Rogelio López Marín (Gory) was born in Havana, Cuba and he lives and works in Miami, FL. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the National School of Art in Havana. He took a Photographic and Graphic Design course under the tutorial of the Cuban artist Raúl Martínez and has a Master of Art History from the University of Havana.
This exhibition contains over twenty important photographic works by Gory for the period between 1985 and 1994. The work displayed encompasses a series with a marked conceptualist interest with texts by Michael Ende (It’s Only Water in a Stranger’s Tear) and poems by his wife Lucia Ballester and includes more orthodox photographs, with a marked conceptual closeness to documentary photography. All the works are linked by the same toned gelatin silver print technique that gives them a formal unity accentuated by the artist’s unique vision.
