Rafael Soriano: Cabezas

January 28 - March 22, 2019
South and East Galleries

Co-curated by WP Professor of Art Alejandro Anreus, this exhibition showcases over twenty significant paintings by Cuban-born painter Rafael Soriano (1920-2015). One of the major Latin American artists of his generation, Soriano began his career creating geometric abstractions and later became known for his luminous and biomorphic imagery reminiscent of surrealism. This is the first exhibition devoted to his important series of paintings of heads, which are some of the artist's most figurative works. The exhibition reveals the development of this body of work from early investigations in the late 1960s and 1970s through seminal works from the 1980s and 1990s.
