Currently on view at the Red Poppy Art House is a collection of recent paintings by Maykel Vargas (b. 1977, Cuba) which explores the arcane language of the primitive and the shamanistic. His works are of an Expressionist nature, which explores themes of the mystical and ancestral forces in nature as were represented and worshiped by our indigenous ancestry, or even the African deities, also carried over by our ancestry, which laid the laws that governed the natural world. The paintings are a window into the tribal, and express a dynamic sense of order and balance. You are more than welcome to come by and see, as well as share impressions on, the work of this emerging artist.
The paintings will remain on view until April 7, 2012, so make sure you enjoy them during your next visit to the Poppy
