Engel Leonardo

Working with various mediums, from sculpture to installation, site-specific interventions, and readymades, Leonardo Engel addresses issues related to the climate, nature, traditional crafts, architecture, and popular culture of the Caribbean. His works show a particular investment in objects—their gestures, and their creation and production processes—as well as to the psychological and sociological discourses implicit within them. Engel carries out continual processes of research and observation of his environment. From the city of Santo Domingo, where he lives and works, to the peripheral urban centers and remote rural communities of the island, which he has visited on multiple occasions, his artistic production and daily experience are closely linked.
