Open Studio: Moisés González

/ 6 September, 2018

Moisés González, a renowned artist of current Cuban utilitarian and decorative arts, is erupting in our visual panorama with an interesting proposal. Surrealist, authentic, genuine, unbiased, his pictorial creation evokes the oneiric while conveying dreamlike, humanoid, zoomorphic, ethereal creatures with their own and well-defined identity.

He began his artistic career with the inlay paintings he has successfully exhibited. He has given several lectures in and outside Cuba about this very old technique of which he is a great connoisseur. Later, he has dedicated himself to the creation of artistic humidors, genuine works of art that served as a bridge or link to get to the work he exhibits today.

His experience in sculpture led him to refine the forms and to get interested in the two-dimensional. He got to the canvas because of a creative need and because of the infinite possibilities its gives him. According to him, he prefers to do oil paintings on any support because it enables him to express himself more sincerely and he argues that creativity is magic and that he paints due to a mysterious force. Even though he dominates wood, which he bends into amazing artistic compositions, he always abandons it for the bristol board and canvas in this new adventure with which he feels right at home.

His art contains a great deal of his ancestors. A proliferous and tireless worker whose formation is empirical, he affirms that everything comes from when he was a child since his family tradition and neighbors in Itabo, a small forgotten town in Matanzas province, with his uncles who were painters, had an inevitable influence on him.

His oil paintings, drawings and acrylics in diverse formats, techniques and themes move between the sacred and the profane, the experimental and the traditional. His formal harmony
leads us to fantasy and it is possible to appreciate in his work that ethereal atmosphere full of dissimilar symbols allegoric to the conflicts of the world we live in today.

He has held several personal expositions and has participated in collective displays in the last 20 years.

Today he is opening his studio with a consolidated plastic work full of naïve and sensual beings, while he prepares his next exposition in which he will exhibit his most recent works, those that have made him a favorite of collectors, always avid for the new, and which those who visit his studio, open to all, will also be able to appreciate.
