Each work here hovers between ethereal and earthly, abstract and representational. Cuban-American Reinaldo Vargas, who was formerly a poster designer in Havana and is now based in Atlanta, presents complicated paintings which mark a moment in his career when he boldly steps away from pure realism. Jumbles of kaleidoscopic elements nod to mysticism in many forms, with a special emphasis on the Afro-Caribbean religion Santeria. Similarly, Felix Berroa pulls symbolic imagery from the traditions of his native Dominican Republic. Followers depicts a figure in ceremonial dress with face raised to the heavens crossing the canvas, trailed by a procession of people who seem to be dancing. Other works are steeped in the concept of a sacred female—fusing the forms of women with those of angels or birds.
