Carlos Cruz Diez: The Embodied Experience of Color
Curated by MAM Adjunct Curator Rina CarvajalThis exhibition marks the artist's first exhibition to focus solely on sensory chromatic environments and interactive projects. It presents four, interactive environments that challenge visitors’ perceptions as they experience shifting chromatic space and color in movement.

Internationally known as a leading practitioner of kinetic art in the 1950s, Carlos Cruz-Diez began experimenting with color, perception and sensation during the 1960s and 1970s. His pioneering work from those decades proposed a dematerialization of the art object in favor of immersive environments incorporating the viewer's body, senses and subjectivity, and changing the audience from passive spectators into active participants.

Mira que lindas!
A visual journey through the design of record covers in Latin America.This show, created and coordinated by Zona de Obras, the company responsible for many of the album covers by masterAndrés Calamaro, as well as a long list of Latin American recording artists, is a tribute to the record itself and to the condition of being listened to, observed and felt. The show proposes a visual journey throughout Latin American graphic design exploring the covers of 519 historic contemporary rock albums. It’s a visual adventure far away from charts and ranks. Music to contemplate, full of colors and suggestive surprises that prove that graphic design is in great health in that region.

Visual music composed by many generations of designers, photographers and illustrators that are key players on the“Rock in Spanish” concert. May 22 to June 12 at the Awarehouse, 550 NW 29th Street, Miami, FL 33127.

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master Sculptor

The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.We invite you to visit our gallery to see an important collection of the works of Carbonell ranging from maquettes to monumentals and the paintings and sculptures of Mauro Arbiza.

Emma Pineiro: Terra Firma
Daniela Montana, Curator
In Terra Firme, serene horizontal bands intercepted by abrupt dips and dubious perches find themselves in a progressively fragmented landscape, as Pineiro’s representational abstraction raises salient questions pertaining to the national ethos, a collective memory and the sacred mysticism of the Pampas. Terra Firma’s intimist topographies --layered in rich colors, applied freely to create contrasting patterns, depth and perspective-- have an inspired allure. Pineiro reveals a broken peace at the core of our existence --an ecological shift..Pineiro -- whose work reflects the influence of Masters with whom she studied including Eugenio Daneri, Krishna Reddy, Bob Blackburn, Tony Smith and William S Hayter – has been exhibited and collected by cultural institutions worldwide.

BROADSWORD
Carnival Studio Theatre
(Inside the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House)"BroadSword is must-see theater!" -The Miami Herald

Sixteen years ago, the Jersey band BroadSword broke up. Now their lead guitarist has gone missing. What the hell happened to Richie and who's the strange man with the disturbing news? BroadSword is all about myths, music, fantasy—and heavy metal deals with the devil!

Get ready for the reunion of the year, featuring some of Mad Cat Theatre's hottest actors, including actor and director Paul Tei (Barry on TV's "Burn Notice"), Erik Fabregat, Todd Allen Durkin, Gregg Weiner, Sofia Citarella and Ken Clement.

Written by Marco Ramírez (of TV's "Sons of Anarchy") and nominated for 5 Carbonell Awards, BroadSword is "insightful, beautifully modulated writing coupled with great acting and design!" The Miami Herald

Until August 29
Volf Roitman: From MADI to The Ludic RevolutionThis is a series of major works celebrating the 60-year-long career of Uruguayan painter, sculptor, architect, novelist, playwright, filmmaker, and humorist Volf Roitman. Samples of Roitman's work from the '50s to the present will be on view, including a splendid array of motorized, kinetic works of a humorous style. The exhibition will celebrate the Ludic, or playfulness and whimsical, which is the basis of his creations. His newest innovations include giant MADI banners and MADI lightboxes. Some say the letters MADI stand for Movimiento Artistico De Invencion or MAterialismo DIalectismo (Dialectical Materialism). The movement integrates complexity with playfulness by focusing on geometric shapes that spill out of the traditional frame, and articulated mobile structures. This exhibition is sponsored in part by Citizens Interested in Arts, Inc.Paul Strand in Mexico
These photographs provide a visual record of Paul Strand's journey through Mexico from 1932-34 and his brief return visit in 1966. Today recognized as one of the great photographers of the twentieth century, Strand believed firmly in the power of art and social documentary. Tap-Tap: Celebrating the Art of Haiti This exhibition is part of a larger project to contribute works lost in the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti and assist in the rebuilding of the island's cultural and artistic heritage.

