Art somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now. Feel free to contact me at nikola.milosevic777@gmail.com

Architecture is all around us. Wherever we look, we can see something that we created, some kind of construction, be it the lone house in the hills, or majestic cities made out of thousands of objects. But don’t forget the bigger picture. Don’t forget the landscapes, which seem to be powerful enough to swallow anything man-made. Welcome to the world of Ramon Enrich and his unique conversations between architecture and landscapes. The artist creates his mysterious world using the personal language of shapes and symbols rather than simply accepting the already existing forms and rules.

The artist uses a personal language of shapes and symbols

Archetectural Painting

His style could be described as architectural painting. Dipping his toes in abstraction, Enrich constructs his own reality, both inspired and limited by geometry. Light is intensely oblique, and the paintings, devoid of any human presence, have an atmosphere that is enigmatic and intriguing. The theatrical design is loaded with irony, as the artist tries to bring to light what is hidden and to enable making connections without explaining anything. Ramon’s most recent work brings an increase in precision and strictness, inspired, without a doubt, with Mediterranean. The starting point of his work is a sketch, which is then worked on. Mistakes are a part of the process, but the artist hates them. However, when one does occur, he will simply paint over it. And many times, this painting-under-a-painting works really well, because it gives the piece a kind of pre-life, an energy which bursts out and enriches the work.

The atmosphere in paintings is enigmatic

Reconstructing the Reality

Enrich was born in Igualada, a town near Barcelona. After his studies of Fine Arts in Barcelona, he decided to travel and try to see some references to art and to painting. Grants he received at the time helped him significantly. The main idea behind visiting artists like Donald Judd and David Hockney, beside from learning about the art from them, was to see how they organized their lives as artists. He belongs to a generation which reconsiders reality, based on constructed and a pinch of metaphysical figuration limited by the rules of geometry. Since 1990, he has exhibited both as a solo artist and in group shows. His artworks are included in public and private collections in Spain, USA, Germany, Japan and France.

Reality is based on the costructed and a bit of metaphysical figuration

The Stage Is Set

The paintings of Ramon Enrich look like stages prepared for the plays. And that is their beautiful aspect because the viewers are allowed to be the directors and imagine and stage the plays and stories they like. Everything is provided, starting with a rich chromatic register, ironic use of architectural structures and a strong sense of perspective. Every single one of Enrich’s artworks invites the viewers to fill its endless landscape with the story they find most appropriate. It is quite rare for the viewers to be the finishing touch themselves in a wonderful process of painting.

He is represented by the Artistics, an online gallery based in Paris.

Ramon Enrich live and works in Igualada, Spain.
