Benjamín Domínguez: New Works

Essay by John Phillip Santos
2012

Benjamín Domínguez’s approach to his subject matter covers a wide gamut of techniques: the bold use of color and simplicity in art, the classical preoccupation with detail, and re-interpretation of the Flemish school of art. He creates a fascinating and startling concoction of lavish gold repoussé and luxurious fabrics, contrasting classic renaissance themes with our current world of tattoos, motorcycles, myth, and magic. “The Baroque, allows me to get inside the human psyche and examine the good and evil that one finds there.” – Benjamín Domínguez
