Retroband “I can't stop the Monster I created” Solo Exhibition at Bottleneck Gallery

Retroband “I can't stop the Monster I created” Solo Exhibition at Bottleneck Gallery

The Blot was super excited to learn that artist Aaron “Retroband” Moreno’s first ever solo gallery exhibition – “I can't stop the Monster I created” – will be taking place on Saturday, September 21st, at Bottleneck Gallery! Known for projecting ‘70s and ‘80s horror film-fueled fantasies onto his vinyl-cast MEATS sculpture, Moreno's showcase will focus on renditions of this disquieting form.

Manifesting through an impressive array of hand-painted/modified MEATS pieces, as well as an unprecedented selection of “raw” unpainted versions, “I can’t stop the Monster I created” will introduce the award-winning artist’s newest interpretation of his monstrous character, one inspired by Japan’s Ma-Ba Zombie toy line.

Also debuting at the exhibition is a 154-page retrospective titled “MEATS by Retroband”, an art book from CoART Publications. Comprised mainly of specially-commissioned photographs by Bryan Sargent, this full-color monograph details every hand-painted/modified MEATS rendition by Moreno from the form’s 2015 introduction until mid-2018. How cool is that!?!

With all available works sold on a first-come, first-served basis (initial limit of one piece and one book per person), Moreno’s “I can't stop the Monster I created” is a free-to-the-pubic exhibition hosted at the Bottleneck Gallery contemporary art space — 60 Broadway in Brooklyn, NY — on Saturday, September 21st, 2019 from 6-9pm.
