Peres Projects is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of Dalton Gata (b. 1977 in Santiago de Cuba, CU) at the Berlin gallery. Dalton Gata’s multidisciplinary practice draws on a visual language of stylized realism, with nods to the legacy of surrealism. His long and curved brush strokes, and his composed figures reference and stimulate a sense of embodiment and eroticism. These works are deeply rooted in and signal the artist’s Caribbean background and make reference to African and Spanish histories. Gata’s mediation on performance and artifice, the reclaiming of ‘dirty’ symbols, are timely and remarkable aesthetic translations of the chaos of our time.
