Orestes Gaulhiac

Orestes  Gaulhiac
An internationally acclaimed painter and ceramist, Orestes Gaulhiac is recognized for his diversity in style and technique. Influenced by his modest roots growing up in the surrounding countryside of Santiago de Cuba, Gaulhiac's works reflect an appreciation for the simple, natural elements of life as well as various "states of spirit" he believes we all experience. Gaulhiac delves into the complexities of modern-day life by bestowing human qualities on fish, birds and animals. Folklore comes alive in recognizable, yet redefined renderings of rural scenes populated with animals, plants, fruit, dolls and circus acts. His playful universe celebrates the grandeur of animals and nature altogether. In addition, Gaulhiac's borderless universe incorporates kings, queens, deities, virgins, mythological heroes, and clowns. His presentation of intertwined and overlapping figures takes his characters outside of class. Gaulhiac explores slanted, improbable relationships between rulers
