An abstraction is a powerful tool that allows artists to question reality, challenge our understanding of the world, and expand our horizons beyond what we can see and touch.

In this square format piece combining collage and painting, the artist - a romantic visual poet - is aware that all design is inspired by the Natural that gives life to thoughts in a way that is open to interpretation and subjective experience.

Different shapes, round, cubic forms, line and strokes obtained by scratching, textures, words cut presented backward as a mystery that can be pierced.

Through a process of cutting, layering, and highlighting, the artist imbues the materials and colours with deeper meaning. At the bottom, a grounded and strong base is strengthened by dark colours and the absence of forms and details. This technique of creating a sense of energy and motion within an otherwise static composition is fully mastered in this artwork. The composition's towering and upright shapes naturally guide the viewer's gaze upwards, creating a dynamic interplay between spiritual themes and verticality.

Born in Havana in 1971, Antonio Dojer’s abstract work reflects the colourful culture, vibrant community, and often tumultuous social environment of his native Cuba. Yearning to create and express beyond the political rigidity of his country, Dojer went on to study at the San Alejandro School of Art in Spain and ultimately established residency in the United States. Working in series, Dojer integrates his love of music and Afro-Cuban dance into the urban landscape of his youth, combining representational elements of rhythm and passion with figurative references. Dojer aspires to return to Cuba one day and instil his love of painting into a new generation of young artists.
