Descripción de la Exposición

In this new series of paintings, Williams Carmona addresses issues that vary from love, politics and environmental concerns as consequence of human behavior in a critical and provocative way; each painting containing an autobiographical element. The quality of the artist's paintings is drawn from the profound and complex source termed 'magic realism'. A realist inclination and appeal to history merged with surrealist elements act as integral segments and nourish Carmona's creative process. The artist's 'Tropical Surrealism' discourse reveals both the history and fiction of Caribbean and Latin American life since 1492. Carmona's paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows and appeared in international auctions at Sotheby's, Phillips de Pury and Sotheby's, as well as in many respected charity auctions.


Williams Carmona's oeuvre contains a metaphysical undertone that transports the viewer through time. The concept of ... his art is inspired by epigones from art history along with neighborhood characters who are included in the staged play that is his work. Carefully arranged, the characters are at the center of the composition, surrounded by nothing but a horizon. Numerous recognized and well - respected art critics and artists have written about Williams Carmona, among them the esteemed English surrealist painter Leonora Carrington. The art critic Manuel Lemaza ackknowledged him to be one of the most provoking voices in constructing a surrealist discourse and the New York Times art critic Edward M. Gomez defined him as a 'remarkable painter whose magic lies in the manner in which he transforms his materials and uses them to give physical, visible form to ideas and emotions'.


Born in Havana, Cuba in 1967, Carmona studied at the University of Fine Arts in Havana, Cuba and left his country to explore external artistic freedom. He has lived in Puerto Rico since the early 1990s. Williams Carmona's talent and his personality, as well as his experiences in various places before settling in Puerto Rico have helped his work to be exhibited in important spaces and acquired by significant private collectors.
