This exhibition shows the work of the Puerto Rican-American
artist Jose Camacho who is based in Montclair, New Jersey. His
evocative works combine words and images to eloquently
express his complex political, personal and artistic identities. The
exhibition includes both paintings and prints with themes drawn
from Camacho’s heritage. They are particularly rich in their
layered allusions to the religious and political beliefs popular in
contemporary Puerto Rico. These tropes are explored through
such charged monuments as massive cemeteries and idioms of
colloquial language. In a group of works the minimalist outline
map of Puerto Rico becomes a powerful expressive form of
nationalist myths and realities for Camacho. For additional
information please visit the Gallery Website.
