Cuban Art Gina Pellón
White Silence
(Blanco Silencio)

Gina Pellón
2010
mixed media on canvas
28 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches

SOLD

“Gina Pellon appears to give free reign to her fascination with faces and
their most characteristic features. Although the figure and its face are
fragmented and reconstructed in terms of color, the features register an
all-important obsession with the distinctly female presence. Embracing
abstraction to explore the figure and release its pent-up energies within the
confines of its own imaginary environment, she is able to create a mood
and ambiance that lure the viewer into the painting’s very midst. Eyes blink
flirtatiously behind their fringed lashes and pursed lips humorously invite
comment and conversation. Each figure emerges from its claustrophobic
background of slashing color and line as a unique personality and
participant in some painterly scheme.”


Carol Damian, Gina Pellon: Friend of CoBrA, text from Fort Lauderdale
Museum of Art exhibition brochure, September 6 – November 17, 1996.

Illustrated in IMPORTANT CUBAN ARTWORKS, Volume Twelve,
Cernuda Arte, Coral Gables, Florida, 2014, page 106.

Plate with Geometric Figures
(Plato con Figuras Geométricas)

Luis Martínez Pedro
1956
one-of-a-kind, hand painted ceramic plate
10 1/4 x 1 inches

AVAILABLE

Illustrated in the book Luis Martínez
Pedro, Revelaciones
, Fundación Arte
Cubano, 2017, page 41.

“Luis Martínez Pedro was one of the
pioneers of the concrete movement in
Cuba. Together with Sandú Darié, he
presented an exhibition at the
University of Havana in 1955 that, due
to its radical nature, is appreciated as a
milestone in the history of Cuban
abstract art... that same year, together
with Amelia Peláez and Wifredo Arcay,
he promoted the implementation of an
artistic ceramics project, a practice that,
until then, was considered to belong to
the fields of crafts... The historical-
artistic context of the island and the
experimental desire of the young
generation that had demolished
academic canons in the middle of the
century, paved the way for these
theories and led several of the most
important artists of the time down the
path of artistic ceramics.”


Raisa Ruiz Arias, excerpt from the book
Luis Martínez Pedro, Revelaciones,
Fundación Arte Cubano, 2017, page 23.

Cuban Art Juan Roberto Diago
Portrait
(Retrato)

Juan Roberto Diago
1998
mixed media and collage on canvas
39 1/2 x 32 inches

SOLD

Provenance:
Private Collection, Madrid, Spain.

In the late 1990s, Juan Roberto Diago
left Cuba to travel to Europe. He landed
in Spain with no funds, where he was
housed and fed by two families who
believed in the artist. Diago produced a
body of work in 1998 that would set the
course for the issues he would explore
throughout his career. Early signs of his
later iconography appear throughout –
masks, scars, and references to identity
populate the works. Productions from
this period have become very rare and
sought after by collectors.

Around this time, the artist found his
footing. In 1999, Diago exhibited in
Paris and became the first Latin
American artist to receive the
prestigious Prix Amédée Maratier award.
In 2001, the artist began collaborating
with Cernuda Arte, which granted him
his first exposure in the United States.

Acquired by a Private Collector in
New York, New York.
