Cuban-born painter Rafael Soriano is one of the major Latin American artists of his generation. Soriano broke with regional and folkloric themes which once dominated Cuban art in the mid-twenties. Soriano first mastered geometric abstraction as a style in the 1950’s, but by the late 1960’s had defined his signature approach to painting. His work embodies a style best described as ‘Oneiric Luminism’ combining a purely abstract form of light, form space and shadow with an interest in poetic and metaphysical impulses.

“I do not pretend to transmit a message of reality: I am moved by the longing to travel through my paintings in a dimension of spirit where the intimate and the cosmic converge.” – Rafael Soriano
“No pretendo transmitir ningun mensaje de la realidad: me mueve un ansia de viajar a traves de la pintura por la dimension del espiritu, donde lo intimo y lo cosmico confluyen.” – Rafael Soriano
