ART AS DOOR. DOORS EXHIBITION AT TRANSFORMATION GALLERY.

It is an honor for me to be part of the "Doors" exhibition presented by the Transformation Gallery in New Jersey that aims to reflect on the meaning of the door as an object and how we communicate with our peers.



Three doors were given to three artists to show their vision and meaning.

"My purpose with this project is to reflect between the private and the public, between the personal and the foreign.

The door is a more current symbol than ever and for me it means the amount of interaction we want to have with others and it is applicable from immigration to our most private and personal space.

Whenever there is a door there is the possibility that it can be opened, it is a gap that connects one side with another but does not acquire meaning and functionality until it is opened. A closed door is still a wall.

I am also interested in talking about art as a door and the artist as the person who opens and intends to dialogue with each observer".



The event will take place on October 21 from 1-5 pm at the Transformation Gallery in Metuchen, New Jersey where will be unveiling these murals-sculptures at the same time as an exhibition that includes many artists more.

The doors will continue on display outside permanently.

Artist Enrique Zaldivar exhibits his paintings in Trenton New Jersey

“Happy days” comes from my personal experience with nature, color and shapes over the last four years. 
I know that these arguments sound very topical and simplistic, and in fact they are. 
Through time I have stripped myself of theoretical ties, seeking a more primal feeling. 
 
I can go from figuration to abstraction and you can also see impressionism, pop art, etc.
Anything can arouse interest, influence my work and be a source of inspiration.
Maybe you will find pure colors, random and conscious brush stroke , rhythm, spontaneity, nature,
common objects, that's what my work is about.
 
Every day I enjoy art more, I do not have too many pretensions, just to be more pure and sincere. 
It is said that the human being seeks pleasure and avoids pain. 
Particularly I find a great realization in the fact of artistic creation, no matter what my feelings are. 
 
I am one of those who believes that art does not change the world, but does make changes to ourselves.
