about Alejandro Gómez Cangas
Villa Clara (Cuba),
Alejandro Gómez Cangas’ work depicts the rainbow of humanity in kaleidoscopic motion, focusing on the tension that each person experiences as they try to assert and maintain their individuality. Alejandro’s paintings often show crowds of people waiting in line or walking together towards an unknown situation. Alejandro creates these scenes by photographing individuals walking alone. He collages them using them as a reference point for his paintings. Cangas’ work is focused on how the individual fits within society and the difficulties in navigating their movements and thoughts about others.
