Carlos QuintanaAdiós felicidad, 2008
Mixed media on canvas, 200 x 200 cm.
From February 6th to March 14th 2009, Galería Habana hosted the personal exhibition Ocho (Eight) by Cuban artist Carlos Quintana. With this suggestive title, fruit of the eastern philosophical influence assimilated in his work, various big-format pieces representative of the author were exhibited together. Two of them, Esto hasta se come (This can be even eaten) and Adiós felicidad (Good-bye happiness) –200 x 200 cm–, were acquired by collector José Busto and presented to the audience again in the group exhibition organized with motive of the opening of the independent project Avistamientos (Gallery of Contemporary Cuban Art) during the 11th Havana Biennial.
