Painter Ahmed Gomez Juxtaposes the Mode with the Method

By Angie Hargot

The Lead Miami Beach

Born in Holguin, Cuba in 1972, it was in the embattled island nation that Ahmed Gomez was exposed to art throughout childhood and it was there that he honed his aesthetic.
“I was always connected to images,” Gomez says, a fact that’s evident in an impressively long exhibition resume, and an extensive inventory of work.

He continued his studies at the High Institute of Art and National School of Art in Havana, and embarked on a long path of shows, winning awards and accolades for his work throughout the ’80s and ’90s.

Forever. Cristina Lei Rodriguez at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood

by Anne Tschida

Miami Art Guide Magazine 28
Apr/May 2011

The main hall at the Arts and Culture Center of Hollywood has been transformed into an arboretum of sorts, though the plants and flowers aren’t actually growing. In fact they are all the seedlings of Cristina Lei Rodriguez, whose work most art lovers in Miami should recognize. Since her first solo show back in 2003 at the now defunct Rocket Projects, through her shows at the also shuttered Galerie Perrotin, to Art Basel Miami Beach, to her current local home at Fred Snitzer, Lei Rodriguez’s unique sculptures stand out from the crowd.

Alejandro Aguilera blends Afro-Cuban heritage, modernism at Saltworks

by Rebecca Dimling Cochran | Apr 15, 2011

Alejandro Aguilera’s current solo show at Saltworks takes us back to a series of works he made in 1998, called the “Black Drawings.” It’s a rewarding journey: the drawings are rich and raw, pulsating with alternating rhythms that give them a lyrical quality.

The Cuban-born artist made them when he first immigrated to the United States and was living in Miami. At the time, his day job was designing and creating hand-painted fabrics for commercial use in wall coverings and upholstery. At night, Aguilera would take large sheets of the thin kraft paper that bound the rolls of fabric back to the studio with him.
