Machado's works are an act of energy, irony, and rythm. Together they form a balanced state of peace and serenity to the viewer. His use of silicone gives the illusion of waves comming towards the spectator. There is a feeling of chaos vs. structure, destruction vs. construction, movement vs. stillness. In machado's work, life is affirming in its resonance with spiritural preservation and renewal. His materials and subjects become part of a reconciliation story. Machado's vision is made up of opposites that collapse under the scrutiny of the ocean's macro world view and microscopic vision.

Archetypes on the dream of elements

 

Art is a creative experience that merges the alchemy of science and the metaphoric journey of art. One of the Jungian archetypes in mythology is the artist-scientist, a unique process of abstraction of the human mind. Within that experimental approach is the work of Enrique Machado, an emerging contemporary artist that has placed his work imaginary in the coordinates of Miami. A global city with an archipelago of nationalities and cultures that become a unique urban setting for the evident and unavoidable intensity of global relations and cultural exchanges of a broad geographical scale.

Arquetipos en el sueño de los elementos

 

El arte es una experiencia creativa que fusiona la alquimia de la ciencia y la travesía metafórica del arte. Uno de los arquetipos de Jung en la mitología es el artista-científico, un proceso único de exploración a partir de la mente humana. Dentro de este enfoque experimental se ubica la obra de Enrique Machado, un artista contemporáneo emergente, que coloca su obra imaginaria entre las coordenadas de Miami. Una ciudad global constituida por un archipiélago de nacionalidades y culturas que la convierten en un entorno urbano único que evidencia con intensidad y de manera inevitable las relaciones globales propias de una ciudad transnacional y sus intercambios culturales con sus realidades locales de una amplia gama geográfica.

"Enrique Machado is a rare talent who adroitly combines his chosen media and subject matter to create arresting works that exist in the realm between painting and sculpture."
