Humberto Castro / "TRACES OF MIGRATIONS"

I find this Cuban artist's work particularly poignant. Take a look.

Exhibition through December 31st, 2010
Virtual Tour

Like works in the artist's previous one-person shows at ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries, "First 15-Year Retrospective" in 2006 and "Contemporary Fables" in 2008, Castro's new paintings continue to explore visual metaphors based on the concept of historic immigration as the foundation for today's society, along with emancipation of the human spirit.

"Clearly, Humberto Castro's work is directly inspired by his experience and those of his peers as Cuban emigrants," said gallery director Virginia Miller. "But these works have a universal, visceral appeal--after all, virtually every region of the world was settled through emigration."
