"Tell Me Where It Hurts"

Much like the markings of a tattoo artist, Richard Armendariz’s carved paintings symbolize both pain and beauty. With surgical precision, Armendariz applies an adapted power tool onto his brilliantly painted wooden panels, bringing to light a plethora of mythological creatures, figures and text by way of crosshatched incisions. This month, Ruiz-Healy Art presents “Tell Me Where It Hurts,” a new exhibition comprising the artist’s signature carved paintings and large-scale woodblock prints. The title of the show is inspired by the common phrase heard at the doctor’s office and refers to both a physical and mental state. “It’s about the body but it’s also about the mind and the psychological state that a person is in,” Armendariz explains. “Also, as a Latino, it revolves around the idea that we don’t always ask for help … we don’t go to the doctor or therapist. It’s funny to tell someone that you’re in therapy if you’re a Latino because it goes against this macho attitude.”
