Thursday, October 30, Enrique Chagoya
In his prints, drawings and other works on paper, Mexican-American artist Enrique Chagoya appropriates and reorganizes images taken from the American mass media, Mexican folk art and religious sources, using them to create biting and often very humorous political and social satire. His art becomes a product of collisions between historical visions, ancient and modern, marginal and dominant paradigms.
