Enrique Fuentes

 

Enrique Fuentes
*1980, Mexico City
lebt und arbeitet in Wien und Berlin

 

Fuentes Gemälde sind trotz ihrer vordergründig expressiv-eruptiven Wirkung von einem langwierigen Malprozess geprägt, im Zuge dessen Farbschichten übereinandergelegt und wieder freigekratzt werden, um erneut mit dynamischen Gesten akzentuiert zu werden. Gerade die Korrelation zwischen den naturalistischen wiedergegebenen Figurendarstellung und den gestischen Spuren und expressiven Zumalungen evozieren düstere Spannungen, die auf die semantische Ebene rückwirken.
