FSU Professor of Art and Guggenheim Fellow Lilian Garcia-Roig, is one of twenty female artists being featured in a new exhibition at Cernuda Arte in Coral Gables, Florida. The gallery located at 3155 Ponce de Leon Boulevard, is open for viewing Monday through Friday 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., Saturday 12:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. and is closed on Sundays.
Garcia-Roig’s practice is an inspiration linking her Cuban and American identities together. Her paintings uses the materiality and process of paint to explore her own connections to land and place. Drawing from perceptual to conceptual experiences of landscape, her on-site works are immersive expressions of bodily movement, fleeting moments of time that demonstrate illusionistic and abstracting possibilities of painting.
Lilian references history in her paintings that are truly representations of land, and legacies of place and expresses the complexity of her hyphenated identity. And her works can be seen in this historic showing, now available to be viewed at the gallery and online.
