Join us for a special gallery at Books & Books honoring the work of celebrated visual artist Liliam Cuenca

Friday, May 3, 7-10 pm | Books & Books at Coral Gables

On view in our gallery through the end of May.

Liliam Cuenca is an accomplished artist who honed her skills in painting and printmaking at the prestigious Academy of San Alejandro in Cuba. After moving to the United States in the mid-1980s, she embarked on a prolific artistic career, exhibiting her works in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Cuencas’ artwork delves into the concept of parallel realities, seeking to unveil hidden aspects of existence. Her abstract style captures a profound sensitivity reminiscent of Romanticism, evoking a sense of introspection and contemplation. Her paintings possess a distinct “foggy” quality, with layers of paint creating a visual depth that invites viewers to peer beyond the surface. In Cuencas’ works, the audience becomes a spectator, immersed in a world she has masterfully created. The ethereal landscapes she presents draw parallels to iconic pieces like “Wanderer Above a Sea of Fog” by Caspar David Friedrich, where the viewer is captivated by the vastness of the scene and compelled to explore the unknown. Through her artistic process, Cuencas skillfully layers paint, allowing glimpses of what lies beneath, hinting at hidden narratives and realms of existence. Her compositions beckon viewers to engage in a visual journey, inviting them to interpret and discover the subtleties within the layers of her work. Liliam Cuencas’ exploration of parallel realities and her ability to capture emotions through her abstract style have established her as a talented and thought-provoking artist. Her ability to create atmospheric and evocative landscapes invites viewers to contemplate the mysteries and hidden depths of existence. Cuencas’ unique artistic vision allows for personal interpretation and invites the audience to become active participants in the journey of her art.
