Museum Description  

Carlos Luna
De pilon café cubano


Often the narratives focus on a set of characters: machismo figures such as the Rooster Man and the Guajiro honestly reflect the artist’s consciousness of his upbringing in a machismo-driven society. At the same time his profound respect for the worth and power of the feminine is shown in the elegant and beautiful character of “pretty lady,” reportedly based on his wife, Claudia. Symbolic animal figures such as the black bull, the horse, and the alligator, whose graphic shape may refer to Cuba, help populate Luna’s narratives. The rooster as a symbol of machismo is deeply embedded in Cuban culture and recalls Luna’s boyhood experience as a participant in the popular culture of cockfights.
