Richard Taittinger gallery presents “Broken Landscape,” the first major exhibition by the Cuban artist Jorge Mayet.
After settling in Spain, the artist felt nostalgia for his homeland, and his art conveys not only this feeling of loss, but also an idealization of what was left behind. His works show both the physical and temporal distance from his homeland, reflecting the immigrant experience with a mixture feelings such as loss, hope, recovery and guilt. “The earth has a great importance, both physical and spiritual, for my people. What is involved in the baggage that accompanies us for the rest of our life, as the landscapes we left behind, remain vivid in memory,” he says.
Jorge Mayet lives in Palma de Mallorca. His works are part of important collections, museums and galleries such as the Saatchi Gallery (London), the MAD Museum (New York), and the Leo Gallery (Shanghai), among others.
The exhibition will be available until August 21.
Located at 154 Ludlow St and Stanton St.
