“All art communicates, even if it’s simply to capture the beauty of the moment. My art speaks in different languages to those who are open to receive their own personal message in it.” _________Cesar Garcia

Cesar Garcia’s mixed media artwork is bold and rich in symbolism, figures, forms and a language of its own. His affinity for the “old world” is evident throughout his body of work. Monochromatic colors lend to the theme, with paint dripping in an abandoned method adding to the enchantment. His “other-worldly” images will captivate your attention and just when you think you’ve interpreted his work you discover an element of surprise, a hint of the future, or then again, what might have always been present: primitive and modern worlds brought together on one canvas after another. Cesar’s unique art invites us to explore the mysteries of the universe, capturing our imaginations as we consider the endless possibilities of Time Dilation.

Cesar Garcia’s artwork can be found in various public collections including the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, Tallahassee, Florida; the University of Miami (Casa Bacardi), Institute for Cuban and Cuban American Studies, the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, Connecticut, Art in Public Places, Village of Wellington, Florida, just to name a few. In 2006 he was selected to participate in group shows at the Ormond Memorial Museum and Garden, Ormond Beach, Florida, The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) Long Beach, California, and the 2008 prestigious group exhibition at the NMCAH, National Museum of Catholic Art and History, New York City.
