I saw paintings of 11 artists,
paintings of boundaries and fracture,  
during a time of conflict and censure, 
painted with such clarity, and wonder, 
of an alternate vision,
of Cuba, a nation, 
to outlast all struggle, all dominion. - Drenched Co

Comment: " Perhaps it was a trope of that time to paint these colorful geometrics but I want to see the romance behind these painted shards and dislocated boundaries."- FaSa

Key: The artists wanted abstraction to be more than purely visual, formal concerns. They wanted to engage the collective conscience of Cuba.
