In an immediate wake of the historic renewal of U.S. - Cuba relations, Jenn Singer Gallery proudly presents Little Robot [Future Loading] , a collection of new paintings by 28-year-old Miami based, Cuban artist Juan Travieso.
Little Robot, 2015
In the vanguard of Cuban artists injecting the richness of their art and culture into the American mainstream, Juan Travieso has exhibited in four museum shows, designed a clothing collection for West Coast brand Etnies and garnered a following of top-tier art collectors. In his first solo exhibition in New York City, Travieso deftly uses his passion for color as a prolific language to jolt us into facing one possible path of our shared uncertain future: a world so distracted by technology that humans have mindlessly pushed virtually all animals into eternal extinction, forever changing our earth.
Little Robot [Future Loading] revolves around a painting of a young boy, The Little Robot and highlights the impermanence and decay of nature – specifically modern endangered species – and the adverse affects humans have had on it. To visually capture the fragility of these endangered animals, Travieso combines pop, realism and abstraction, leaving his figures broken-up into spaces and forms like 3D models, almost as if “The Little Robot” - a futuristic representation of an innocent and hopeful child - is looking at dioramas of species long lost.

“One of my cultural finds this summer is the Jenn Singer Gallery, a boutique bijoux of a small space, masterminded by the petite gallery owner Jenn Singer. The gallery may be modest but it offers art on a grand scale...”
