ALAN LACKE CAIRO

Collective Exhibition
April 9 – April 29, 2021
Reception: Thursday, April 15, 2021 6-8 PM

Alan Lacke Cairo’s art is based mainly on scientific information, mathematical laws, cosmic energies and history. In his plastic and canvas worlds, the Cuban artist elevates basic forms with vibrant colors. His employment of line and gesture, often seen through repeating patterns, are paramount to his constitution of harmony and order across his canvases. Color then becomes an instrument for sensation among his viewers intended to inspire contemplation. There is always a search for the essential in his work, of the spirit of things, and of what is beyond the surface. As he looks to develop his art career, his goal is to communicate a message of peace and optimism through his art.

Cairo is a full time artist living and working in Havana, Cuba. Living in a country with scarce resources, finding the necessary means for creating is often difficult for the artist. He resourcefully creates handmade tools, and uses pigments that are well diluted, which lends to the aesthetic effect on his surfaces, but also is a protective measure to prolong the life of the materials. Of his work, Cairo states: “Ignorance is the cause of human suffering. I try to invite the viewer to a silent contemplation of an almost mystical sense of seeing the world, through geometric shapes, color and space.”
