Arte de Cubanos.
° La Habana, 1941.
Carlos Trillo spent his childhood and adolescence in New York, USA.
He is acknowledged as the most representative Cuban material painter for both his technique and his contributions to plastic expression. He achieves in his works an authentic integration of plastic elements and non-plastic elements. Out of these emerges by fusion a true work of art.
The ideas of abstract expressionism are present in his material painting. Oblivious to the criticism of those who consider this expression an aesthetic folly, Trillo has worked out this strain of abstractionism for more than forty years. Such consistency has made him into one of the few Cuban abstract painters for whom this way of expression is not a mere form of experimentation.
Some critics consider that Trillo has a great mastery of the matter’s metaphor as well as of the aesthetic consciousness, which he uses to endow life to inanimate things, achieving thereby that we become delighted accomplices of his art whenever we contemplate his paintings.
