 Roberto Juarez: They Entered the Road
 December 10, 2004–February 27 , 2005
  back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

The five immense paintings that comprise They Entered the Road are spectacles of wonder, enchantment, and the peace we may derive from the natural world. As elegies to the dead, they honor the memories of five intimates of Juarez who have died: his sister, her daughter, and three close friends who died of AIDS. Through these paintings, Juarez creates sites of ethereal grace where nature’s abundance—flowers, fruits, and natural materials—may encourage us to reflect on our passage through the physical world into another. This suite of paintings is part of the Kemper Museum’s permanent collection. Roberto Juarez was a visiting artist.
