Luis Cruz Azaceta - Where is Superman When You Need Him

Luis Cruz Azaceta

The remarkable range of works in “Happy-Deadly in New Orleans” include colorful patterned abstract works that contrast with their simple one and two-word titles such as Threat and Intruder, suggesting more somber associations. Also included are chromogenic prints on wood that transform reality into abstraction as well as expressive figurative paintings. Works related to the tragedy of 9/11 continue Azaceta’s ongoing concern with issues of terrorism.
