The Jack Tilton Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition presenting new works by Eduardo Abaroa. This will be Aboara's first solo exhibition at the Jack Tilton Gallery. His work was first seen in "Invisible Chase," a group exhibition at Jack Tilton Gallery of Mexian artists in July 1998.

Eduardo Abaroa is a young artist from Mexico City. Influenced by television and consumerism, combined with childhood and adolescence experience. Abaroa creates adult toys, bvending machines with prizes, epoxy figures and plants. These brightly colored, shiny plastic installations may appear at first to evoke an infantile like sweetness, but no further investigation reveal a melancholy and almost perverse quality. This combination of pop art esthetics, childhood naivete and moral anguish form bitter sweet, post modern realization of end of the century culture in Latin America.

As an artist and writer, Eduardo Abaroa has been a prominent figure in the emerging Mexican art scene of the 90's. The new generation of artists changed the face of the LAtin American art community by founding and running spaces like Temistocles 44 and the Panadería, exhibiting their work and the work of their peers, Daniela Rossel, MArco Acre, Miguel Calderon and Daniel Guzman.
