 Past Exhibition

Roberto Juarez: They Entered the Road
August 10, 1997–February 1, 1998
 back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

Each of these five lush, elegiac, monumentally sized paintings is in memorium to a person Roberto Juarez loved who has recently died: his niece; her mother, the artist's sister; and three close artist friends, all of whom died of AIDS. The garden-like paintings, composed of rice paper, peat moss, charcoal, and paint on canvas, are visionary expressions of a peaceful garden. The works allow the viewer to visually and emotionally enter into a peaceful and ethereal journey. The paintings were on view to coincide with the group exhibition Out of Eden, which focused on the garden site. The suite of paintings are part of the Kemper Museum's permanent collection.
