ENOC PEREZ: PARADISE

Moran & Spiga Gallery

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.

KARIN WAISMAN: THE HORIZON IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE

Woodhouse Gallery

Karin Waisman is an Argentinian, multidisciplinary artist whose practice investigates the rhythmic cadence and pulsating patterns of nature. Her work includes large-scale public installations, wall reliefs, and drawings that explore our perception of the natural world— its fluid and contradictory processes, boundless growth, and imminent threat of disorder.

In this new exhibition at Guild Hall, Waisman will present The Horizon Is Not a Straight Line, a site specific, 250-inch long cast resin and ceramic wall relief that investigates the notion of the border, conceiving it not as a straight line but a complex contact point between two elements that push and pull while continuing to support one another. Also included are two series of Waisman’s pencil drawings on mylar.
