography was far from being his technique of choice. He was trained as a painter and his excursions into photography began when he had to photograph some of his installations. He liked the effect and from then on photography became part of the creative process for him.

    Detailed Description : His works show the influence of paradigmatic artists such as Schnabel, Baselitz, Kiefer, and Goya. Quintana did not have a rapid rise in the national art scene of Cuba. One reason for this was that as a painter he traveled along alternative paths and did not participate in collective projects. He was a kind of renegade “underground” artist. His pictorial works include disturbing codes and discourses, as well as an almost obsessive interest in bearing witness to the offensive passages that show the violence and the filth of everyday life. He usually takes classic historical art scenes to represent daily conflicts, and his tendency to use a palette of solid colors adds a symbolic character to his work, which is full of cultural references.

    Detailed Description : Despite her youth, her work is eagerly sought and she exhibits in over a dozen solo and group exhibitions each year. Her work has generated considerable interest. Described as ‘a smart young feminist influenced by contemporary media culture, plying the waters of relationships, sexuality, and identity with wit, humor and more than a little kitsch’, this is an artist who is highly accomplished as a printmaker and who engages with tensions in young Cuban society today. Each work created by Reyes has a story to tell and she challenges the viewer to look beyond the playful humor she employs to reflect on the deeper relationships expressed in each work. This socially conscious artist has treated a number of themes, including in a recent series of graphite drawings entitled Crisis, the conflictual relationships involving in creating art. In another series of textured printworks entitled Bluebloods she offers social and political reflections on Cuba’s youngest generation and its relationship with the past. Popular imagery is employed in thought-provoking ways in several of her series. This body of work draws on images from the world of international advertising to question the social conditioning that shapes attitudes to women in society and to challenge the constructs of gender.

  • Jorge Rios  (+)

    Biography : Jorge Rios (b. 1988, Cuba) is a contemporary artist who works mainly on Painting and Drawing. He graduated from San Alejandro’s Fine Arts Academy in 2007. After a year working at the conservation and restoration department of the Cultural Heritage Office of Havana, he assumes the position of Painting and Drawing professor at the San Alejandro’s Academy where he took the duty of Chairman of the Latin American Department until 2010 when he quits the pedagogical work to focus entirely on his artistic career.

    Exhibition : His first solo exhibition comes in 2011 with the show Living is Easy with Eyes Closed. In this exhibition Rios explored through the artistic manipulation of the residual images visualized in the brain after we close our eyes, the idea of resignation, submission and negation as both, a critic to the social environment of the communist regime in Cuba and a comment to the ontological incapacity of human beings to transform and affect reality. A similar topic would follow his next exhibition at the 11th Havana Biennale: Ode to my Generation in a more satiric tone, consisted on a series of paintings about the flamingo’s pond at the local zoo of Havana. After this show, he abandons the contextual and social subjects and focus only on some more universal and philosophical motifs. Examples of this are exhibitions like The Flies at García Squared Contemporary in 2015 and more recently Cellar Door, at Cevor Art Gallery,where he investigates the dynamics between banality and beauty and their significance within the aesthetical experience. Jorge Rios lives and works in Miami, Florida.

    Detailed Description : The work of Jorge Rios transcends the flatness of ordinary visual language reaching the subtlety, ambivalence and complexity that we perceive more clearly like in other art forms such as music or poetry. Rios tries to establish through his art a link between the individual experience of reality and the totality of existence. Whether you call it God, the Truth, the Idea,the Spirit, the Da-sein, the Being, or the Nothingness… . In other words, “art for me has the mission of redeeming the being out of the mundanity of the human condition, by stimulating what is divine, universal and eternal in it.” “My interest in painting emerges from a personal connection with the materiality of the medium itself, its physical qualities and possibilities. Also because of the particular relationship that exists between a painting and its existence in time. The timelessness of visual representation, compared to other temporal art forms, is its most significant property. The contrast between the stillness of a painting and our very existence within time, enhance our very awareness of temporality not only as an inevitable precondition of existence, but more importantly, as an ontological premise. Clouds in that sense, represent for me, the ultimate paradigm of ephemerality and impermanence, while at the same time of beauty and sublimity.”

