Una converzaciÃ³n insostenbile. - [Red Trillium Press] Norberto Marrero PÃ¬rez - 2015. 
Havana:: Red Trillium Press,, 2015.. Edition of 9. 6 x 7.5" paper-covered box with book tied into base. Box with wraparound attached cover. Text in Spanish. Book 4.75 x 6.75" closed; 12 pages. Double-sided accordion structure. Woodcuts. Signed and numbered by the artist on the box. The imagery of kings and nudes used in previous work by PÃ¬rez continues in this work. Each page is an image of a conversation with deceptively simple dialogue, just a few words. Norberto Marrero, artist statement: "My work reflects a poetic image that offers commentary about power, gender relations, and social class. All this through metaphors where society is shown as a large theatrical stage. The critical sense of my work comes from the use of character types such as the king, the jester, the harlot, and androgynous characters where the nude, eroticism, and humor all play fundamental roles. My most recent work use significant moments in art history, especially related to engraving: Japanese prints with the figure of the geisha, and the legendary Rhino DÃ¼rer. All this in the midst of a philosophical and poetic context where reflections about existence, dreams, sexuality, and dissimilar paths are left open to interpretation by the viewer.
