Oracle Towne Crier

Juan Enriquez is a Tucson artist that once called Mammoth, Ariz. home. He is a graduate of San Manuel High School and the University of Arizona. Juan is one of the founders of the Raices Taller 222 Gallery in downtown Tucson. His one man show titled Pulso Visible/A Visible Pulse opened Sunday, March 2 at the Rancho Linda Vista Gallery in Oracle. Like many artists from the area Juan has been influenced by the artists of Rancho Linda Vista counting Jim and Mary Anne Davis among his mentors.

Juan says he named the show and one of his paintings Pulso Visible after experiencing seeing a visible pulse of his son in his wife’s womb on the sonogram video – micro sound monitor. His son Santiago turned one year old this month. A child of the border, conceived in Mexico and born in the United States, Juan’s paintings reflect his culture and heritage. The bold earth tones of the painting “Tamaliando” were inspired by images of his mother preparing food for the family. Some of his other works at the show were political in nature and thought provoking. One of his works “The Brewer Bunch” was a take off on an image from the Brady Bunch television series only not as friendly. Slightly altered images of Governor Brewer, Russell Pearce, Tom Horne and others involved in Senate Bill 1070 and other anti-Mexican/immigrant actions and legislation paint a not so pretty picture of the hate mongers in Arizona. This painting and others involving Pulso Visible/A Visible Pulse will be at the Rancho Linda Vista Gallery through March. The gallery is located at 1955 W. Linda Vista Rd. and is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
