Enoc Perez is a critically acclaimed artist, best known for paintings of modernist buildings which he began creating during the 1990s. These compositions employ a technique that recalls printmaking traditions—in which preparatory drawings, based on both original photographs and popular reproductions, are applied with oil sticks and pressed onto canvas surfaces. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and based in New York, NY, Perez has presented solo exhibitions at venues that include Dallas Contemporary, Dallas, TX; UTA Artist Space, Los Angeles, CA; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, FL. Additionally, his work can be found in the esteemed collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; the British Museum, London, United Kingdom; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR; and the Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; among others. 

Dorado Beach Pool stems from a recent body of work inspired by the paradisiacal settings of the Caribbeans—and, more specifically, the ways that they have been marketed through resort brochures and travel catalogs. Amassed over time, these promotional images become visual fodder for the artist, who mines the ways in which the locale has been sold as a fantasy to both foreigners and locals alike. Perez’s work centers on Dorado, a town in northern Puerto Rico populated by luxurious hotels and mansions. Detailed by shadowy lines that insinuate the soft movement caused by a tropical breeze, the image centers on a swimming pool surrounded by umbrellas that provide shade to a presumed, though unseen, elite. In this way, the image offers a critique on capitalist exploitations of the island territory, while simultaneously celebrating its beauty.
