The art book CARLOS GARCIA will be presented on March 25, at 8:00 pm, at Books and Books, 265 Aragón Ave. Coral Gables, FL. 33134, tel. 305 442 44 08, fax. 305 44 97 51. This launching will be held within the framework of Arteamericas 09, one of the most important art fairs taking place in the United States, where Carlos García will show his art works. The book’s edition which took one year to complete, is the product of the author’s comprehensive work, with more than 160 photographs of his paintings and critical essays by renowned writers, in 295 pages. The editor of this publication is Galería Talento Arte Visual, located in Mexico City.

It would seem that the spirit of the man who dreams is completely satisfied. That refractibilitat, that pulling and encrypted energy composing the crash between objects, signs and moods in an encounter of fortuity, embraces the aesthetic experience of Carlos García, whose work, besides poetic is an act of giving in, always aimed towards the edge of painting.

From its depth, this book speaks of the heritage of abstractionism placed within figurative traces, re-symbolized landscapes and territories conquered by pigment stains, calligraphies, punctuation and writings, like chromatic metaphors of a new nature.

Carlos García lifts off with his work within the so called 80´s Generation, marked by the rupture with the traditional school of Cuban painting. His group, Cuatro por Cuatro, is considered one of the most important in the context of visual arts in Havana during that decade. He has participated with his work in the 19th edition of the São Paulo Biennial in Brazil. He has worked with the Donberger Gallery in Germany; Galerie Nesle and Galerie Artuel in France; Galería Talento Visual, from Mexico. He has exhibited his paintings in Russia, France, Italy, Germany, Yugoslavia, Costa Rica, Brazil, Colombia, Panama, Argentina; all this, to highlight only a few of the most important moments in the universe of this renowned painter.

His work is part of the Permanent Collection of Museo de Bellas Artes in Havana, Cuba.
