RANCE JONES: The Lingering Revolution

Video-Show

"Move further away from Havana's touristy center, and you'll start to hear the pounding rattle of Post-War automobile engines, blaring beat music coming from every balcony, roosters crowing, a frenzy of human voices... that's when you start to experience modern Cuba... an honest story of Cubans is one of resilience, ingenuity, and creativity, despite their political realities."

-Rance Jones

"Form and content are perfectly married.
If Rance Jones had not been an artist, he would have been an anthropologist. He has painted as if
his life depends on it."

-Antonio Alvarez, Conservator Emeritus, Alvarez Conservation, New york

"Rance Jones’ figures are psychological portraits, the arias in an opera, not its incidental music."

-Antonio Alvarez, Conservator Emeritus, Alvarez Conservation, New york

"Each painting I do is...carefully composed like a still life. They are not in the moment snapshots of life, they're not paintings of photographs...I want to create visual narratives that celebrate color and texture, anatomy, symbolism, emotion...The background textures vibrate and compete with the figure like a complex Cuban rhythm."

- Rance Jones
