Flashback, Rafael López Ramos
Cowry Art Studio is pleased to present an exhibition of selected works from different stages of López-Ramos' artistic practice through 40 years, since his first solo show (Muestra ecléctica, Galería 10 de Octubre, Havana), in December 1980. It includes several works from the 80s and 90s, other created during the period he resided in Canada (1997-2006), and the subsequent series he made in Miami: Mirroring Nature (2007-2010), Wonderland (2011-2014), and Aporias (2014-2017).
We fended off the “retrospective” label, as this is not an exhaustive compilation of works loaned from private collections, but one only comprising pieces in the artist's collection, which saved us the cumbersome process of loan agreements and shipping of artworks from different cities and countries.
A digital catalog of the exhibition is available, reproducing all artworks, and a selection of essays and reviews about them, plus an introductory text written ad hoc for this publication, which will be the first extensive documentation of López-Ramos work.
The show will run from December 1st 2020 to January 1st 2021, at Cowry Art Studio, North Miami. For visits in person, please make appointment here, or virtually viewing at this same web page where the exhibition catalog can be downloaded just below.
