    Artist Statement

     

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    -J.J.R. Tolkien

     

    This exhibition of images celebrates and illuminates “kikontheroad,” which is an artistic space that aims primarily to offload memories of places where I had the luck to live in during my journeys through countries I had {and continue to have} the opportunity to walk through. These images are testament, in many ways, to how an emotive system deals with an overcharge of emotions where these feelings tend to surface, at its own pace, in digital art expressions. Sharing at times images of these experiences is, one could say, a short cut to the narrative of storytelling. And I strive to continue telling stories through my work.

     

    There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.

    – Robert Louis Stevenson

    About The Author

    Domingo Penalver represents aaduna’s soul. He was born on a Sunday on a plantation owned by Penalver in pre-Castro Havana, Cuba. The son of an African and mixed-race (African and Chinese) parents, Domingo’s style was suave, sophisticated, humble, and proud. A man’s man, Domingo enjoyed hand rolled cigars and rich, strong Cuban coffee. Eventually settling in Tampa, Florida, he married an African American woman and they produced several children, some who became multi-lingual. Domingo’s spirit represents the complexities of diversity and multiculturalism that aaduna seeks to explore through words and images. The Gallery that bears his name will present work that brings the observer to other cultures; different perspectives of living and existing, and enables the viewer to better understand the intricacies that shape and mold each of us in the world we elect to exist and prosper in.