"Surrounded Islands"
Slides presentation by Joe Fleming.
Informal dialog with Margarita Cano, Paula Harper, Helen Kohen, Ruth Shack. Moderated by Barbara Young.BAC Art Canvas, a new series of quarterly panels offered by the Bakehouse Art Complex. Open to the community, members and non-members alike, will discuss Christo & Jeanne-Claudeand their project “Surrounded Islands” from 1980-1983.

BAC Art Canvas is a quarterly panel discussion covering contemporary art in Miami. “Surrounded Islands” was a temporary art event, but what transpired during the preparation of the project and what its gorgeous unveiling on Biscayne Bay meant to Miami still reverberates today. The dressing of 11 spoil islands in pink plastic was the catalyst that turned a culturally sleepy town into a vital city, home to art and artists. The panelists, participants and monitors of “Surrounded Islands”, will share their memories of the roles played by individual citizens and special interest groups during those contentious days leading to the “live” exhibition portion of their uncommon, common efforts.

Poetry Reading by Ricardo Pau-LlosaRicardo Pau-Llosa, a major figure on the South Florida literary and visual arts scene, has been publishing poetry and art criticism for 36 years.  His original model of art criticism has helped shape our view of modern Latin American painting and sculpture. The reading will be in English. A reception will be held afterwards for Ricardo Pau-Llosa and Humberto Castro.

His ideas about what sets Latin American art apart from other modernist traditions, together with his poetry and prodigious art collecting, is the focus of a monumental tribute at the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame this fall.  Among the artists Pau-Llosa has published important essays on are Olga de Amaral, Fernando de Szyszlo, Rogelio Polesello, Jesús Soto, Hugo Consuegra, and Humberto Castro, whose work is on exhibition at Virginia Miller Galleries.

Spiritual Healing – Shamans of the Northwest Coast
For countless centuries indigenous peoples have lived along the Northwest Coast of the North American continent, thriving in a rich natural environment.  They believe that all nature is endowed with spirits. Illness is believed to come from the supernatural realm of these spirits. The shaman is the ritual healer who draws directly upon his helper spirits to drive away illness using a wide variety of objects.  Thus, healing is a religious event.After History
Jacek J. Kolasinski
FIU Art + Art History Department Faculty Exhibition
Silhouettes of toy like planes and zeppelins anxiously hover over the ghostly balsa ruins of an industrial metropolis shrouded by a sense of nostalgia for an irrevocably lost fantasy is the central stage of Kolasinski's multimedia installation entitled After History.

DEMONS nurture/nature
Kathy Dambach
FIU Art + Art History Department Faculty Exhibition
The exhibition, Demons, references Dostoyevsky's novel of the same name in the context of classical ceramics.

This large and bountiful installation of more than fifty works in various media illustrates the commitment by the Museum to add to its contemporary holdings art that reflects the character and heritage of Broward County’s growing Hispanic community.Latin American Art from the Collection of Pearl and Stanley Goodman
Within the part thirty years, the art of Latin America has become a respected and recognized category of modern and contemporary art history, perhaps best known in the United States for the Mexican murals of Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orózco, the chubby figures of Fernando Botero, and the haunting self-portraits of Frida Kahlo.
Ongoing
Pablo Picasso Ceramics / Carlos Luna Paintings
This installation is a ‘conversation’ between one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), and a talented young artist from Cuba, Carlos Luna (born 1969).  Both artists had to leave their native countries in order to develop as artists; Picasso left Spain for France in the beginning of the 20th century; Luna left Cuba for Mexico at the end of that same century.  The two artists share a common heritage in the art of Spain, a passion for art-making, and although they live/d on different continents at different times, they share in the expression of common, universal themes.

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master SculptorAn important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master SculptorManuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.

Beaux Arts is pleased to announce we are now representing highly acclaimed Argentinean Master Marco Otero, a painter, sculptor and architect. His work is a derivative of the New York School of Expressionist which took place in the 1960’s. An important collection of his paintings are now on exhibit at the gallery, as well as paintings and sculptures by Mauro Arbiza.

