KARLOS PEREZ_ After Memories
Opening Reception: 
Friday, June 29, 6- 9PM 
Artist Talk: 
Sunday, July 1@ noon
MEET one of Cuba’s most revered young artists Karlos Pérez. At age 28, Pérez’s paintings are in notable private collections and museums all over the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bronx Museum of Art.
Galería Cubana is pleased to present the work of Karlos Pérez in the new exhibition LOST. Inspired by photographs of times past, his paintings form vignettes that tell intimate stories of family and unknown strangers. The objective of the artist is to connect the viewer with his/her own history and memory.
With a background in photography, video, and installation, Pérez’s paintings blur the boundaries between mediums. The artist scratches at the canvas, blots on paint, obstructs and interferes with the visual, reshaping the events that had previously been captured on film. The results are enigmatic paintings that seem to have traveled through time to captivate us in the present.
This will be Pérez’s third year exhibiting at Galeria Cubana and his second time visiting Provincetown. The artist knows his audience and has planned accordingly with several selective new large format paintings of finely sculpted men frolicking on the beach.
