Gustavo Acosta: “Timeline”, at Latin American Masters Art Gallery, Santa Monica, CA

September 12 – October 31, 2015

Reception for the Artist: Saturday, September 12, 2015, 6 – 8 PM

Latin American Masters Art Gallery
2525 Michigan Ave E2,
Santa Monica, CA 90404

Latin American Masters is pleased to present, Timeline, an exhibition of recent paintings by Gustavo Acosta (Cuba, b. 1958). Acosta’s Timeline paintings feature the neo-romantic architecture of a seemingly abandoned city. Acosta’s treatment of surface, particularly the staining and layering of color, reinforce an awareness of time’s imprint. Yet, his paintings have an enigmatic, A-temporal quality, as if haunted by history. Rather than ghost towns, they appear as constructions from a parallel world that can never be entered, where threedimensional space flows seamlessly into two-dimensional geometry.

Gustavo Acosta, Carlos Estevez, Gory, Ruben Torres-Llorca in Made in Miami, at Pan American Art Projects, Miami

February 14-April 19, 2014

Pan American Art Projects
2450 NW 2nd Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Pan American Art Projects is very pleased to announce our next exhibition, Made in Miami. Since the insertion of Art Basel Miami Beach in 2002 the city has become a hub for contemporary art, resulting in a huge influx of artists and galleries here in the past ten years. This interest in art has also extended to the creation of several new institutions such as the Frost Museum at the Florida International University, and more recently the Perez Art Museum Miami.

The artists in this exhibition are Gustavo Acosta, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Carlos Estévez and Carolina Sardi; they all call Miami home and have been based in the city through its evolution into a cultural hub. They all came to Miami from abroad (Carolina Sardi from Argentina, Gustavo Acosta and Carlos Estevez from Cuba and Edouard Duval Carrie from Haiti) and had already reached international acclaim before settling here which is a testament to the draw that Miami has with its rich cultural panorama.

Revisiting the past – The paintings of Gustavo Acosta

By Irina Leyva-Pérez

If we look back at Gustavo’s oeuvre over a span of twenty years, we can easily recognize that he has been interested in social expressions of power. In the 1980s, when his work started receiving attention, he was using metaphors of Roman architecture as a reference to the Cuban social system. The dark, gray and muted colors were intentionally placed to reinforce the atmosphere of oppression that he wanted to convey. By representing some of the most recognizable buildings in Roman architecture, he drew a subtle parallel between the Imperial Roman and Cuban dictatorships.

The Great Systems – Gustavo Acosta/Flights of Fancy – Carlos Gonzalez

Article appeared in Art Pulse Magazine 2009 “To soar” involves breeching the wall of the mundane to internalize, perhaps, the purest essence of our reality. Then, from above, startled by so much finiteness, we prepare for that voyage of yearning toward the city from whence we came and toward which we travel, there where stories are interconnected and new paths, journeys, and narrations are configured
