Ever Fonseca Cerviño

Ever Fonseca Cerviño
“Ever is a born creator of myths, recreating the Cuban popular universe, especially that of the countryside from which he himself came. His work combines poetry, naïve lyricism, and references to neosurrealism as seen through its local assimilations. Since his first solo show in 1971 his work has been dominated by drawing. A strong line, like the lead of a stained-glass window, outlines his heroes and animals, tinted with an earthy coloration that recalls the backgrounds of traditional paintings from New Guinea. The works that first made Ever known in 1970 were enormous canvases with a profusion of beings, elementary idols with stick-figure bodies recalling those of Victor Braunner; a recreation of the fundamental concerns of human nature: genesis, the gods, death, the hero.” Menéndez González, Aldo. Ever Fonseca. Poliscopio Cubano II. in cat. Ed. Galería Heller, Madrid, Summer, 1993.
