About

This small scale painting draws the viewer in with its painstaking detail. Each leaf and blade of grass a rendered in tiny brush strokes making the painting feel much larger than it is. Vivid greens project against the gray sky creating an almost fish-eye perspective. This oil on panel painting is framed in black ebony colored wood. "Pozas" René Monzón Relova Lajania oil on panel 8h x 15.75w in 20.32h x 40.01w cm René Monzón Relova, “Pozas” b. 1966, Havana, Cuba Cuban born “Pozas” is a self-educated artist. After completing his studies in Electrical Engineering, he abandoned his career to dedicate himself entirely to painting. His first exhibitions in Cuba were done in impressionistic style but He later turned to hyperrealism/surrealism with landscape and nature as the focus—at which time his work is classified with the “Contemporary Cuban Painters” group. He exhibited in numerous exhibitions in Cuba where appreciation for his painting achieved international recognition. His work is included in collections in Italy, Spain, Venezuela, Mexico and the United States. In 1995, Pozas traveled to Madrid in Spain and decided to make it his home. The person shown in the pictures is my wife. In them, I reflect on her desire to be alone with nature. Time is not important, only the place that choose to feel the peace she needs. Nature overflows in my work. To copy a landscape does not help me, for I am not satisfied with just that. I believe in the imagined, modeled landscape. Because nature is as interesting to discover as it is to imagine, there is always a place you thought of. Each landscape is a dialogue of the person with the trees, the rivers, roads, hills, and seas. The shapes and the curves that draw the horizon, or the limit where they begin or end, and the forests, are eager to get out of the pictures. Wind turbines are one of the things created by man that always attract my attention. I do not fight against them in my paintings, only I try to mimic their appearance and turn them into a kind more.
