Moisés FinaléCuadro abstracto cubano, 2016
Mixed media on canvas, 222 x 257 cm.
[…] His essentially expressive work, of high classic language and great technique in the elaboration, does not allow his pigeonholing in the comings and goings of abstract and figuration. Still, his proposal contains a refinement and suggestion so full of metaphors, mythologies and dreams, with such deep, well-thought mastery, that –undoubtedly and running the risk of announcing it– Finalé is a contemporary baroque painter, essential heir of this aesthetic language molded by Alejo Carpentier in El Siglo de las luces. And we wish to clarify that baroque, as we understand it, is more a virtue of inspiration and style than a scholasticism of closed definition brought from the west. Finalé’s painting presents this questioning. 1
