    El viaje - Mónica Cuba (Galería Yvonne Sanguineti)

    Faithful to my promise, I’m including the new restored pages of Miracleman #5

    You can find my original review here:

    Now that I am rereading Miracleman I’m enjoying the stories even more than the first time… 

    The past of Doctor Gargunza is fascinating, he’s more than a villain, he’s one of the richest characters of Moore’s Miracleman, perhaps rivaled only by Evelyn Cream.

    This is why Marvel’s sixth issue (which coincides with Eclipse’s Miracleman #5) is probably one of my favorites.

    The horror of the past is summoned by Doctor Gargunza, and like defenseless spectators we have no other option but to continue to gaze upon his dark secrets.



    El 2010 solía ir a la Galería Yvonne Sanguineti  todos los meses. Y cuando se inauguró la muestra “El viaje” de Mónica Cuba, en noviembre, yo estuve presente.

    El otoño

    En ese entonces no conocía a Mónica pero sus cuadros y sus objetos artísticamente intervenidos suscitaron en mí una extraña emoción. Había algo valioso en ellos, algo que iba mucho más allá de la materialidad de, por ejemplo, una maleta, algo maravilloso que la artista lograba transmitir al público.

    4 años después, la Galería Yvonne Sanguineti volvió a convocar a Mónica Cuba. El resultado: “Mujer corazón de papel”, una muestra extraordinaria que es el testimonio irrefutable de la evolución artística de Mónica. A pasos agigantados, en estos últimos cuatro años, Mónica ha consolidado su visión, ha perfeccionado su técnica y ha pintado cuadros absolutamente impresionantes. 

    Mis dos obras favoritas se complementan mutuamente, no sólo por la temática sino también por el tratamiento cromático, por la calidez y frialdad contrastante que se desprende de ellos. Me refiero a “El otoño” y a “De espaldas a ti”, un cuadro inolvidable, de una intensidad sobrecogedora, que me acompañará en el recuerdo de aquí a 4, 10 o 30 años más.

    De espaldas a ti

    La muestra seguirá abierta al público hasta el día 19 de julio. La dirección es avenida Grau 810 Barranco. Están todos cordialmente invitados a darse una vuelta por ahí y a admirar tanto buen arte.

    About the Author - Arion

    Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog - – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.
