Carlos Luna, Painter, Artist

Heather James Fine Art is pleased to present Carlos Luna: Los Decorados, January 15 - March 20, 2011 with an opening reception from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, January 15, 2011. Please RSVP emily@heatherjames.com.

The exhibition is comprised of a stunning installation of new oil paintings, works on paper, sculpture, and dozens of ceramic plates by the acclaimed Latin-American artist. Additionally, throughout the gallery, Luna will create custom wall paintings as background designs that will unify the installation into a passionate display of imaginative ornamentation.

Born in Cuba in 1969, Carlos Luna has always been an artist; he recalls making a painting of his mother at the age of seven. His prodigious talent was recognized and nurtured from an early age, as he distinguished himself at four successive art schools. By the age of 15 his work was being exhibited in group shows in National Museums throughout Cuba, and internationally a year later. Possessing a strong spirit, and an unquenchable desire for personal growth as an artist, Carlos left Cuba in 1991. He migrated to Mexico and subsequently settled in Puebla, where his career entered a new phase of exploration and growth. Exile can also provide a fresh perspective on one’s roots and the opportunity to expand one’s artistic vision and influence to a wider global scale. After receiving a U.S. EB-1-1 visa for extraordinary ability in 2001, Carlos migrated to Miami along with his wife and three children. The art community has embraced Carlos Luna’s work with great enthusiasm since his arrival in the U.S. in 2002. His work has been exhibited alone or as part of a collection in more than 25 museums and arts institutions around the country, and is highly regarded by curators and critics alike. Luna’s exile has expanded his opportunities for exposure to a wider world audience and for his work to be judged in a broader arena.

Carlos Luna has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, FL; Complejo Cultural Universitario BUAP, Puebla, Mexico; Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, CA; American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, Washington, DC, and at the Susquehanna Art Museum, Harrisburg, PA among many others. Additionally, his work has been included in group exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA; Nassau County Museum of Art, Roslyn Harbor, NY; and El Museo Franz Mayer, Mexico DF among others. He has also received numerous awards and grants, including Artist in Residence; Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale, FL (2008) and the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant Award (2001).
