Rafael Lopez-Ramos: CHROMATIC APORIAS, at MOCA Proyect Gallery, North Miami. In Chromatic Aporias the artist includes realistic renderings of tropical fruits paraphrasing the gaze of colonial Art; the syncretism of Afro-Cuban religious symbols and Catholic images; and the Revolution’s propaganda iconography. Now he adds typical Americana popular culture characters, and esoteric symbols related to the American political tradition. The carnivalesque mixture of such dissimilar narratives may connote the cultural, philosophical and political paradoxes faced by the Cuban soul today, in a contemporary reenactment of the Aristotelian concept of Aporia: the equality of contrary conclusions.
