Vincench represents the essence of the political artist, the committed creator who does not cease in his attempt to unveil the contradictions and excesses of political power in Cuba from the showcase offered by the art system. He belongs to a family of artists for whom art does not refer to pure and simple visual delight, but must also exist as a field of reflection and questioning. His aesthetic search and approach are committed to his perception of the world; they are vehicles of recognition and accusation. Art, for him, is an object of thought and denunciation, a warning device that serves to awaken consciences. This cognitive dimension that Vincench imposes on his work is inseparable from his critical vision of Cuban reality. His role as an artist approaches that of a researcher, since he presents a vision that resists that unique and harmonious perception of culture generally offered by today's society. But if the works Vincench produces are essentially political knowledge devices, they are so only within the framework of an aesthetic stance and a desire for formal innovation.
Works by José Ángel Vincench are present, among others, to the collections of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana, the Frost Museum in Miami, the Rubin Foundation in New York, the Perez collection in Miami, the UBS art collection, the Chris von Christierson Collection in London, the Celia Birbragher Collection in Miami, the CIFO Collection in Miami and many private collections around the world.
