Beyond Eroticism by Cuban Artist Rocío García at CCE

May 24-Jun 24, 2018

CCEMiami presents the first solo show by Cuban artist Rocio Garcia, Beyond eroticism -curated by Elvia Rosa Castro- this exhibition is part of the program Out in the Tropics by FUNDarte. Conceived as a representative compilation of Garcia’s work, this show includes paintings from different career stages of the artist, coming since mid-1990s to the present.

The human body, eroticism, homoeroticism, and violence in Rocío’s paintings are a pretext, a linguistic alibi that may allow her to talk about the nature of power in its broadest sense.  Influenced by the sequential nature of film and comic strips, as well as her arsenal of imaginary musings, Rocío creates stories in which the plot unfolds subtly between one canvas and another, or in some cases, even within a single canvas, where various scenes converge and are defined at the same time.