Miami-based artist, MANO explores the aspects of adapting to a new culture in his newest collection; ID: Self Identification. The need to fit into an adopted country can be bittersweet and often results in the hybridization of cultural identity.MANOS’s eye-catching and thought provoking works reference passport ID photos and incorporate elements of collage both as technique and metaphor. “I’ve always been fascinated with the cultural patchwork of the United States” said MANO, “My interest is rooted in my own immigrant experience through Operation Pedro Pan. By way of this collection, I wanted to create a conversation that would focus on the many similarities of our own or that of our family’s experience”.

Lecture : Yves Klein le philosophe by Klaus Ottmann
Date & Time: Wednesday, October 6, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Whale & Star.
Lecture Fee: $ 5.Ottmann will attempt to describe the intellectual milieu of one of the most influential artists of our time: Yves Klein. Klein was an agitator of ideas, who used his considerable charisma to propagate social change through art. Like most artists, Klein was a “conceptual personality.” When he theorized about his artistic practice, he did so by speculating out of a general milieu that included philosophical, scientific, and political ideas. With his writings and public talks, as with his art, Klein intended to promote his vision of a future of absolute artistic and social freedom and his belief in “le grand Art absolu et total,” the great, absolute, and total Art.

Klaus Ottmann is currently the Robert Lehman Curator for The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York and as of October 1 he will be the Curator-at-Large and Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC.

Several large-scale finished drawings and preparatory works for the Great American Nude as well as for a second series, Bedroom Paintings, are featured in the exhibition. Most of the drawings in the show have never been seen outside the artist’s studio before now.

A Cincinnati native who came to New York in 1956 to attend art classes at Cooper Union, Tom Wesselmann was one of the originators of Pop Art. Along with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist and Jim Dine, Wesselmann created a body of works that helped define the visual identity of America in the 1960s.

In time, Pop Art became one of the best known movements in the history of art.

Ways of Worldmaking: Notes on a Passion for Collecting
Collection of Dr. Arturo and Liza Mosquera
Co-Curated by Cristina & Vivian Nosti a.k.a. Duo NostiGustavo Acosta, Mario Algaze, Luisa Basnuevo, Maria Brito, Adriano Buergo, Pablo Cano, Consuelo Castañeda, Arturo Cuenca, Liliam Cuenca, Ana Albertina Delgado, Christian Durán, Silvia Lizama, Rubén Torres Llorca, Rogelio López Marín (Gory), Beatriz Monteavaro, Heriberto Mora, Gean Moreno, Glexis Novoa, Jorge Pantoja, Lidia Rubio, Baruj Salinas, George Sánchez-Calderón, César Trasobares, Pedro Vizcaino and Ramón Williams, among others.

The South Florida-based couple has been collecting contemporary art for over 20 years and their collection presently includes over a thousand works. For this exhibition, co-curators Cristina Nosti and Vivian Nosti, (a sister team that for the purposes of their artistic collaborations are known as Duo Nosti) have selected over 85 original works by more than 70 contemporary Cuban and Cuban-American artists, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, and photographs.

In 2000, the couple began showing artwork from their collection at Dr. Mosquera’s orthodontic office in the Westchester neighborhood of Miami-Dade County. They established a quarterly program of exhibits, “Art @ Work”, in the lobby of the office and created a print newsletter that served as a mini-catalog of each show. The word began to spread so they later opened Farside Gallery, a non-commercial, alternative art space, adjacent to Mosquera’s orthodontic practice, to showcase more art.

Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot
The glory and cruelty of ancient China, some of opera's most famous music, and the thrill of heroic voices create the theatrical experience that every opera lover dreams of. Puccini had an unmistakable melodic gift that enriched some of the world's most beloved operas, and Turandot, his final opera, represents the culmination of the Italian tradition of Grand Opera.

This production's Turandot, Lise Lindstrom, and Calaf, Frank Porretta, thrilled Metropolitan Opera audiences this past season, and local favorite Elizabeth Caballero returns to sing Liù. The conductor of FGO's recent Lucia di Lammermoor, Ramon Tebar, returns to lead this outstanding cast.

Carbonell’s sculptures and Marco Otero’s paintings at Beaux Arts Gallery

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master SculptorAn important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master SculptorManuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.

