September 7, 2013 (opening)
Amat Art Gallery 7223 SW 48th Street Miami, FL
Three talented Cuban-American artists forming Sérverus will exhibit together:
Alvaro Labañino, Jefreid Lotti and Miguel A. Saludes
The group’s name is a Spanish-language pun on Cerberus, the three-headed canine monster of Greek mythology which guards the entrance and exit to the Underworld. Sérverus evokes ser veraz, or ‘to be true,’ in this case, to painting as a living art rooted in a tradition which enriches, rather than constrains, innovation. The group rejects the idea that painting is dead and, instead, seeks inspiration from the past—the living Underworld of memory—to produce work which manifests the unbreakable link between individuality, originality, and creativity.
