Steve Turner is pleased to announce the gallery’s participation at the 2018 edition of Zona Maco, Mexico City with a solo booth by Los Angeles-based Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio.

Aparicio is a first-generation American of Salvadoran descent whose work focuses on the Salvadoran diaspora, migration, and the interrelated histories of Central and North America. He uses rubber, an important natural resource from El Salvador (and Mexico), to create paintings that encapsulate natural and man-made images embedded within the surface of urban trees in Los Angeles and Mexico City. Using rubber to make “lifemasks” of the surfaces of urban trees, Aparicio retains the painted and carved graffiti, dirt and natural decay into the surfaces of these molded works, which also incorporate decades of urban history. The works are beautiful as paintings but they also represent a complicated history that relates to the Spanish conquest as well as to the complex relationships between Central America, Mexico and the United States.

Aparicio earned a BA from Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York (2012); an MFA from Yale University, New Haven (2016) and attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2016). His work is currently on view at Steve Turner in The Dog, the Tree and the Catfish. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
