FROM THE PRODUCERS: SOBRE DE LA SERIE 'ZINE / ABOUT THE 'ZINE SERIES
Estas series mezclan poesía cubana y arte canadiense como polinización cruzada entre estos dos frutos.
Esperamos que, como la vida en sí misma, las encuentres tentadoras!
Apples and guavas are two fruits with different origins and histories, perhaps entwined by the cyclic roundness of their forms. One can be compared with the delicious Canadian winter, the last fruit available in January maintaining its crispness in the cold storage, later to be pulled out from a frozen pocket; the other matures quickly in the cloying sweetness of a Caribbean evening, giving its delightful juice briefly before the heat and humidity begins the fermentation.
This series blends Cuban poetry and Canadian art as a cross pollination of these two fruits.
We hope that, like life itself, you find them tempting!
