Emilio Sanchez – The Bronx Museum of the Arts

The Emilio Sanchez exhibit URBAN ARCHIVES at the Bronx Museum of  the Arts was extended until June 17, 2012

This exhibition presents a group of works by Emilio Sanchez from The Bronx Museum of the Arts Permanent Collection, together with related archival material and a special interpretive project by Bronx-based artist Laura Napier. All the works depict commercial buildings in the Hunts Point area of the South Bronx. With a colorful palette and rigorous architectural design, these works depict the bodegas and auto shops of the Bronx in an almost idyllic style that makes a stark contrast with preconceived views of the borough.

A Gallery Talk and Reception:

Thursday, February 16, at 5:00 p.m.

Saint Joseph College Art Gallery

1678 Asylum Avenue,
West Hartford, Connecticut 06117-2791

This exhibition presents 17 works of art created by Emilio Sanchez (1921-1999), a Cuban-born American artist who won acclaim for his strikingly abstract paintings of architecture and landscape.  Born in Camagüey, Cuba in 1921, Sanchez studied at the Art Students League in New York after moving to that city in 1944.  Although he lived in New York for the rest of his life, his work continued to be inspired by the strong light and vibrant colors characteristic of his homeland.His well-known paintings of architectural themes focus on simplified forms rendered even more abstract by the play of light and shadow.  Traveling to countries around the Mediterranean in the 1970s and 80s, he found inspiration in the stark white vernacular buildings of Morocco.  He was also fascinated by the forms of New York skyscrapers seen against colorful dawn or sunset skies. Emilio Sanchez was the recipient of prestigious awards, including first prize at the 1974 Biennial in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  His work is represented in many major museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

New York, NY— Frederico Sève Gallery is pleased to present  is pleased to present Shaping Light, an exhibition of works by Emilio Sanchez (1921-1999) featuring thirteen paintings and works on paper completed from the early to mid 1970’s. The Cuban-born American artist developed an early fascination with light and shadow on colored forms, and is celebrated for his architectural geometric abstractions, which are distinguished by their simplified forms.

Shaping Light includes a series of works on paper that were influenced by his life in New York City, to where he proudly relocated in 1944 and remained until his death more than five decades later. While the 1960’s made way for a period of significant exploration in abstractionism in the artist’s life, the following ten years marked a time of architectural paintings and works that defines one of the highlights in Sanchez’s oeuvre.

Emilio Sánchez – Latin Collector, 2007

By John Angeline

Art Nexus Jan – Mar 2007

Emilio Sanchez was a product of two worlds. After a youth spent in Cuba immersed in Caribbean culture, he was then immersed in the Manhattan art scene during its “triumphant” years of the 1950s, and onward. From 1952 until his death in 1999, Sanchez resided permanently in Manhattan, but during this time he traveled extensively, first throughout the Caribbean and later through the Mediterranean countries.
