Emilio Cruz, Genetic Engineering, 1988. Oil on Canvas, 60 7/8” x 73 1/4”, courtesy of the Anita Shapolsky Gallery
A solo exhibition of painter, writer, and performance artist Emilio Cruz. William Zimmer of The New York Times writes, “What is ultimately wicked about Mr. Cruz is that he won’t let his primitive sources lie. He tries to make them relevant for us as we are about to enter another millennium. Primitive things always retain their ability to unsettle, and one feels that Mr. Cruz is, comfortably for him but uncomfortably for us, thoroughly at home with them.” Includes the work of Emilio Cruz.
