Gallery On Greene Artist - Abel Barroso

The Gallery On Greene's artist, Abel Barroso, is the featured artist for this months ART & ANTIQUES Magazine.  Currently housed in the Whitney and MOMA Museums, Abel was formally trained in Havana Cuba in printmaking and sculpture, with themes pertaining to both materialism and wealth; a biting look at contemporary Cuban life.  Using meticulous craftsmenship, he creates works that often invite the viewer to participate.  A hand crank simulating modern mechanisation, leading the audience to ... El Dorado (The Promised Land).  Though shown and collected internationally, Abel is teethered to his Cuban homeland.  How will he get to see the magazine that he is featured on?  Well, Nance Frank, gallery owner, is taking him copies on Friday due to a pre-planned art trip.    Stay tuned for updates ! ! !
