Lilian Garcia-Roig- “Homage to Vinales”
& Perri Neri- “Shifting Ground”

Join Gallery114@HCC Ybor City Campus for the opening reception of Hyphenated Nature on Thursday, February 17, 2022 from 5:00–8:00 p.m.

Who we are and where we are from—two seemingly simple inquiries—are complex territories for negotiation that shape the core of our personal identity. Florida-based artist Lilian Garcia-Roig (b. 1966, Cuba) uses landscape painting as a vehicle for examining notions like sense of place, belonging, and identity in both perceptually-based plein-air paintings and conceptually-based studio works. In Hyphenated Nature at Gallery114@HCC, Garcia-Roig displays her two approaches to landscape painting side-by-side, reconciling on-site works that capture dense, expressive vegetation with paintings made in her studio using Cuban soil. Seen through the lens of Garcia-Roig’s Cuban-American experience, these distinct bodies of work call to mind the intricate nature of one’s own attachment to time, place, and the lands we inhabit.

A talk by artist Lilian Garcia-Roig will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Mainstage Theater, YPAB.
