The Antology shows artworks of Corratge (b. La Havana, Cuba 1928) an artist that has worked for more than fifty years in Cuba in the tendency called Geometric Abstraction, he was the founder of the group called Diez Pintores Concretos (Ten Concrete Artists, 1958 – 1961) altogether with Lolo Soldevilla, Sandu Darien, Jose Maria Mijares and Rafael Soriano, among others. The pieces exhibited in this show most of them untitled, are similar or different among themselves, according to their colors, their combinations or some vertex or point of equilibrium that stand out in the composition. The color spots are conceived with edges geometrically precise.
One of the founders of the Concrete Abstract Art in Cuba, motivated by that delirium of perfection which he could only achieved through geometry. His love for Japanese painting and design gave his work a precise touch of lineal purity. With a reduced chromatic spectrum. Corratge organizes forms in space, which as mathematical proportions enable a strict order. Elsa Vega Dopico.
Corratge’s painting moves the esthetic pleasure, to the peaceful order of the elements, to the sensual recreation of the glance. His painting is an expression of the reasoning, the synthesis, the intellect and also, by a strange paradox, of poetry. Mario Enrique
