My name is Hubert Caño
I am an artist from San Juan Puerto Rico
I like working in a social, religious and contemporary.
I like to work the art of recycling and my last appearance was at the Contemporary Art Museum of Puerto Rico 2009
This work is titled Sacred Cartons
This worked on milk cartons with a message of breast milk through a actualy product dedicated to the Virgin of the milk.
This virgin is from the Netherlands and is part of Spain.
The Virgin of Milk is an iconographic subject that probably she begins in the catacombs of Priscila, where is a supposed pictorial representation of the Virgin in the ceiling of a tomb. The symbolic meaning would be double: the Virgin would feed Christ as the Church would feed the Christians. This work this directed to a space of reflection on the relation between the maternity and the sexuality.
" Sacred Cardboards”
Are one criticizes subtle and delicate as it is the subject of maternal milk, and the present difference to a time where the process of the lactancia is different. Of equal way this sample where each Virgin of milk appears is an approach of faith and spirituality
Characters also find fat (women) are those that are always in my work. http://hubcano.blogspot.com/
About my artwork
In The aesthetic appreciation of Hubert Caño's vocabulary there are no easy interpretations. there are no sweet or familiar images and lines.
The composition and content of his paintings are as complex as life itself and as the painter confides,like him
The artist always takes risks every time he exhibits his art and Hubert is twice a risk taker.
He presents himself to others with a difficult thematic and an unusual conventional presentation.
His 'GORDAS"(fat women)like he calls them,almost all the time nude defy the canons of beauty established by Vougue,Vanity Fair and MTV
These rounded figures are messengers of inconformity from the painter before the church hypocrisy,sexual reprssion.women exploitation by means of publicity which also serves as instruments for the exorcism of their enner demons
