  • Enrique Martinez

In the world of Enrique Martinez’s vivid paintings and drawings, our contemporary fears, confusions, contradictions and obsessions are mutated into Burroughsian nightmares that seem to seethe and squirm before our eyes. In works that are bursting with radical, often grotesque, always-colorful images, Martinez tinkers with a “universe in which all victories are pyrrhic” and our tangled mess of a society knows no redress and expects no redemption. With his solo show “Cascarones,” Martinez strives to depict the way in which our basest instincts seem to have run amok with our political, cultural and social existences.
