Camagüey, Cuba, Jun 19.- The roofs of the reddish city of Camaguey inspired the American plastic artist Laura White Carpente, in her most recent collection of porcelain pieces, an expression of love and gratitude for the “soft region of shepherds and hats ”, according to Villa Andariega, the National Poet of Cuba, Nicolás Guillén.

Highlights the work Red tiles from Camagüey create trails, a piece in which the author embedded broken roof tiles from the princely town «I am so excited !!!», she stated.

In the context of the national event November Photographic 2019, invited by the Provincial Council of Plastic Arts, the creator participated with her recycling proposals (from disused materials that become artistic work).

Laura was impressed by the latticework and cobbled streets, the reddish roofs, the beauty of the squares and squares, the architectural ensemble that highlights its 14 churches and the hospitality of the Camagüey’s citizens.

«It would be a dream come true to exhibit again in Camagüey,» Laura White Carpenter, who combines art with her profession in Occupational Therapy in the United States, nostalgically emphasized. She feels the need to return with her “feet back and forth, the great rest of your chest”, paraphrasing the Cuban National Poet.

She regretted not being able to participate in the photographic November 2020 event as a consequence of the new coronavirus. «I am very hopeful that all those problems will be resolved and maybe 2021 will be a year for my visit again.»

The ceramist, who has traveled as an artist to four continents: Africa, Asia, Europe and America, expressed the satisfaction of sharing her works of art with Agramontinos «for the sake of friendship and cultural exchange. Especially since many aspects of my art were directly influenced and improved by my time in Camagüey ”.

She explained that in the roof tiles of the former town of Santa María del Puerto del Príncipe she found inspiration and her porcelains she intends to “apply for an exhibition. … I’m incredibly excited. These pieces represent a significant growth in my skills and promote my idea of ​​rebirth and reuse of materials. ” (Photos: Todd Monjar).(Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
