"Ramon Enich: Paintings"
2001-08-25 until 2001-09-16
Michael Dunev Art Projects
Torroella de Montgri, , ES Spain

Since 1992, Ramón Enrich (L'Igualada, Barcelona) has exhibited widely with one-person exhibitions in museums and galleries in Spain and abroad (France, Germany, US, Belgium, China). His work has been reproduced in numerous books and catalogues and can be found in the collections of private and publich institutions such as La Caixa, NH Hotels, the University of Barcelona, etc.

Ramón Enrich is a painter of exquisite urban landscapes rendered with an oblique light, clear and intense, that gives strong relief to the architectural elements that are the basis of his compositions. Referred to by the artist as a cross between Versailles and your everyday vegetable garden, the paintings of Ramón Enrich are created by the multiple applications of thin layers of paint that are subsequently frottéed and even erased from the canvas, resulting in evocative images that recall piazzas of antiquity or greco-egyptian agoras with the serenity of Pompeiian frescoes. A strong sense of perspective, a rich chromatic register and an ironic use of industrial and rural arquitectural structures (often marked with large and enigmatic typographical elements) in an endless landscape devoid of any figures, present the viewer with a stage set for a play yet to be realized.

With clear references to the somnolent piazzas of Giorgio De Chirico and to the paintings of California artist Richard Diebenkorn, whose abstract canvases present a landscape composed of geometric elements bathed in a clear light, Enrich continues with this work, a strong pictorial tradition marked by a language, unique to the artist, that presents the urban landscape in clearly abstract terminology. The exhibition Ramón Enrich will open on Saturday 25 August and will continue until 16 September. A group exhibition of prior projects will be presented in conjunction. Michael Dunev Art Projects is located in Torroella de Montgrí (Catalonia), on Carrer Major, 28. Besides organizing exhibitions of contemporary art during the year, the space publishes graphic work and invites international artists to its studios to work in the creation of works of art.
