Osy Milian ( *1992, Havana) places images of herself in the center of her paintings. They are obviously not traditional self-portraits, one of the most established genres in the history of western art. But whoever sees these works will remember the words of Pablo Picasso: “At first, self-portrait is a apprenticeship and later it becomes a representation; here is how I see myself, here is how I think I saw myself.” The artist represents her personal experiences in a very distinctive way. She calls “Fragments” both the group of works and, of course, each one of them separately, which may suggest links of a broken chain that the viewer must either put together or for which he must find a meaning. Many people understand fragmenting to mean taking apart, dividing, or breaking up a unit. Here, however, the fragmentation is only a pretext for the self-representation of a life’s moments; experiences of the artist as an individual, and at the same time as a person who communicates with other parts of her generation’s group memory.
