Read about Connie Lloveras
Cuban-born and American-raised artist Connie Lloveras, describes her work as one full of symbolic elements. She takes from the imagery and objects that surround us daily, whether it be natural or manmade, and she removes the original meaning and context of these objects. She then juxtaposes all these elements in her work which forces her audience to carry information into her work; they will decipher the meaning imbued by the artist behind her compositions. Aesthetically, Lloveras’ work is highly textured; her canvases are comprised of several layers of paint which are later incised with brushes or palette knives in order to create raised edges that often surround her subjects. Among her recurrent symbols, we can find that of birds, boats, and seeds. Her work has been acquired by institutions like El Museo del Barrio (New York, New York), Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florid), Cuban Museum, (Miami, Florida), Confort (Barcelona, Spain), and Miguel Gaspar, Salon Gaspar, (Barcelona, Spain) and many more.
