Sandra Carrion & Lois Youmans: Double Vision – Cuban Dreams
June 29 – July 30, 2016
Reception Saturday, July 9th 5 – 7pm
Carrion’s work focuses on the people, places and things of Cuba. Trips to a school, boxing gym, food markets and the streets became the subjects she then translated to dreamy encaustic prints. The waxy haze over the images represents the atmospheric feeling of the place. The people were kind, honest, and enthusiastic. Carrion strives to capture these characteristics in her new work.
Youmans responds differently to the same settings, rarely photographing people, instead focusing on the details of crumbling buildings and defunct machinery. Although much of the colonial architecture of Cuba has been maintained, many buildings and factories have deteriorated to a point of no return. Youmans photographs these chipped and peeling facades to reveal a physical timeline of Cuba’s history.
