Separation, destruction, and isolation - on the surface, these themes don’t seem particularly optimistic. But in a recent exhibition at Galeria Inox in Rio de Janiero, Mayet explains that these sculptures aren’t supposed to have negative connotations. Instead, this blast or separation causes things to spread and reach other points. It allows them expand their horizons and travel to new places.
Like his work, Mayet left his native Cuba 22 years ago to explore the world, and he landed in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The sculptures seem to be a metaphor for his vibrant homeland. And wherever he is, his roots are always with him.
