Talking to Jerry Cabrera

Question: Tell me about “Cape Paintings “

My interest in the spectacle of the bullfight is to isolate and extract the elements of grace, drama and fluidity without the glorification of violence or any other obvious spectacles associated with the event.
Depicting bullfighting scenes with the exclusion of the bull and matador, the movement of the cape becomes the focus of a body of work that re-examines the intricacies of movement present in the initial stage of a bullfight. The obvious figurative elements are referenced only in their absence, amplifying the active beauty found in the movement of the bullfighter’s cape.
