Roberto Fabelo’s images appear to us from a different dimension. Strangely beautiful nude female torsos, sometimes winged, at other times sporting beaks, peer out of pages from ancient texts that seem to describe these haunting and unusual creatures. The metamorphosis of these human figures into Fabelo’s unique creatures parallels the transformation that takes place in the viewer who is forced to question their own perceptions of fantasy and reality. Fabelo’s Anatomy offers a glimpse into the complex world of imagery emerging from the mind of one of Cuba’s most compelling artists. This cameo exhibition at MOLAA is the first solo museum exhibition of the artist’s work in the U.S.
