This work belonged to a solo exhibition that I did in 2012, and it talked about a Latin American political issue. "Factory of libertarian hours" there are various elements that compose it: a map printed from the island of Cuba, metal butterflies, dryer felts brought expressly from Cuba, hairs of dog Chow Chow, industrial paint, wings of butterflies and cocoons in mass flexible metal. Here is the very fact of "marvelous reality" of the dream of freedom and independence of the island of Cuba, whose cartographic form resembles a larva of butterfly which symbolizes the potential of the ideal of freedoms that have always remained its inhabitants throughout its history, as in an action of metamorphosis, delayed and suspended to new times. Other elements are similarly identify the production of those hours of emancipation and struggles that has characterized their collective ideal through the ups and downs of its temporality: the star covered with animal hair reflects the harshness of this libertarian emancipation collapsed by the need for common survival of its inhabitants; butterflies, especially that of large wings, questioned the stronghold of an elite from the rest; Finally the wings without paint and cocoons, identify the elements of freedom remaining to assemble your Caribbean culture, a world where ideals don't match and go against clock needs to survive in the new era.

William Marquina was born in Mérida, Venezuela. Attracted by the works of great masters such as Picasso and Leonardo, at the age of 11 he participated in an outdoor Sunday painting workshop. After graduating in visual arts from the Universidad de Los Andes, he studied a master's degree in philosophy, followed by an unfinished doctorate, and was a short-term visual arts professor at the same university. From now on, William will pursue his passion for art by experimenting with different themes, techniques, styles and media. Disappointed by the unstable situation in his country, he emigrated to the city of Quito in 2019 where he currently lives and produces his works in the Oskan-huera painting studio, cloistered during the pandemic of 2020 and 2021, he will insist on his series Perceptions William's production has been experimentally versatile and challenges us with series characterized by the desire to search, study and complement the archaic and contemporary. His series are notable: Brillo, Picasso Copy, Matisse Copy, Da Vinci Copy and Aperceptions. In the latter, he highlights us in painting, the subjective complexity in the world of perceptions. In 2023 he exhibited his individual retrospective "Imbrications in painting" in the city of Quito; the International Painting exhibition at Casal Català Quito, 2021 and "Exhibition of Ecuadorian Painting" at the Mayor's Office of Quito, 2019. Other important individuals were: "Cartographies of the Terrestrial and Transterranean", Merida 2012; "Care. Path and Limit", 2007 and "Essences", 2007. Awarded the First Prize of Arts for University Students, in 2001.
