This work by 1971 shows a self-portrait in large format, executed on a dense matter where ocher predominates. The short, strong and nervous strokes, silhouetted the figure and highlight the face. In this self-portrait Henríquez showed himself as a character far from his space, which suggests a feeling of contained emotion.
About the Author:
Daniel Henríquez was an artist from Puerto Plata who developed a pictorial work that was debated between abstraction and simple figuration. During the sixties, the social upheavals, the civil war, and, later, the transition from dictatorship to democracy, where he produces works where society and the individual are evaluated, stood out.
