"Enrique Rico is an artist who throws himself and his rich imagination passionately into his work. These works constitute finished linguistic expressions and significant structures that speak a plastic and contemporary language full of sensations. His sculpto-picturial experiences are handsomely realized, his hybrid constructions are at once painting and relief sculpture. Enrique Rico has learned to conjugate the plastic language with imagination and above all to manipulate the various expressive materials with an admirably clean technique. His work is completely nonfigurative, nor does it contain recognizable symbols from past epochs. His work is constituted by purely subjective form - concretions of a state of being - unconscious impulses - revelations of a young and restless inner life." - Jose Luis Meza Inda / Art Critic / El Informador, Guadalajara, Mexico
This wonderful work depicts two biomorphic forms with different finishes on a black ground with a space between them to allow the forms to be seen in relief. The abstracted work is wonderfully imaginative.

Condition: The work is in good form however the metallic frame is broken with two edges needing to be re fastened to the work. The work could also be re framed but the pieces are with the work and with some restoration could be re fitted and hung with a magnificent presentation.
