APPLE IN MY HEAD

The first New York solo exhibition by Cuban artist Jorge Rodríguez Diez (R10), Apple In My Head was a pop-up exhibit on display in the Lazy Susan Gallery at 191 Henry Street which ran from November 3rd - November 14th, 2018.

Press Release:

R10 creates decodable poster-like paintings using 50’s era nostalgic imagery, text and a thoughtfully considered color palette to conjure atmospheres of lost decades of Cuban culture. Puzzling you is the nature of R10’s game. As a trained Graphic Designer, he begins with a clear idea, concisely communicated yet purposefully ambiguous; at times satirical, at times sincere, he uses layers of meaning so the viewer can choose what they are seeing and what the images reveal. Apple in My Head’s images mix memories of the past with current anxieties and hopes for the future in a shadow of uncertainty.

 

Works by Jorge Rodríguez Diez (R10) b.1969, have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Spain, China, Germany and South Korea including a solo show at Icheri Secher Modern Art Center in Azerbaijan and most recently at the Marta Hewitt Gallery in Cincinnati, OH. R10 studied at the Technical Institute of Industrial Design and the Superior Institute of Design in Havana.
