We know a country when we know its people.
There is nothing more comforting than arriving someplace that feels familiar. Beyond typical preconceptions about that country, beyond being a tourist, it is the people of a country who make you feel at home and welcome you into their society.
The works of art in Familiar Faces invite you to get to know the Cuban people and deconstruct our fantasies about Cuba. All are wonderful artists and friends of the collector.
Cuban art has become internationally recognized as a result of the technical quality of the island’s artists, their mastery of multiple media, powerful emotional expression, and expertise in their chosen technique. What unites these artists is the way they preserve the Cuban identity, through sensuality, humor, confrontation, or the simple comfort of being a work of art.
Familiar Faces is a tropical bouquet presenting a wide array of people, flowers, moments, and landscapes which are very familiar to anyone who has been to Cuba.
Make yourself at home! Each work of art will open you to a new experience.
