Enrique Chagoya: Solo Exhibition

August 8 @ 8:00 am - October 6 @ 5:00 pm PDT

Free
A Work on paper by the artist Enrique Chagoya; huddled figures float top a sea leading to a tree spewing geometric shapes. The phrase, "The thinly thingness of things" rises above the scene against a cyan background in all caps and a western font.

A solo exhibition of Chagoya’s works on paper at the Pendleton Center for the Arts.
Chagoya uses familiar pop icons to create deceptively friendly points of entry for the discussion of complex issues. Because he is rooted in both American culture and Mexican culture, he’s able to move back and forth between the two, which informs his commentary on everything from history to current events. His work juxtaposes secular, popular, and religious symbols in order to address the ongoing cultural clash between the United States, Latin America and the rest of the world. He borrows from other artists, Marvel comics, prints by the European “Old Masters”, and other sources, removes images from their original context, then re-imagines them in combinations and juxtapositions that reveal absurdity, irony, and humor.
