Born in Havana, Cuba, Lidzie Alvisa is known as one of the most proficient artists of contemporary Cuban conceptual photography. Since her years of training at the Superior Institute of Arts, self-reinvention and experimentation have hastened Lidzie Alvisa’s development. While still keen on installations, her most recent work shows us the very edges of her conceptual concerns while still delighting us with new methods, techniques and media. Her work perfectly embodies this ideo-aesthetic and deeply personal quality that so characterizes it. The visual language she has developed reveals her philosophical biases while ruminating on deep, existential questions. The result is a body of work that resists sexist categorization or reductive generalization. Lidzie Alvisa has managed to masterfully weave together a feeling of universality with an incisive relationship to beauty.
