Table of Contents

    A Cuban painter now living and working in Spain, Alberto Hernández Reyes creates mystical depictions of nature, employing expressive displays of light and color. Reyes is a self-taught artist, having studied medicine at the Higher Institute of Medical Sciences in Havana, Cuba. Today, his work is found in private collections around the world. With its lush flora and hazy atmosphere, Reyes’s monochromatic scenes evoke ideas of a prehistoric land or dreamlike imagination. As described in Cde Cuba: Art Magazine, “Light is responsible for structuring the composition, outlining the contours, forging the bodies and giving volume, while ensuring the blurring of space and the vaporization of the figures.”[1] Reyes’s intricate work invites contemplation and has been shown across the world, including New York, Miami, Chicago, Spain, and Cuba.
