</span><span style="font-size: medium;">The exhibition, </span><strong><em><span style="font-size: medium;">Fabelo &ndash; New Work</span></em></strong><span style="font-size: medium;">, features paintings, drawings and sculpture by this multi-disciplined avant-garde artist who honed his unique style and fertile imagination in </span><span style="font-size: medium;">Cuba</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&rsquo;s post-revolution period.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">He is known internationally for his compelling allegorical repertoire of images which include: robust figures; nautilus and bird accouterments; Kafkaesque insects; casuelas (cook pots) and domestic tools, to cite a few.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">A hardbound color catalog of the show will be available.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><strong><span style="font-size: medium;">Robert Fabelo &ndash; New Work will be on display from September 13 to October 18, 2014.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">Join us for the Artist&rsquo;s opening reception, Saturday, September, 13; 6-8pm.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span></strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega;"><span style="font-size: medium;">Revered as a prolific painter, sculptor and illustrator, the source of Fabelo&rsquo;s influence is rooted in European masters such as Vel&aacute;zquez and Goya, while at the same time retaining his Cuban identity helping to launch a new Cuban aesthetic with a modern Western slant.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">Underneath his lavish creations with provocative themes lies an existential framework which speaks to his world consciousness and sociopolitical </span><span style="font-size: medium;">beliefs.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">Fabelo appears unapologetic in his depiction of these farcical compositions and wry observations, but the intended effect is not only to challenge the viewer, but to champion the human condition through a surreal resolve.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega;"><span style="font-size: medium;">Surface material has always been an important component in Fabelo&rsquo;s work.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">He won an award at the first Havana Biennial in 1984 for the piece, </span><em><span style="font-size: medium;">Fragmentos vitales</span></em><span style="font-size: medium;">, which consisted of drawings done on irregularly cut Kraft paper and glued directly to the wall, revolutionary in its approach.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">This type of innovation and modernization helped define him as a leading figure in the Cuban avant-garde movement.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: medium;">Fabelo stands out as a master draftsman as evident in the design of his noteworthy sculptural works and in his recent </span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: medium;">sardonic anatomical drawings done using re-appropriated pages of anatomy textbooks. </span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: medium;">The </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega;"><span style="font-size: medium;">interplay between imagery and text creates an oddly poetic narrative, suggesting a torn page from some distorted illuminated manuscript. </span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: medium;">Yet another example of his unique artistry is his 3-dimensial reductive drawings on large used blackened metal pots with heavily etched portraits conveying a sense of artistic alchemy.</span><span style="font-size: medium;">&nbsp; </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: CG Omega;"><span style="font-size: medium;">Awards &amp; Honors: National Arts Award, Ministry of Culture, Havana, 2004;
