Rubén Torres-Llorca, José Bedia, Cruz Azaceta, González-Torres, Ana Mendieta, Sandra Ramos, Carlos Rodríguez Cárdenas, among Cuban artists included in “A to Z of Caribbean Art”, an anthology of artists of the Caribbean

Robert & Christopher Publishers, a Trinidad-based art book imprint, has published an anthology of important artists from the Caribbean, including Cuban artists from the diaspora.

A to Z of Caribbean Art is a joyous celebration of the lives and works of many of the most outstanding, prolific, groundbreaking, critical, fascinating, and controversial artists of the Caribbean. Thanks to the abécédaire format of this book, a multiplicity of artists have ended up in lively dialogue here. We connect people separated by geography, language, and time: 120 years of movements, moments, schools, and sociopolitical contexts; countries as far apart as Bermuda in the north to Guyana in the south; and the French, Dutch, English, and Spanish Caribbean.

Each artist is represented by a page that shows a definitive work, biographical details, and a short write-up about their oeuvre. These artists were selected based on a number of factors, including critical discourse around their work, inclusion in a significant publication, work written about in regional or international trade magazine, and participation in a curated exhibition at a major institution, or at a regional or international biennial.

The Metamorphosis of Experience

Release date November 1, 2012

At the time of his death in 2006, Agustin Fernandez ranked among Cuba’s most outstanding artists. Defying simple categorization, today his work is most recognizable for its ambiguous and precariously balanced forms, erotic overtones, surreal juxtapositions, and metallic palette.

Hard Light- The work of Emilio Sanchez

This much anticipated and beautifully compiled monograph is the first to bring to light the prolific career and life of this imaginative and spirited 20th-century Cuban American artist.

Although barely acknowledged in his native country in the aftermath of the Cuban Revolution, Sanchez dedicated much of his career to recreating the effects of Cuba’s sun-soaked colors onto canvas in his New York City studios. This volume collects Sanchez’s acclaimed paintings, watercolors, and drawings, which are celebrated for their architectural forms, brilliant palettes, hard lines, and striking use of light and shadow. Although never fully abandoning figuration, Sanchez’s paintings reflect a dialogue with North American post War abstraction, as well as Latin American geometric abstraction. In addition to Cuban street scenes, Sanchez painted the architecture of New York, the Caribbean and North Africa, including still lifes, and land- and seascapes throughout.

Offering diverse perspectives on this multifaceted painter, three compelling essays discuss Sanchez’s work—from its relevance to aspects of modernism in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the U.S., to a unique glimpse into his private world and art through the lens of queer theory and aesthetics. This prismatic presentation gives readers a fresh look at this unique artist’s vision while firmly positioning Sanchez within the discourse on 20th-century art history.
