from the Cuba Series, 2020 [click image for larger view]
"El Campesino" is a timeless portrait of a present day Cuban tobacco farmer on a piece of land in Viñales, Cuba, deep in the Piñar del Rio valley. Cuba has a rich history of agricultural traditions and remains suspended in a quality of life that is forever frozen in time. The work evokes a nostalgia reminiscent of late 19th century.
This painted art piece is hand crafted from a number of reference images, to reflect the feeling of this exquisitely quiet but rugged agrarian lifestyle so common to this region.
