William Enrique Osorio is a Cuban artist who immigrated to the United States in 2007. His most recent work is a series of paintings titled “La Maldita Circunstancia del Agua Por Todas Partes.” (“The Unfortunate Circumstance of the Water Everywhere.”) Osorio references a poem by Virgilio Pineiro called “La Isla En Peso” [“The Whole Island”] These paintings explore the dualistic nature of the sea surrounding Cuba; which acts as an enclosure and simultaneously as a means of escape. The paintings, like Pineiro’s poem, reflect shifting notions of identity, desire, and attachment. Osorio employs a visual language consisting of the materials used by some to construct rafts (balsas) for traveling from Cuba to the United States.

Sarah Butler Peck is a Boston based artist whos work explores notions of attachment, memory, and the complexities of communication. Her recent video and installation work examine the phenomena of personal narratives that develop around our spaces and collections.
