Sleepless Illusions says
Revelry Gallery is excited to bring back local Cuban-born artist Julio Cesar for his third solo show!

This collection of Julio’s most recent oil paintings is a philosophical approach to the dialogue between his memory and subconscious while looking back on his life. Julio is an “installer of realities” - creating each work into a formal, poetic vision of an illusory present. "Sleepless Illusions" is by far his most personal show to date and he is eager to share it with the world.

"When I’m painting, I feel the curtains draw back to an open theater stage that is my mind. My stage begins to reveal itself with a spark of light and the crest of the shadows turn into strokes of color before I drift to sleep under a huge dark hat that is the night sky. This stage is my process where I stay perched amongst the night stars, floating in my paintings.” - Julio Cesar

Julio takes the word surreal to a whole new level. He told me he dreams of his paintings, each stroke, before creating them. They come from his dreams and his experiences, many of which have come from his flee from Cuba to the United States. It has been a tough, but extremely important pilgrimage to Louisville from Cuba. His entire family now lives here, the first time they have all been together in years. His two sons, Marcos and young Julio, are seen in many of his paintings.
