Celebrating our Anniversary we bring the Artist Jose Enrique Gonzalez with the work entitled “Equestrian and Rams”.
The Artist exposes his ideas and thoughts about his creation. Thus, on this occasion Gonzalez expresses to us: “Describing a work of figurative indole, it is simple when the subject and its characters are explicit and executed without regard or reservation, directly before the viewer’s eyes and exposed to their subjective perception, generating an impact emotional that captures your interest or immediate rejection”.
