WINDOW GALLERY : ROGER TOLEDO

OCCASIONAL LANDSCAPES

04.22.21 – 05.09.21

Roger is a searcher and a researcher, an innovator of technique and a student of color. He is a formal minimalist owing as much to Seurat as he does to Albers. His contemporary landscapes vibrate with a subdued ambience generated from a mathematical approach to color pairing and composition. For many of his series he creates a proprietary coded system based on color theory studies to produce his own color maps, breaking the painting down into an advanced paint-by-numbers grid. He will often build up layers of texture with acrylic medium pressed through metal screens.  At times the sculpted depths read like the braille of a new genre that might be considered Neo-Pointillism.

Born in Camagüey, Cuba in 1986, Roger graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana where from 2011 until 2017 he served as a professor of Painting and Criticism. He has taken part in several artistic residencies, academic exchanges, exhibitions and has received awards and recognitions. His work is included in private collections in Europe, Latin America and the United States.

He currently lives and works in Havana, Cuba.
