Artist’s Statement

“My Silicone paintings are influenced by the Miami lifestyle, depicting stylized contemporary interpretations of water, the ocean and crashing waves using Silicone and resins as my materials. My works reflect and mimic movement and textures of the ocean and it’s translucent qualities. I use a caulk-gun as my brush to drip silicone onto panels forming 3-dimensional line drawings. With the silicone dripping method I am able to create lines that are skinny, wide, long, and short. Some areas are blocked in with strategic dripping patterns building patches of silicone textures throughout my paintings. I explore different compositions and motion using my dripping techniques within these patterns. Other techniques have more sculptural characteristics using the silicone as a ball of clay, molding it carefully with my hands and fingers to make indentations within the material. Colors are mixed in the resins creating a glossy liquid finish to every painting. My work is about organization and control of the materials. My goal is to further explore the esthetic characteristics of these materials and to communicate a new concept of textured art expressing movement and rich visual patterns within the study of water and its rhythm.” – Enrique Machado

Biography

Enrique Machado resides and works in Miami, Florida. He started the arts in 4th grade when he was encouraged to apply for a Visual Arts magnet program at South Miami Elementary School. Machado continued his studies onto other art magnet programs including South Miami Middle School, Design and Architecture High School and New World School of the Arts from which he graduated in 2004. Awarded a scholarship to Kansas City Art Institute he joined the sculpture department which gave him the platform and freedom to explore different materials.

It wasn’t until 2007 that he discovered a new passion for a certain material called silicone. The artist was intrigued by its slick texture and the organic strings of rubber. Naturally, he combined his passion for painting with his curiosity of silicone and traded in the paintbrush for a caulk-gun.

Painting with silicone made sense to Machado and became an obsession. Even the action of painting took new meaning and had become a performance on its own. Through the years he had experimented with different application techniques and learned many ways of using the media as a voice for his art.

Enrique Machado is among one of Miami’s new generation of upcoming young talents. He has gained local attention from collectors, critics, and art fairs. He has had essays written by Miami New Times art critic Carlos Suarez De Jesus, Triennial Miami’s Director Jorge Luis Gutierrez, and Miami artist Sergio Garcia.

Machado has shown at “Spectrum Miami Art Fair”(Art Basel Week), “LMNT Gallery”, “Gallery 212 Miami”, “1310 Gallery”, “The Hangar Gallery”, “Ave 74 Gallery”, Flagler Art Space gallery”, and “Buena Vista Gallery”. His work is currently available exclusively at Gallery 212 Miami which has been his home gallery for more than 3 years.
