This month, Biaggi & Faure Fine Art Gallery presents “Enmarcadas II” [Framed II], a series of metal sculptures by Puerto Rican artist Rafael Cabrera Díaz. Through the use of steel, bronze, and enamel the artist creates imagery of stylized feminine figures characterized by movement and rhythmic energy. Cabrera Díaz displays his sensibility in his works towards what he considers the essence of woman as a freethinking and powerful being.
Born in Santurce, Puerto Rico (1949), Cabrera Díaz studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez. During this period, he learned the wielding and casting techniques that he presently employs in his sculptures. He is pursuing advanced studies at the School of Plastic Arts of Puerto Rico.
Biaggi & Faure Fine Art Gallery is located at 1035 Jesús T. Piñero Avenue, Puerto Nuevo, Puerto Rico.
