At Your Mercy
ARTIST Juan Travieso
SIZE 30" x 30"
MEDIUM Acrylic on wood panel
Travieso presents the reality of a world in transition.
Combining a realist painting technique with surreal juxtapositions, spatial splicing, bright palettes, and geometric abstraction, Travieso conveys the textures of a universe in breach, distorted and split by its endless potential for loss. Fascinated by the extinction of countless endangered species and the often irrevocable influence of human intervention.
His compositions often look like digitized renderings, informed by the awkward, artificial simultaneity of 3-D models, and devolve in moments to pixelated digital facsimiles, reminding us of the unavoidably temporal nature of disappearance.

Meet the Artist
Juan Travieso (born Havana, Cuba 1987), is an artist based in Miami and New York. His work explores notions of impermanence and decay through a combined language of pop, realism, and abstraction. Figures, be them humans or animals, are broken up into spaces and forms much like 3d models, speaking to both their temporality and transition into the digital age. Travieso transposes his work on endangered animal species with works relating to his own childhood and experiences growing up in Cuba.
