The young creator carries out their works with a deep social meaning.
Within the framework of the Fiesta del Mar 2018, Carlos Enríquez Gallery presented “Pantheon”, a set of 17 works by the artist of Santiago de Cuba Marvin Rodríguez Torres, a young exponent of photography, a practice that since the 19th century multiple followers in the historic capital of eastern Cuba.
In his career, the photographer has used both the snapshot and the studio portrait, which he exhibits on this occasion, in his eagerness to make a human cartography of the blackness in all the extension of the word, from the body itself to his inheritance cultural in its complex religious universe, its artifacts, the marks that everyday life leaves on its being.
The image filtered in appearance looks for the plastic effect but in reality it registers attitudes, essences, stories. It has been pointed out in his work the anthropological zeal that he demonstrates in these pieces without title and that work in a discursive whole and individually in the diverse faces of his characters, whose psychological expression he captures with mastery.
This exhibition can also be seen as part of his profiles at Artecru.com, as his most recent addition.
