Employing a signature blend of landscape painting, woodcutting, text and Spanish/English code-switching, El Paso native Ricky Armendariz conjures ominous scenes while nodding to everything from Bob Dylan song lyrics and Greek mythology to Native American icons and the U.S./Mexico border. Fittingly, Armendariz likens the intricate cuts he makes in his painted panels to scars and tattoos. Referencing with its title Francisco Goya’s grisly painting Saturn Devouring His Son, Armendariz’s “In the Belly of the Beast” comprises works in his hybrid style as well as a series of wood blockprints.
