Pan American Art Projects presents Gustavo Acosta: HERE a tribute exhibition to the city of Miami. Obsessed by the power of architecture, the artist traces the urban transformation of the city he calls home in this new series of works. Having witnessed the real estate boom and economic crash that followed thereafter, Acosta’s pieces encapsulate architectural giants in a stand-still moment; whether plummeting to ruins, being erected, or standing strong amidst the chaos of a city of lost promise. Works like “Borrando las Huellas”, which depicts collapsing buildings, and “One Day I Find Myself Building a Circus”, a large canvas of the foundations of the new Marlin stadium, portray the city as a breathing entity; one that suffers with the collapse or construction of its parts; what is enfolding in each canvas is left up to the viewer to decide.
Latin American Masters presents, Art of Illusion, recent paintings by Gustavo Acosta (Cuba, 1958). Gustavo Acosta is obsessed by the power of architecture. As impressive as his cityscapes appear, they are empty of people. Acosta’s deserted cities suggest the false promises of history, that revolutions and empires leave only their architectural remnants.

The Great Systems
The idea of being constantly watched drove him to paint what seem like views seen through night vision goggles. These images looked like they were made by somebody who went around while everybody was sleeping and registered what he saw. While experimenting in this direction Gustavo started to play with the color green and the infinite possibilities that it offered. This led him to use the color as a filter, as if he was permanently looking at his surroundings through a green glass. The result is these group of paintings in which he has ‘softened’ the color in a more even tone, getting farther away from the goggles effect and giving the impression of an image captured when the light had a rare diffusion.

Latin American Masters presents our second solo exhibition for Gustavo Acosta (born Cuba, 1958). Acosta makes paintings that are philosophical and enigmatic objects of painterly allure. His landscapes depict architecture both historic and banal: Ferris wheels; airports; freeways; modernist swimming pools. “Momento,” a painting from the current exhibition, shows a Zeppelin, an object of child-like wonder, floating like an enormous balloon over a cloud-laden landscape. Buried within the skin of the Zeppelin’s iconography is the disaster of the Hindenburg, a disaster which undercut the promises of the Modern Age.
Los Juegos del Principe, esta frase vendria a ser el comentario final sobre el conjunto de obras, conjunto de subseries que presento en la Galeria Nina Menocal. Tres subseries para ser especifico, “The Golden Voice”, “Stalker” y una tercera sin nombre pero recurrente en mi obra, que insiste en la exploracion atemporal de la trayectoria, en el destino y la ubicuidad.
