Hasta enero de 2021, LaCa Projects presenta Beachcomber, la tercera exposición individual en la galería del artista contemporáneo internacionalmente reconocido Carlos Estévez. Beachcomber es una exposición multimedia que consta de más de cincuenta obras de arte en pintura, ensamblaje de objetos encontrados y cerámica. La muestra devela una coyuntura fundamental en la evolución continua del proceso artístico de Carlos, con referencias a temas arquetípicos de la metafísica, la transformación y la espiritualidad humana.


En estas obras, Estévez construye mundos, alegorías de la tensión entre nuestro microcosmos imaginario y nuestro macrocosmos existencial, mientras tratamos de suspenderse entre los dos para mantener la cordura. Se nutre de experiencias tan variadas como sus composiciones: una vida que comenzó en Cuba, pero con un tiempo significativo en París, Charlotte y, en las últimas décadas, Miami. Él dobla estas experiencias a través de la lente conceptual de manuscritos iluminados, textos medievales y filosofía contemporánea, lo que Estévez ha descrito como “transcripciones y traducciones de mis observaciones cotidianas en imágenes”. Carlos Estévez (n. 1969, Cuba) vive y trabaja actualmente en Miami. Su educación comenzó en la Escuela Primaria de Artes Plásticas, continuó en la Academia de Bellas Artes San Alejandro, y la completó en el Instituto Superior de Arte de La Habana en 1992, donde recibió su Licenciatura en Bellas Artes. Su trabajo en pintura, dibujo, escultura e instalaciones ha recibido elogios internacionales, destacando el Gran Premio en el Primer Salón de Arte Cubano Contemporáneo en 1995. Ha aparecido en numerosas exposiciones individuales en prestigiosas instituciones como el Museo de Bellas Artes de La Habana, Cuba, el Museo de Arte Patricia y Phillip Frost de la Universidad Internacional de Florida y el Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Nueva Orleans, Luisiana. Sus obras también se pueden encontrar en colecciones públicas y privadas de todo el mundo, incluido el Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de La Habana, el Foro Ludwig en Aachen, Alemania, el Museo de Bellas Artes de Boston y el Museo de Arte Pérez en Miami, Florida. Establecida en 2013, Latin American Contemporary Art (LaCa) Projects se ubica en Charlotte, Carolina del Norte. La misión de la galería es crear una puerta de entrada para conectar a los artistas latinoamericanos contemporáneos con la escena artística cada vez más diversificada de Charlotte, así como proporcionar una ubicación en la región sureste de los Estados Unidos para que los coleccionistas de arte desarrollen y fomenten una apreciación por la narrativa visual del arte latinoamericano contemporáneo.
