Rafael Soriano at University of Miami Lowe Art Museum

Rafael Soriano: Other Worlds Within, a Sixty Year Retrospective
University of Miami Lowe Art Museum
January 29 – March 27, 2011

Cuban-born painter Rafael Soriano is one of the major Latin American artists of his generation. Soriano broke with regional and folkloric themes which once dominated Cuban art in the mid-twenties. Soriano first mastered geometric abstraction as a style in the 1950’s, but by the late 1960’s had defined his signature approach to painting. His work embodies a style best described as ‘Oneiric Luminism’ combining a purely abstract form of light, form space and shadow with an interest in poetic and metaphysical impulses.
