(Cuba, b. 1944)

Julio Larraz’s art delights in public spectacle and ceremony.  Larraz is also an acknowledged master of the most modest of genres: the still-life.  Larraz’s art reflects his wide-ranging art historical interests, including caricature and the dream-logic of Surrealists. Perhaps most surprising, Larraz’s paintings have strong affinities with American modernist painters, including O’Keefe and Hopper. Whatever his chosen subject, Larraz’s paintings manifest singular formal strengths, including a mastery of light and brushwork, at once graceful and sensuous.
