Dream Weaver, colorful woven canvas triptych

About

Dream Weaver Triptych uses strips of painted raw canvas of irregular size woven into the bachground color field of painted, primed canvas. The overall design is loosely planned in advance and then adjusted "on the fly" for the best visual effect as the weaving prgresses. the background isin ombre tones of grey and graduates to lighter tones. It may look silver but is not silver paint. Jose Castro was born in Matanzas, Cuba in 1947. In 1961, when he was 14, he was sent to Miami to escape the Revolution. Later he was joined by his mother and sister in Miami, where he has lived ever since. In 1999 he returned to his native Cuba to visit for the first time since he left. The experience was emotionally transformational. It made him see how his early life there shaped who he is today. Also, as a result, that emotional catharsis allowed him to embrace his past and integrate it peacefully with his present identity. Jose graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture. His professional career path took him from architecture to interior design in Miami where he practiced in several prominent design firms and ultimately including his own. His fields of practice included commercial, residential, hospitality and cruise ships. Jose now devotes himself fulltime to his art. At present, Jose’s approach to painting can be described as experimental and exploratory; it is purely non-representational. In contrast to his more structured design practice, he enjoys the freedom of expression and lack of constraints that painting provides him. He likes to create images that are visually interesting and intriguing. Besides acrylic paint, Jose likes to use a variety of media such as grout, cardboard, packaging materials and other discarded materials to create his multi-layered works. Although Miami is his permanent residence, Jose also spends time and paints in Cape Cod during the off-season months.
