Gustavo Acosta: THERE
Carlos Gonzalez: Natural Mechanics
Gustavo Acosta‘s THERE: Postcards from Havana is a historical survey of works done throughout the artist’s career based on the city of Havana. Acosta depicts views of the city in which its unique profile emerges like snapshots seen through the filters of time. The series of works represents the artist’s intent to connect the past and present of this iconic city, which was his home.
Carlos Gonzalez’s Natural Mechanic explored the parallels between man and nature. Gonzalez mimics the mechanisms created by nature to transport seeds from a place to another. Gonzalez is interested in uncommon traits in the natural world, like the “walking plants” representing the resilience and mutability of nature.
