Enrique Brinkmann Biography

Since the end of the last century, Enrique Brinkmann's paintings have always been concerned with a declared or suggested geometrical structure; an unequivocal sense of order allied to a rationalisation of space, which is then disrupted with his supremely painterly or graphic interventions. Brinkmann's artistic longevity enables him to stand as a symbol of so much of the history of Spain since the 60s and beyond. His highly dramatic works, which he made whilst Franco was alive, gave way to a new-found freedom on the dictator's death. His gradual abandonment of the figure in favour of abstraction led to a fascination with Japanese minimalism and ultimately to an interest in ancient artifacts containing the earliest testimonies of written language.