We invite you to visit our gallery to see an important collection of the works of Carbonell ranging from maquettes to monumentals, the paintings of Marco Otero and the paintings and sculptures of Mauro Arbiza.

Beaux Arts is pleased to announce we are now representing highly acclaimed Argentinean Master Marco Otero, a painter, sculptor and architect. His work is a derivative of the New York School of Expressionist which took place in the 1960’s. An important collection of his paintings are now on exhibit at the gallery.

Carlos Betancourt. Solo Exhibition.
Lapidus Infinitus
In Betancourt’s most recent photographic artwork, the artist continues to assemble explosive compositions consisting of thousands of photographs of objects, people, flowers and other elements that occupy the superb glitzy realm of beauty for which he is known. The images appear in their full kitsch splendor, possessed by an enchanting light and seemingly crystallized by a magical sorcererIn addition, there is a sprawling three-dimensional installation of multiple column pedestals, each supporting an accumulation of auspicious objects to be worshipped. A symmetrical assembly creates spaces for interaction within this fantastical world. As with the photographic compositions, this large-scale installation, Portrait of a Garden, iconizes these pop objects the artist has gifted with a unique sense of dignity.

A group exhibition brings together gallery and guest artists including Luis Alonzo Barkigia, John Bailly, Clifton Childree, Irene Clouthier, Felice Grodin, Jill Hotchkiss, Laura Kina, Alberto Latorre, Michael Loveland, Michael Scoggins, Carlos de Villasante, and Annie Wharton. Each artist is working with the same initial element, a world globe, and transforming it, thereby providing their own vision.

Curated by Eva Grinstein
Fabián Burgs, Martín Di Paola, Marcolina Dipierro, Verónica Di oToro, Lucio Dorr, Silvia Gurfein, Silvana Lacarra, Adriana Minoliti, Karina Peisajovich, Pablo Siquier and Andrés Sobrino.
Latin American Abstract Geometric painting, with its strong ties to Europe yet with its undeniably great, regional protagonists, has left an enormous legacy to the contemporary art scene of the continent.In this opportunity, Alejandra von Hartz Gallery has invited the curator, Eva Grinstein, to present a carefully selected group of artists, who inherited and continued this rich tradition in Argentine art. They “reinterpret and---in a way--- render homage to the masters of the vanguard, who changed the direction of Latin American art in the mid 20th century.”

Grinstein notes: “This selection presents the work of eleven accomplished Argentine artists of the new generation, who through the use of very diverse materials and techniques---painting, reliefs, light pieces, and drawings---reignites and updates the passion for structure that characterized the artists that challenged the paradigms of representation.”

Carlos Irijalba, Twilight, 1
20 x 120 cm

Carlos Irijalba. Twilight.
Irijalba, (Spain, 1979) presents us with an exhibition about the way in which Western culture perceives reality through the use of artificial light. The placement of a light fixture, like those used in football stadiums with expectant audiences, within a natural, untouched forest creates a surreal atmosphere. The focus shifts away from the habitually illuminated scene, to the artifact that emanates light.The artist generates an amalgam of contrasts: western culture, which reconstructs reality with lighting effects with the eastern concept, which focuses more on shadows. We are faced with a critique of the society of the spectacle, the insignificance, the noise and the general conformity that dominates contemporary culture.

Dina Mitrani Gallery opened in November 2008 and specializes in international contemporary photography. The gallery currently represents eight emerging and mid-career artists and will be offering a lecture series and photo-based books. The gallery is committed to promoting its artists, as well as working with independent curators to produce unique group exhibitions

Looking at a diversity of artworks from different perspectives it is easy to see why abstractionism has survived. With that thought in mind we organized this collective exhibition in which we show different approaches to abstract art.

The exhibit brings together pieces by artists from different countries, periods and trajectories. Some are very well known internationally while others are best recognized in their own countries. Some of these artists dab at abstraction as part of their creative journey, as is with Ferrari and Raul Martinez, while the rest can be seen as maintaining it as a sort of more permanent trend.

Manuela Ribadeneira. If you are sinister…
Ribadeneira's Ribadeneira's practice can be understood as an interrogation around the phenomena of the territories. Territories interpreted not only as physical entities but also in relation to the processes that contrast ideological, political and identity wise horizons. The poetry contained in her works have the virtue of relativizing the individual gaze towards the sensible themes that she depicts, making the perceptive experience complex by not using obstinate rhetoric that wants to teach a lesson or denounce.

