Abstract:

This essay examines the presence of gold in Dominican American art, and particularly in the work of Scherezade Garcia, Julia Santos Solomon and Freddy Rodríguez. This article contends that this color serves as the basis for a Dominican American Neobaroque method, a strategy of appropriation that enables artists to revolt against the history of oppression in the Americas, and specifically in the Dominican Republic and its diaspora. The particularities of the Neobaroque in Dominican art that are complicated by notions of blackness and indigenousness are also explored. Through the Neobaroque, artists subvert myths and dreams constructed by an imperialist and neocolonialist economic and political system.
