Rubén Rodríguez, Santa Clara, Cuba.

The former is only achieved by finding a concurrent thread, which in this event, from my perspective, is design, all of the expressions are highly fashioned: those of Rubén Rodríguez (Santa Clara), pending on the rhythm, of almost choreographic movements of the human body, and at the other end Jorge Rodríguez Diez (R10), Havana), succeeding the design of posters, consumer advertising, their forms and written messages. While Ivonne Ferrer (Havana), redesigns environments and characters using a large bank of graphic images in order to build their allegories, their metaphors. The latter encourages me to recognize among them, another common factor, the handling of metonymy, the use of tropes, which always refer me to the essays of Ricardo Pau-Llosa about our current visual arts, plagued by this literary figure.
