Art Madrid'23 – Gerardo Liranza
San Antonio de los Baños (Cuba), 1987
Gerardo Liranza Durán is a graduate of the School of Art Instructors (2006) and the Academy of San Alejandro (2012). He has participated in several personal and collective exhibitions, in Cuba and Panama.
Liranza tries to understand the empty spaces as a symbol of material and psychic corrosion by the passage of time. The deterioration of architectural elements suggests the wear and tear of social and individual structures either over the years or by the force exerted by the blows of life. Thus, rust becomes a metaphor of the vestige, of what subsists after the cataclysm; of existential emptiness.
