ERNESTO BRIEL AT S2 GALLERY LONDON
...In 1989, Briel received the Cintas Foundation Fellowship Award and continued to exhibit in a series of solo and group shows in New York. These exhibits included the now historically relevant Duo Geo exhibit in 1992 at Jadite Galleries in New York City, which featured works by Carmen Herrera and Briel side by side. Sadly, the following year, Briel died of AIDS-related complications, but the artist's legacy lives on through his commitment to his artistic practice, especially the international language of Op Art, as a means of transcending cultural boundaries.
