The Magic act of the Levitation of Cuban Art Oil on Canvas 70" x 70"
The works of Quintana blends a painterly, almost traditional mastery of oil on canvas, with a nod toward the more folkloric aspects of Cuban art. Dense with symbolism, Quintana’s work radiates an impressive power in the way the materiality of paint depicts the flesh-like presence of his figures.
In the work The Shipwreck of my Landscape, the woman that forms that painting’s focal point takes on a poetic meaning. She is the landscape, just as the paint out of which her body is composed is a material designedly expressing the winds and ravages of a hurricane.
