Much of Kadir López’s work is inspired by a meditation on time. By blurring the lines between the past, present, and future, he critiques the effects of progress, or lack thereof, and its spiritual, economic, and political consequences on society. In mining Cuba’s rich and complicated history as well as personal events, he creates a multilayered reality that combines space and time into a unified visual universe.
