Enrique Brinkmann (b.1938, Malaga) lives and works between Malaga and Madrid.

Brinkmann has participated in several international biennals from Sao Paulo, Brazil to Beijing, China with group exhibitions in public collections such as; Museum of Modern Art, Johannesburg, South Africa; Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, USA.

Enrique Brinkmann composes a visual tapestry within his abstract paintings which break into the realm of sculpture; constructing his compositions on a fine wire mesh held a few inches proud from the wall, he plays with the space between the physical painterly surface and its support. As one meditates upon the play of shadows on the wall behind, the works levitate between both their weightlessness and the density of highly worked areas of the mesh, at times pushing paint from the back, and at others painting on the front. He has continually worked within a dialogue between gesture and emptiness, noise and silence, all the while exploring his chosen surface.
