Humberto Castro: Chasing WavesAugust 30, 2021 - January 1, 2022
Humberto Castro was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1957. He attended the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes de San Alejandro and the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana. His work mixes figures with lyrical and conceptual elements resulting in a new art form known as Neo-figuration. Thematically, it deals with the social and psychological challenges of humankind and incorporates historical and social-cultural myths. His artistic production can be divided into three distinctive periods. The first one corresponds to the work produced in Havana, Cuba; the second one includes paintings and drawings made while living in Paris, France; and the third and most recent one features the work produced after moving to the United States. Each period features different series which incorporate specific themes using different symbols and materials.View Exhibit
Philippe Attie: Inner ColorsAugust 30, 2021 - January 1, 2022
Philippe Attie was born in Seguin, Haiti, in 1986. At the young age of twelve, he began teaching himself how to paint. By the time he was sixteen, he had earned an apprenticeship with renowned master Ralph Allen. He was later mentored by artist Richard Barbot. Under their direction, his passion for painting grew even stronger, and he eventually developed his own style. Attie’s work is defined by the relationship between the realistic figure and the ground of gestural abstraction. He works primarily with acrylics and oil on canvas. His subjects are meticulously depicted in states of contemplation and repose and enveloped by a psychological atmosphere built up by transparent layers of soft color and hints of expressionist forms.View Exhibit
