"Doubts and Loves," the latest exhibition at Galerie Tanit, presents a series of drawings and 3-D installations by Cuban artist Ricardo Brey. Created under the premise of exploring the "Inferno," the first book of Dante's "Divine Comedy," some of Brey's work also delves into other philosophical and religious texts, using symbols to represent different facets of thought.The show comprises pieces from the last five years – including large-form drawings, artistic boxes containing various objects, and handmade books strewn across a table.Seeking to provide a different approach to representing Dante's work through art, many of the drawings feature images of plants and animals that are present in the first canto of "Inferno".One of the boxes that is linked to the "Inferno," titled "Gothic," contains pieces of carved wood from old churches, which Brey said he bought from a flea market, as well as various sketches of flowers, glass baubles and golden filigree.
