Eduardo Rincón’s work is based on biological, natural and organic processes that present a reflection on the natural forces that manifest in the form and development of plants. He produces plants experimentally at his workshop and nursery that he later uses for installation purposes, sculpture, drawing and painting. He has taken his research on native trees to reforestation projects.
This artist’s work may be considered as object painting since his work includes objects produced by nature: flowers, seeds and plants that he adds to his pictorial techniques as a real element that opposes to the illusion of image.
Art-Object rises simple, every day objects to the dignity of art as proof that art is, first and foremost, a mental attitude that lives in the mind of the viewer. By exhibiting these paintings/objects, aesthetic qualities may be appreciated instead of their practical purposes. His work makes us accomplices to a flirtation between two and three-dimensional art, technique and expression, and most importantly, between nature and culture.
He holds a degree in Biology from the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (1991). Standing out among his solo exhibitions are Tulpa in Artana Gallery, The Hague, Netherlands (2011), Terra Viridis at White Box Gallery. Mexico City (2010) and Musa Paradisiaca at Casa Lamm Mexico City (2006). He has participated in a collective exhibition at the Glyndor Gallery in New York (2001) and other places around Mexico. He has received several fellowships from the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (1997, 2000 and 2002) and was winner at the National Encounter of Young Art 1992. He has worked as a resident artist at the Boreal Art / Nature center in Quebec, Canada. He is founder of the Amate arte/natura group which develops art projects in natural reserves.
