For many of us in the Latin & African diaspora, the kitchen is more than a collection of plates, utensils, appliances, foods, and spices. Kitchens often double as a magical sanctuary space. A space where the sounds and smells of food serve as a portal to our ancestral lands, our family histories, our cultural identity.
Cuban-American artist, Pablo Soto Campoamor presents an intimate collection of paintings that pay homage to his grandmother, Mariita, and the food, stories, jokes, songs, and the imaginary landscape that she cultivated in her grandson's creative mind, and soul. This show is a celebration of culture, music, ancestry, spirits, and memory. Ordinary elements encased in a crashing symphony of color, rhythm, and pattern.
