Cuban artist Connie LLoveras el Vacio is an early sculpture with Connie's distinct and creative edge. Work completed in 1993 and measures 26" x 36" x 14".
In Connie's work human figures, birds and boats are often placed amidst a series of unrelated images to jar the spectator’s imagination in relation to these forms. Abstract concepts such as birth and renewal become as palpable as seeds and eggs. Boats allude to journeys, silhouettes become cups or recipients, and nests become traveling vessels. By placing these forms, stripped of their literal references, within the same composition, the viewer is forced to use their own thought process to complete these renderings.
Lloveras earned a BFA degree from Florida International University. A painter and sculptor, her works are included in many collections such as University of Miami Art Museum, Museums in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Panama.
Connie has completed public art commissions in places such as Miami Dade County and Federal building in Dallas, TX.
