The Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery presents for the second time in Dominican Republic the Cuban artist Carlos Estevez, with an elegant and captivating show Intimate Floods on Thursday, June 21, 2012, at 8:00 p.m.
Carlos Estevez, (Havana, 1969) renowned Cuban-born artist living in Miami, interprets the world of objects and culture through the prism of spirituality and reflections about life. Most of his artwork invites to reflect on a man who is cosmos, who thinks and acts continuously from that transcendent perspective in an effort to understand the universe. The majority of Estevez’s works look for "traces of the soul" or "abode of the spirit" on any object or action. For Estevez, all kinds of cosmogonies are important, philosophies that focus on human existence, anthropological thinking, conceptions of Afro-Cuban culture, esotericism, magic, and even the scientific and technological achievements, imbued with symbolic thinking.
His pieces are part of permanent collections: National Museum of Fine Arts, Havana, Cuba; Bronx Museum, New York, USA; Museum of Fine Art, Boston, MA, USA; Arizona State University Art Museum, Arizona, USA; Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) Long Beach, CA. USA, among others.
This time the artist presents eleven pieces, made in mixed media, mostly devoted to questions and existential conflicts of mankind, based primarily on the large universal constants: happiness, anxiety, pain, love, hate, life and death and especially the idea of inner journey, the route that is bounded by birth and death.
The exhibition will be open to the public until next July 21, 2012.
