"In a strictly representational painting Cubero is obviously figurative, but thematically it is not. His painting technique is a quality in works of science fiction. The space is not "real", but presents an area of "painted" on the events occurring outside public areas. "

"Cubero has set especially in the female nude as its central plastic interest. For him, a naked body, naked or semi-naked body is not a rhetorical expression of a particular issue, nor is its illustration. And it certainly is an essential part of plastic and conceptual approach that the artist resolved through a sort of frozen atmosphere, and certain significant signs (the figure and its environment), which act as part of a "still life" . In this case, if we analyze the paint as a traditional still life, the atmosphere that prevails in it leads to an allegorical expression. The female figure, even if they are portraits or taken from live models, becomes allegory in the strict sense defined by the dictionary, ie a "fiction that presents an object to the spirit, so you wake up thinking other object. " I Here the secrecy of the Costa Rican artist paint this. "

Belgium Rodríguez

Former member of International Association of Art Critics

"Rolando Cubero is a provocative artist, transgressive, poet and lover of life, trying to provoke emotions in the viewer through a technique and a very specialized subject: the eroticism. Thus, Cubero presents his cult of life, love and human sexuality. Rolando and his speech are coupled to a common goal: to capture the weightless and fragile beauty of the human body. "

Luis Rafael Nunez, Director of the Calderón Guardia Museum

"Addressing the painting of Rolando Cubero is facing a mystery: how a work of such serene sensuality coated can simultaneously provoke such disruptive impact.

His masterful technical command, its classical rigor, his fascination with detail, the placidity of his stroke, lead us to a universe of evocative erotica, free from aggression, affect the great mythical and religious themes that underlie our vision of the world, and is to exalt them, either to transgress.

The naked body, absolute monarch of his work allows him, in his splendid imperfection, deifying the human and humanizing the divine.

The magnetism which generates a dazzling Laocoon comes precisely from the proposed shift of focal point: the suffering of the characters look lost prominence, is hidden even. Who robs the body, above the fray, in ambiguous languid, crowned by the blunt honesty and fruity masculine gender. The fig leaf, lucidly abolished, is the denial of a divorce between body and spirit.

Imbued with a subtle dreamlike quality, the disturbing reality of the boxes Cubero is invaded by its own representation. Table immersed within its boundaries blurred picture and naturally upsets the laws that govern our environment.

Disturbing, compelling, evocative, entrancing, powerful painting Rolando Cubero appeals and wins. Enamora. "
