Carlos Estévez Portfolio: Botellas al Mar

June 22, 2017

Botellas al Mar (“Bottles to the Sea”) is part of a project that encloses the main idea of the relation between the space and the people who live in it, where one creates and transforms the other and vice versa. This piece is specifically inspired in the Malecon Habanero (Havana’s Malecon), which celebrated its one-hundredth anniversary in 2001 and is the protagonist of stories of all kinds―a metaphor of the Cuban’s geographic limits and the human’s eagerness for extending his spiritual territories.

Cristina Toro’s Intricate, Supernatural Acrylic Paintings and Collages

February 17, 2017

By Andy Smith

Puerto Rican artist Cristina Toro creates intricate acrylic paintings and collages that often explore both the interior and our connections to the outside world. Her works appear as both surreal and personal revelations, as the artist often sets out with no final image in mind. In a new show at LaCa Projects in Charlotte, N.C., these ideas take on grand forms in works like the enormous “Without Exception Everything is Reflected in this Mirror,” at 12 feet by 9 feet.
