Luis Cruz Azaceta’s paintings and mixed media works use the recurring theme of the displaced individual. Marked by his own exile from Cuba—he was born there in 1942 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1960, in the wake of Castro’s take-over—the artist realized that home is something he carries with him from place to place. Through his piercing expressionism, Azaceta depicts the frailty of human existence in a world full of social anarchy, historically mandated violence, and natural chaos.
