Liliam Cuenca's paintings are charged with a sense of mystery. The work as a whole contains the depth of magic, and the maturity of a clear and consistent visual language.....the artworks created by Cuenca constitute a meticulously ordered territory in which its well organized context live both a necessary and arbitrary life.
-Jorge Luis Gutierrez
The somber quality of the etchings and paintings of Liliam Cuenca, rather than oppress our perception, is a surprising release factor that allows us to deepen our appreciation of the formal compositions and the depth of hues she explores
Using deepest darks with the intensity and effect of bright light, Cuenca dominates the space within the frame in evanescing tableaux where human and feral forms dissolve and coalesce in her assured use of line and texture.
-Juan Espinosa -Almodovar Art Trends:Miami's Trek III (Catalogue)
Her intuitive abstract vision inspires the emergence of passionate and imaginative surfaces that have an air of reverie and nostalgia without ever reveal any meaning or a narrative content. It is her personal quest to materializan image through color and line and reveal its essence through the paint’s tactile sensations and mere fragments of reality.
-Carol Damian, Ph.D.
