Gallery Talk with Enoc Perez and Christina Mossaides Strassfield: Saturday, May 22 at 3pm
Moran & Spiga Gallery
Curator: Christina Strassfield
Enoc Perez is a contemporary Puerto Rican born multimedia artist best known for his paintings and oil stick drawings. Perez’s Guild Hall exhibition, Paradise, will explore the theme of natural disasters. Through large-scale paintings, Perez refers to the devastation that Puerto Rico experienced during the 2017 Hurricane Maria. Instead of focusing on the physical destruction, the artist paints bent, but not broken, palm trees to represent the hope that Puerto Rico will move forward and recover.
The exhibition will include paintings, sculpture and drawings that have been created specifically for Guild Hall’s installation. Paradise will be exhibited in the Moran and Spiga galleries and will be made up primarily of works that have never shown.
