Over a series of months, Corina Matamoros maintained a long conversation with the Cuban artist Rocío García on her life and work, in order to understand her singular vision of reality. The result is a broad range of confessions that go from chosen subjects - mainly social, erotic and political - and the influence of comics on her narrative style of painting. As her storyboard paintings demonstrate, García is a visual writer with an extraordinary technique. This volume includes her last works: El Thriller
, Very, very Light and very oscuro. (Un policía con Alzheimer)
, El Castigador
, El regreso de Jack el Castigador
and The Mission
. Text in English and Spanish.
