About the Artist

Ana Albertina Delgado is a Cuban artist born in Havana who is currently Miami based. She completed her art studies at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, in 1988. Together with four other artists, she founded the art group known as Puré. Ana Albertina Delgado has had several solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad and her work is included in several museum and private collections.

Ana Albertina Delgado engages in visual research focusing on the primary objectives of a woman’s history interconnecting different life stages and levels of social and cultural status. She chooses to present these sequences, like a storybook with a cinematic perspective, in a way that might allow for the creation of a complex feminine viewpoint. She uses as a reference traditional oral country stories and myth, but also takes the contemporary city woman as a central character, using a narrative guided by ambiguous and sensual feminine elements for a dreamlike reflection on a woman’s daily life.
