The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Federico A. Ruiz: Land, Sea & Sky: A Minimalist’s Caribbean. Federico A. Ruiz, a D.C. first responder and former military, gives a fresh perspective on the Caribbean landscape. As a descendant of Dominican immigrants, Ruiz is inspired by the Dominican Republic coast that was near his family’s estate. This body of work hints at his impression of the convergence of land, sea and sky. Relying on color, little to no texture and geometric shapes, Ruiz is able to convey distinct horizons and nature’s essence. These minimalist paintings find the visual abstract elements of the Dominican Republic’s Caribbean landscape.
