Yasiel Alvarez Borges, 2019
Size: width 175cm height 200cm
"Contents" by the Cuban artist Yasiel Alvarez Borges. Standing at width "175 cm" by height "200 cm" it is a figurative painting made of oil painting on canvas.
The pieces, which show us bundles of books tied together, or in precarious balance, or forming strange compositions, with their detailed workmanship it seems that they want to avoid thinking about the artist's hand. And closely, very closely, the neutral backgrounds where these volumes float remind us of abstractions. Faced with these works, the viewer finds himself in a permanent game of scales, lacking references he can never establish the real size of the objects.

About Yasiel Alvarez Borges
There are great books in the world and great worlds in books. This truth is well known by the young painter Yasiel Alvarez Borges, who for more than a decade has placed the book as the protagonist of his works, not only seen from its physical materiality, but also as a great well of wisdom. "I am motivated by the thirst for knowledge and our ever-changing society, that is why my work aims to dialogue with time and experience."Another topic of his work is the absence of the human being. “The non-physical presence of man is replaced by the book, an element capable of collecting all the accumulated experience. It also works for me to question situations and processes carried out by the human species ”.