    Artist's Documents:

  • Oscar Bony  (+)

    Biography : Oscar Bony (1941–2002) was an avant-garde artist known for his innovative and daring work. Born in Posadas, in the northern province of Misiones, he trained at Buenos Aires's prestigious Instituto Torcuato di Tella in the 1960s. Bony moved to Milan after Argentina's military coup in 1976, returning to Argentina only after the end of the dictatorship, in 1988. His work ranged from painting to live installations to video, finally focusing primarily on photography towards the end of his life. His most famous work is La familia obrera (Blue-collar family, 1968), an installation which consisted of an actual working-class family seated on a pedestal. Considered subversive, it was closed down by the police. First executed for the influential exhibition Experiencias '68 at the Instituto Torcuato Di Tella, the work was recreated in a 2004 exhibit at the Houston Museum of Modern Art. Bony's work was the subject of a retrospective, "Oscar Bony: el Mago," at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, from November 2007 to February 2008.

    Exhibition : Bony was a very active artist who exhibited his work often. He was known for his He presented many solo exhibitions and his pieces were included in several collective exhibitions. His work can be found as part of the collections of important museums and institutions such as Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, Argentina; Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Museo Castagnino (MACRO), Rosario, Argentina; Fundación Federico Jorge Klemm, Argentina; and Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Belgium.

    Detailed Description : Early on his career Bony introduced anti-establishment conceptual works, starting with “La Familia Obrera” (The Working Family) in 1968, when he tested the limits of what could be art, by placing an actual family on view at the Instituto Di Tella of Buenos Aires. Later on, in the early 90s, he produced what would be his best known work, a series of impressive photographs behind glass with holes made with bullets from a 9 mm pistol. These series conveys the impact of political violence and death at a personal level, in pieces like Kriminal, The Divine Light, and The Bad Light, all self-portraits of the artist. He was also commenting on its effect at a social level with other images of public displays of discontent such as Manifestacion (Protest), or views of poor neighborhoods and its inhabitants. The actual production process worked as a catharsis for the artist, who after creating an image would proceed to shoot it in strategic places. According to Bony, his hands were sweaty, but he was calm and focused.

    Detailed Description : "Mariani is a conceptual painter. His work is a meditation on perfection and harmony - past, present and future. It is not enough for him to present to the world simply a glimpse of his own private vision. Instead, he offers an alternative mode of thought, to be used by all who seek refuge from mass-media induced mediocrity and cynicism... He uses his dazzling craftsmanship to address the most advanced aesthetic problems of today. His work involves complex issues including reconciliations of past with present, memory with loss, and life with death...In his work, Mariani strives for heightened consciousness, and for a greater understanding of the dimensions, not only of space, but also of time." -David Ebony, Art in America

  • Louise Nevelson  (+)

    Biography : Louise Nevelson (September 23, 1899 – April 17, 1988) was an American sculptor known for her monumental, monochromatic, wooden wall pieces and outdoor sculptures. Born in the Poltava Governorate of the Russian Empire (present-day Ukraine), she emigrated with her family to the United States in the early 20th century. Nevelson learned English at school, as she spoke Yiddish at home. When Nevelson was developing her style, many of her artistic colleagues – Alexander Calder, David Smith, Theodore Roszak – were welding metal to create their large-scale sculptures. Nevelson decided to go in the opposite direction, exploring the streets for inspiration and finding it in wood. Nevelson's most notable sculptures are her walls; wooden, wall-like collage driven reliefs consisting of multiple boxes and compartments that hold abstract shapes and found objects from chair legs to balusters. Nevelson described these immersive sculptures as "environments". The wooden pieces were also cast-off scraps, pieces found in the streets of New York. While Marcel Duchamp caused uproar with his Fountain, which was not accepted as "art" at the time of its release due to Duchamp's attempt to mask the urinals true form, Nevelson took found objects and by spray painting them she disguised them of their actual use or meaning. Nevelson called herself "the original recycler" owing to her extensive use of discarded objects, and credited Pablo Picasso for "giving us the cube" that served as the groundwork for her cubist-style sculpture. She found strong influence in Picasso and Hofmann's cubist ideals, describing the Cubist movement as "one of the greatest awarenesses that the human mind has ever come to." She also found influence in Native American and Mayan art, dreams, the cosmos and archetypes. A less known but very strong influence was that of Joaquín Torres García, a Uruguayan artist who "in the United States was probably underrated precisely because he was so influential; Adolph Gottli
