Enrique Flores: Viento de Abril
April 7, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Mexican artist Enrique Flores presents a collection of large-format prints and paintings made in his studio located in San Pablo Huitzo, a rural community in the Southeastern state of Oaxaca. He explores the possibilities of both disciplines as different ways to portray the daily life of his village.
After a successful exhibition of his Mujeres set of prints at Hecho a Mano gallery during summer ‘22, this show is a sample of his recent everyday work as an artist and master printmaker: “creating images, working with color, with drawing; the idea is to show a little bit of the environment where I live and work.”
This new exhibition includes metal engravings, wood engravings, oils on canvases, and mixed media work, where we encounter his signature colorful and oneiric imagery composed of animals, plants, landscapes, architecture, constellations, and women. In these larger formats, we can appreciate in more detail the grandeur of his mythic figures.
