Enoc Perez
by Assouline
Enoc Perez is the first comprehensive monograph on the Puerto-Rican born artist, and this book presents a selection of his work including paintings, drawings, printmaking, and sculptures from the 1990s to the present. Richly illustrated with over one hundred color plates, Enoc Perez chronicles the artist’s development over the past twenty years. Though his style and technique have evolved, Perez has continued to explore the themes of modernism, nostalgia, and Caribbean culture through his work. 
In addition to images and installation shots from past exhibitions, Enoc Perez features essays and interviews with the artist including one by Bob Colacello, former editor of Interview magazine, and a frequent contributor to Vanity Fair.

About Enoc Perez

The Optimist.

There’s a sense of place in Enoc Perez’s work. Sometimes it’s a very small room shared by you and another person; sometimes it’s a building, a hotel, an architectural icon or a landscape. The effect is invariably the same. Perez’s paintings transport you somewhere else: another city, another country, and often another time altogether. Nostalgia pervades Perez’s oil-stick paintings, but his work is contemporary in only the way that vibrant hues and unusual color combinations can feel. With his buildings, it’s not always clear if you’re gazing at something from the 1920s, the 1950s or the 21st century, but there’s an optimism that beams through – perhaps the utopian ambitions that fueled the real-life versions (when they exist) in the first place. Perez’s still-lifes and nudes are vibrant and sleek; there’s a subtle confidence to his subjects. His work can be found in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, as well as the British Museum in London and the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami.
