ENOC PEREZ: Paradise at Guild Hall

Enoc Perez: Paradise

24 April - 31 May 2021

Guild Hall 

158 Main Street
East Hampton, NY 11937 


Perez's Guild Hall exhibition, Paradise, will explore the theme of natural and man-made calamities. 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. Other paintings depict spontaneous memorials made up of candles, flowers and photos of the deceased. Paradise will be exhibited in Guild Hall's Moran and Spiga Galleries and will primarily be made up of works that have never been exhibited.
