Through the landscape a Matanzas creator expresses the feelings he feels for the city in which he lives.

Taking as reference the “Canto a Matanzas” by the renowned poet Carilda Oliver Labra (who died in 2018), part of one of the proposals of “Intermittent Rivers” of the XIII Biennial of Havana in the City of the Bridges.

“Matanzas´ elegy” by the creator Enrique Casas Castellanos, proposes, through various scenes in which different geographical locations of this Cuban city are represented, a fresh look at contemporary art from academic painting.

This time through 4 pieces executed in oil on canvas with the exquisite use of the palette knife, technique that enables the realization of a variety of textures both visual and tactile; its creator offers us a testimony from his personal and professional vision in an attempt to pay a fair tribute to his hometown.

With the use of the panoramic plane Casas Castellanos tries to provoke the sensation of observing a photograph of each of the landscapes represented with a diversity of nuances that can be welcomed by the spectators who attend the exhibition.

The works are exhibited at the former Palace of Justice, the main venue for the most important visual arts event in Cuba.

A selection of their works can also be appreciated in his profile of the community of creators of Artecru.
