Roberto Juarez

b. 1952 in Chicago, Illinois; lives in Canaan, New York

Painter/printmaker Roberto Juarez has collaborated with Tamarind many times. His work is rooted in drawing, botanical imagery, and a tactile way of layering paper and organic matter. On his first collaboration with the workshop he challenged the team of printers to incorporate the rich red dirt collected from the nearby Jemez Mountains into the lithograph. On subsequent projects with the workshop his work followed similar inquiries, drawing from botanical subjects and imbuing the material with great personal meaning.

Juarez is represented in numerous museum collections including Brooklyn Museum of Art; Denver Art Museum; El Museo del Barrio, New York; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art & Design, Kansas City; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Miami Art Museum of Dade County, Miami; Neuberger Museum of Art, SUNY, Purchase, New York; The Newark Museum; Saint Louis Museum of Art, and the UBS Collection, among others.
