Passages presents the vibrant narrative paintings of Reynier Llanes an established Cuban artist (Pinar del Rio, 1985) now based in the United States. Llanes combines and contrasts scenes from nature and daily life with a mystical and imaginative elegance. Drawing from his own memories and experience as an artist, an émigré, and an immigrant as well as his studies of literature, history, and science, Llanes’s invites viewers into his unique dreamworlds. His explorations of personal and societal passages, both physical and spiritual, sensitively communicate common threads in humanity.  Currently living in Miami, Llanes spent 6 years working in Charleston.  This exhibition pulls from his recent series of large-scale oil paintings, as well as his unique coffee watercolor paintings—a style he has dubbed Espressionism.
