Geandy Pavón is an accomplished Cuban-born artist based in New Jersey. About his series Political Fold, he says :
“In my opinion, the effectiveness of an image is inscribed in its potential as a ruin. I am interested in revealing the conceptual strength of an image by turning it into a ruin. I have found, in the classic media of painting, the most effective way to perpetuate this moment.
“Recently, I have developed a series of works in which I use archival photographic material which I wrinkle, cut, or fold to be used as a model for my paintings. The subject portrayed in each photograph allows me to travel from one genre to another, such as landscapes or portraits, but always conceived from the perspective of a still life painter.”
These paintings are oil paint on canvas.

Maybe you should go back to Cuba and a real ruin in this world, instead of from the safety of a country that has welcomed you, and that is not in ruins.
Your comment is confusing. I respectfully think that you didn’t understand the artist’s intention with this series.

This is so nice! I hope that whenever I fold my papers, it will become an artwork like this. Amazing! Thumbs up!
Che Guevara: my political idol. A true hero, the symbol of revolution.
My name is Ashley Jackson from Conway, Arkansas . I have been on the lookout for some artworks lately in regards to I and my wife’s anniversary which is just around the corner. I stormed on some of your works which i found quite impressive and intriguing. I must admit your doing quite an impressive job. You are undoubtedly good at what you do.
With that being said, I would like to purchase some of your works as a surprise gift to my wife in honor of our upcoming wedding anniversary. It would be of help if you could send some pictures of your piece of works, with their respective prices and sizes, which are ready for immediate (or close to immediate) sales. My budget for this is within the price range of $1500 to $7000.
I look forward to reading from you in a view to knowing more about your pieces of inventory. As a matter of importance, I would also like to know if you accept check as a means of payment.
