His painting technique is a quality in works ofscience fiction. The space is not "real", but presents an area of "painted" on theevents occurring outside public areas. " "Cubero has set especially in the female nudeas its central plastic interest. For him, a naked body, naked or semi-naked body is nota rhetorical expression of a particular issue, nor is its illustration. And it certainly isan essential part of plastic and conceptual approach that the artist resolved through asort of frozen atmosphere, and certain significant signs (the figure and itsenvironment), which act as part of a "still life" . In this case, if we analyze the paint asa traditional still life, the atmosphere that prevails in it leads to an allegoricalexpression. The female figure, even if they are portraits or taken from live models,becomes allegory in the strict sense defined by the dictionary, ie a "fiction thatpresents an object to the spirit, so you wake up thinking other object”.
I Here the secrecy of the Costa Rican artist paint this. " Belgium Rodríguez Formermuseum director OAS, Washington, DC Former member of International Associationof Art Critics "Rolando Cubero is a provocative artist, transgressive, poet and loverof life, trying to provoke emotions in the viewer through a technique and a veryspecialized subject: the eroticism. Thus, Cubero presents his cult of life, love andhuman sexuality. Rolando and his speech are coupled to a common goal: to capturethe weightless and fragile beauty of the human body. " Luis Rafael Nunez, Director ofthe Calderón Guardia Museum "Addressing the painting of Rolando Cubero is facinga mystery: how a work of such serene sensuality coated can simultaneously provokesuch disruptive impact. His masterful technical command, its classical rigor, hisfascination with detail, the placidity of his stroke, lead us to a universe of evocativeerotica, free from aggression, affect the great mythical and religious themes thatunderlie our vision of the world, and is to exalt them, either to transgress. The nakedbody, absolute monarch of his work allows him, in his splendid imperfection, deifyingthe human and humanizing the divine. The magnetism which generates a dazzlingLaocoon comes precisely from the proposed shift of focal point: the suffering of thecharacters look lost prominence, is hidden even. Who robs the body, above the fray, inambiguous languid, crowned by the blunt honesty and fruity masculine gender. Thefig leaf, lucidly abolished, is the denial of a divorce between body and spirit. Imbuedwith a subtle dreamlike quality, the disturbing reality of the boxes Cubero is invadedby its own representation. Table immersed within its boundaries blurred picture andnaturally upsets the laws that govern our environment. Disturbing, compelling,evocative, entrancing, powerful painting Rolando Cubero appeals and wins.Enamora. "
