Ezequiel Taveras

Taveras makes it clear when in his own words he says, “I think that all my work is supported by the use of symbols, but the images I use exceed, in many instances, the qualities of the symbol in itself. Rather, my heart retains, as in many of our primitive cultures, the extrapolated abstract qualities beyond its physical condition. In my work, the heart becomes a leitmotiv that keeps hold of multiple characteristics above and beyond its natural ones, and the trivialized, simplified, graphic icon that we are familiar with”.
