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.
