About the work
Exhibition history
Enrique Marty
Spanish, b. 1969
Follow

Through theatrical sculpture, painting, and video, Enrique Marty compulsively records everything around him, and mixes this imagery with fantasy and violence to expose life’s comedic and dark undertones. He draws inspiration from Francisco Goya’s satirical portrayals of the quotidian. Based on molds of family and friends, his grotesque puppet-like statues—featuring faces rendered in oil paint and the live models’ real hair—comment on societal absurdities and tensions. Children Parents (2006), for example, depicts two aging figures (the artist’s parents) sitting on opposite ends of a couch. Dressed as teenagers, they spark reflection on the phenomenon of adults taking on the qualities of children as they age. In Duel (2010), an animation comprising 1200 watercolor drawings, Marty’s parents reappear, this time drawing pistols at one other in an allegorical battle between the sexes.