Jose Bedia. Ritual of Passage
First solo show of new work for Cuban contemporary artist Jose Bedia to take place in Miami, in 2 years. The artist will exhibit over 15 new mixed media paintings in which he continues to explore connections between our spiritual origins, indigenous cultures and our contemporary selves. Omar Pascual-Castillo writes:“We have the truth, the reality, of a man who finds in these cultures the hopes of life and the solution to the ethical-religious disaster of contemporary society, a man who finds in art a way to make them worthy as “new fetishes of adoration”, as if making a “conceptual ready-made” that uses art to recreate the force of his contents, of his inheritance, of his energy.”

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1959 Jose Bedia has come to the forefront of contemporary artistic production as is recognized as one if not the most important artist to have emerged from Cuba during the past 20 years. He has exhibited in countless internationally renowned museums, receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994 and is part many of the most significant private and public collections across the globe including the MOMA in New York, The Whitney Museum, the Tate Gallery and the Hirschorn Museum in Washington D.C.

There will also be a retrospective of the work of Jose Bedia at the MIA Art Fair 2010 taking place 7th – 10th of January at the Miami Beach Convention Center

Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Kito Mbiango. 'L'Orange Elegans',
2008
Mixed Media on Canvas

Kito Mbiango. Solo Show
Mbiango draws from his wide-ranging travels and photographic experience in producing works that excite the imagination by crossing and blurring cultural borders between Eastern and Western spheres of influence. Elements of post-colonial commentary (initiated via found 18th and 19th Century engravings in the style of John James Audubon, J. Barralet, and James Fittler) and modern cultural references (through the use of turn-of-the-century photography and silkscreens) converge in a rich, complex layering of color and graphic embellishment.Above all, however, emerging artist Mbiango’s more pressing concern is the unity of both artistic and human ingredients: the integration of Eastern and Western influences seeks to peacefully reconcile the inherent cultural differences so ubiquitous in postmodern society. Overall, the goal forMbiango is to gather both art and its viewer into one stunning, deeply spiritual achievement.

Kito Mbiango was born in Brussels in 1966. He is completely self-taught in his technique and utilizes multiple production methods including image transfer and mixed media assemblage all applied meticulously by hand.

People who were touched by a personal tragedy, perhaps the loss of a loved one due to everyday crime, seek some sort of consolation or closure. His work explores time travel and the possibility to say one last goodbye or undo facts, such as death, thus contributing to a more humane and happy society.

Both approach the technique of assemblage of found objects with thematic similarities yet each achieves a striking difference as is evident in the presentation of the final artworks.Rivera-Bond places an installation in the galleries project room as well as works in the main space. Also in the main space, Haynes will be exhibiting 3 dimensional constructions and directing an audience participatory piece involving a new work designed around the theme of words as text, written or typed.

Both artists address the “feminine” as a means of personal expression in reference to common societal rolls, consumerism, and the body.

Gabriela Morawetz. Closer To Me Than Myself
In these works Polish artist Mprawetz explores the issues of duality that accompany individuals. The viewer is placed in the position of the alter ego in relation to the characters represented in the work.Julie L. Friel. Gravy in her own words
“These feral figures that inhabit my cityscapes are of you! However, there are a few self-portraits in there. This thick mix of gravy is influenced by everything from the primitive art in the Pacific Northwest, to the popular culture, and then on to street art and graffiti.”

Also, Cintas award winner, Cuban, Gladys Triana and “Todos los cuerpos extraños”, a curatorial project by Pasajero Cultural from Spain.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Andres Ferrandis. THAW
Andrea Chehebar. Purusha (Project Room)
About THAW: Using color, non-conventional media and materials, and strategic placement, Andres Ferrandisaccomplishes pieces that capture the spectator’s curiosity for truth and thought. Andres’ work depicts an evident influence from constructivist and architectural trends. The appeal lies in the fact that there is no abstraction in the creative process of his pieces. Born in Spain and a resident of Miami since 2002,Ferrandis’ concept of footprints left behind is portrayed in his work through his tactical minimal brushstroke and linear panels; just as time has passed by in our dimension, his brush has passed leaving reminiscent color behind.Purusha (Project Room)
About Andrea Chehebar: As a Miami Resident, this Colombian artist will be presenting Photography, Video Installation, and mixed media pieces

“We are all different on the outside; no one human being is or thinks exactly the same as another. So, what is it that unites us all? What is that imperishable, unchanging essence we all seem to share?

