Davidoff is proud to unveil the first Limited Art Edition, featuring the works of the Davidoff Art Initiative’s first resident Dominican Artist: critically acclaimed Caribbean artist, Quisqueya Henríquez. Launched in 2012, the Davidoff Art Initiative supports contemporary art and up and coming artists from the Caribbean.
The compositions created by Henríquez for the Davidoff Limited Art Edition call to mind the intricate handcraft of cigar making and evoke the multiple phases involved in the tradition of cigar manufacturing. The richly colored images obtained from the layering of multiple photographs of tobacco leaves, create a composition that, while abstract, hints at the source materials involved in its creation.
“I have always had a mind to work with images that illustrate time and the many different steps involved in the tradition of cigar making,” said Quisqueya Henríquez, who was born in Cuba and now resides in the Dominican Republic. The finely layered images, inspired by the artist’s multiple visits to tobacco fields in the Dominican Republic, both capture the time-consuming process of cigar making and references the artist’s native Caribbean culture. One of the most persistent images throughout her prints is the image of the tobacco leaf, especially the complexity of its natural design.
