The event combined dance and painting in the same scene.
The event combined on this occasion two different languages but that are part of the identity and culture of this island: the folkloric dance rhythms and the codes of the plastic arts.
Through the execution of two pieces, the audience can appreciate the entire creative process of two artists with different ways of doing, seeing and understanding the wide universe of painting.
Daniel Rodríguez Ramírez made a collage (100 x 65 cm) where he combined the cardboard, the ink, and the acrylic to give life to his work: “Oshun”; a very singular and contemporary representation of the deity of the Afro-Cuban pantheon, through the syncretism of the venerated Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre; patroness of the Greater Antilles.
For his part Adrián Socorro captured on his canvas of 90 x 60cm a portrait of Teresa Polledo (personality to whom the dance event is dedicated) with the use of acrylic. A work executed with a mastery of the artist’s own result of years of experience and professional studies.
What happened last night in the city of Matanzas can be considered “a kind of live painting” if you want to see or understand that way.
