Extranjera poem by Marjorie Agosin
Montreal, Quebec / Miami:: LR Studio Inc,, 2009.. One-of-a-Kind. 11.75 x 10"; 22 pages. Watercolor and ink on St Armand light blue, white, and gray handmade paper. Handwritten text, the poem in its original Spanish. Bound in gray wraps with title stenciled on front cover. Paper boat tipped on front cover. Signed and dated by the artist. Extranjera resulted from Rubio's exhibition in the fall of 2009 at Montreal's Beaux Arts des Ameriques gallery. It is based on a poem La Extranjera by Marjorie Agosin, a poet from Chile and professor at Wellesley College. "Outside the Box, in Art and Life" by Lydia Martin, Miami Herald, May 2009: "… As always, Rubio, a voracious lover of literature, especially poetry, has found her inspiration in words: ... '''It's by a Chilean poet, Marjorie Agosin, a friend and a professor of Spanish at Wellesley,' Rubio says. 'I feel like a foreigner, or an extranjera even, because I'm gay. Even in Miami I feel like a foreigner because I was born in Cuba and lived in Puerto Rico, Italy, Boston, New York. When I came to Miami 20 years ago, I found people who had never lived anywhere else but here. Their only point of reference was Miami. Miami has never been my point of reference. And I'm a Cuban artist, but I'm not in a lot of Cuban collections. Hispanic collectors don't really know my work because I went to the side of American galleries. And because I reject some of the tendencies of contemporary art, that makes me a sort of outcast in the mainstream art world, too.'"
