From Apr 11th through May 23rd, 2009.  Panamerican Art Projects. Miami Art GalleriesThe Mystery of Migrations, Carlos Estevez’s new solo exhibition explores the process of migrations, philosophically, existentially and physically. Carlos approaches this theme from the individual and collective points of view. His work speaks of the implications of the migration process, and its ultimate consequential complexity within the human being. The concept of transformation is very apparent in Carlos’ oeuvre. He addresses it not only as physical change by depicting organic forms that have morphed into machines, but also as a process of intuitive, emotional growth as a result of physical adaptation. Utilizing elements such as wings to illustrate the  henomenon of transformation, and utilizing traditional forms of transportation, such as trains and ships, Carlos makes a clear and direct representation of the effects of a voyage, whether it is a mass migration or a sentimental journey of personal exploration.

This group of paintings marks a new stage in Carlos’ trajectory as an artist. While he continues with the general trend of his previous work, he delves deeper into his symbolic use of metaphorical images. He imbues his figures with mechanical details that breakdown the human condition into numerical formulas. Carlos creates a personal cosmogony, an imaginary world populated by mystical creatures. The Mystery of Migrations is his own voyage, and in a way, our own as well.

In the project room the gallery is presenting the exhibition Two Visions Diptychs: One Lens featuring works by photographers Gory and Adrian Lopez. The exhibition explores the visions of father and son and their examination of several cities. Gory (Rogelio Lopez Marin), an important Cuban photographer, shares his camera with his son Adrian Lopez for the first time, the result being a juxtaposition of the way a father and son perceive the world. Although the photographs are executed with different techniques (Gory favored a color image while Adrian opted for the traditional black and white) a unique dialogue arises: a private conversation between father and son.

Kcho and Cuban Collective. From Mar 2nd through Apr 4th, 2009.  Panamerican Art Projects. Miami Art GalleriesPanamerican Art Projects presents a solo exhibition by Cuban artist Kcho (Alexis Leyva Machado). Internationally recognized by his iconic installations of found objects, Kcho has placed himself among the leading contemporary artists. Since he began to emerge in the art scene his work has kept a minimalist approach, showing a profound respect for the objects that he brings into his pieces. Very often he would integrate found or already-made objects to other elements created just for the work. The result is a coherent ‘object’ that seems to be meant to be that way. Sometimes he would recycle materials such as wood pieces, collected from the seacoasts, and make his sculptures with them, giving the impression of already-made objects. (more…)

Two views: From Oct 25th through Nov 22nd, 2008.  Panamerican Art Projects. Miami Art GalleriesIn this exhibition, Panamerican Art Projects is presenting the work of two contemporary Cuban painters: Pedro Pablo Oliva and Rene Francisco Rodriguez, whose work is a direct result of their environment. These two artists are from two different generations, which undoubtedly influences their perception. Their views about social circumstances differ, and they take their personal histories as a reference and source of inspiration. Pedro Pablo (Pinar del Rio, Cuba, 1949) offers a more intimate perspective while Rene Francisco (Holguin, Cuba, 1960) explores the concept of the multitudes and their impact within society. (more…)

Reaching Beyond. From Oct 13th through Nov 20th, 2007.

Panamerican Art Projects. Miami GalleriesReaching Beyond at Panamerican Art Projects is an exhibition showcasing three artists reaching beyond their psychological space. Santiago Porter's series on buildings seems, at first glance, to be an admiration for architecture, when in fact it is a testimony of violence, the actual memory of an event. He is recording images of places where violent acts took place against Argentinean society. So beside the beautiful image of the building, there is a haunting sense of loss, an emptiness which is part of the work. In spite of them being color photographs, the sobriety of the choice of colors give the same feeling as black and white works, in other words, color is not a distraction in the image. (more…)
