FOCUS ON GUZPEÑA
Enrique Rodríguez García was born in 1964 in the small town of Prado de la Guzpeña, located in León, in Northwestern Spain and from where he took his name.
The "Gamusinos" series is inspired by Spanish ancestral tradition. A Gamusino is an imaginary animal in a children’s game played at night. The goal is to chase or hunt the Gamusinos, but the children must ask what these creatures look like. The person in charge of the game so inspires the imagination of these children that they soar until they see Gamusinos in the trees, the stones or the brushes. Using this series as his own game, Guzpeña tries to give shape to these imaginary beings, inhabitants of made-up worlds.
Landau Contemporary is proud to present new works by this dynamic and talented artist, currently on exhibition at the gallery.
