The exhibition proposal is part of the XXVI anniversary of Varadero Gallery.

“Patakíes”, is the title chosen by the Cuban creator Salomón (Jorge J Gutiérrez Salomón) to give name to his most recent personal exhibition inaugurated in the Varadero Gallery of the Cuban Fund of Cultural Property, located in the emblematic and world-famous Varadero resort, Matanzas, Cuba.

The network of situations through which human existence takes place as a social, natural and psychological process, the constant reinvention of making and shaping their art, the theme of the symbiosis of cultural and religious beliefs; They make up some of the issues that make up the pictorial discourse of the creator on this occasion.

Some mythical symbols – religious, cultural, national and political; such as the scribble (associated in the Yorubá religion with the deity Elegguá), the flag of Cuba and the colors that identify certain gods of Afro-Cuban religiosity, become protagonists of this new proposal, which according to its curator Lídice Sánchez: “It constitutes a transition from figuration to abstraction through the assimilation of conceptual elements of muralism, cubism and German expressionism.”

In this exhibition, Salomón returns to the use of vegetable fiber as a link and protagonist in itself of a visual coherence that ultimately achieves the cohesion of all the components that make up each of the proposed scenes; to the appropriation of some elements of Art Povera and the use of sharp brushstrokes that give life to strong black lines.

Composed of 4 installations (made of fibers); and 10 paintings executed mostly in techniques such as frottipia, acrylic, oil, all on canvas, in some of them its creator decides to bet on the mixture technique to give life to their creations.

Those who visit the exhibition space will be able to find novel and interesting works with a marked aesthetic – artistic representation in the contemporary visual arts panorama.

All these compositions constitute the sketches of the next sculptures that the contemporary artist will make, whose final destination will be his location in public places of the city of Matanzas with the intention of achieving an interaction between society and art.

More detailed information about the career of this creator, those interested can find it in the Artecru`s community.
