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.