Purusha, pure consciousness, is the divine self that abides in all beings and guides us. What is due to us will eventually reach us naturally and with no need to worry.

Arnaldo Anaya – Lucca. Adam and Eve.One of today’s leading fashion photographers, Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca, will be presenting his first fine art solo exhibition, “Adam and Eve,” at Luis Perez Galeria in Wynwood, Miami during this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, hosted by Manuel Norena. Anaya-Lucca is a renowned fashion photographer known for capturing the world of Ralph Lauren rethinks classic imagery as his own personal expression of events in history.

For his first exhibition of its type, Anaya-Lucca rethinks classic imagery in a more personal way, animating events in history with a curiosity that is both critical and sensual. Adam and Eve is a nude study inspired by 17th and 18th Century renaissance paintings. The images reflect the struggle of sensuality, temptation and shame that underlies the human condition as well as the joy of sexual innocence. The artist also wanted to address situations where the line between internal and external sense of self was/is in conflict throughout human history. The set design for the exhibition is also by Manuel Norena with Jed Root in New York.

Doner Photography. Recent Works. Doner will unveil large-scale photographs and mixed-media imagery. Prints from the December 1st interactive installation will also be on display.
His centerpiece will be a large-scale photographic diptych of exploding artist-edition luxury handbags "Louis Vuitton, Murakami Cerises," and "Louis Vuitton, Richard Prince Jokes."Accompanying the diptych, and treading the line between photography and sculpture, will be "Edition of 1,” 15 unique photographic sculptures featuring luxury goods explosions, idealized and uninhibited nudes, and landscapes abstracted from the ethereal spaces of the earlier performance installation. Each “Edition of 1” framed 16” x 20” photograph will be fused with materials from the now-deconstructed antechamber environment -- nylon from the bodysuits, silk-screens of explosions and nudes over nylon or Plexiglas, and bits of debris from the detonated luxury goods.

Claudio Ethos, creates a multi-dimensional illustration on the exterior wall of 101/exhibit
Raised in the poverty-stricken neighborhoods of his native Sao Paolo, Brazil, Ethos became deeply influenced by the calligraphic atmosphere and graffiti art on the streets around him. He decided he, too, would become a “graffiteiro,” or urban painter.

David Michael Bowers. New Works
From a blank surface painstakingly prepared with rabbit skin glue, chalk and white zinc, acclaimed painter David Michael Bowers delves into a world that has been described as “surrealistic,” “contemporary fantastic” and “illusionary,” as he blends modern themes and whimsical ideas with the techniques of the great masters.

Bowers began his career as an illustrator and has created more than 100 magazine covers.

All three shows will be on view until January 10, 2010

José Bechara. Pássaros geometricos e pelo menos um pássaro rectangular!
Bechara was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in this most recent exhibition of his work, Pássaros geométricos e pelo menos um pássaro rectangular! (Geometric Birds, a Rectangular Bird at Least), he continues to explore dualities. They remain traditional in that most are two-dimensional works of oil on canvas, yet contemporary in their incorporation and manipulation of rust as a medium. They include very rigid elements of geometry, but couple them with soft transitions of tones and colors.
Uisuk Byeon, Young Cho, Jessica Labatte & Briana Schweizer. The Triumph of Patience
Materials transform over time. The artists in this exhibition investigate and capture the frailty of their respective materials, while also reworking and transforming them. Working in Chicago, a city with deep foundations in labor, these artists employ common materials as a means of transcendence.Colectivo MR. Marina Garcia Burgos. Ricardo Ramon Jarne.

Kito Mbiango. 'L'Orange Elegans',
2008
Mixed Media on Canvas

Kito Mbiango. Solo Show
Mbiango draws from his wide-ranging travels and photographic experience in producing works that excite the imagination by crossing and blurring cultural borders between Eastern and Western spheres of influence. Elements of post-colonial commentary (initiated via found 18th and 19th Century engravings in the style of John James Audubon, J. Barralet, and James Fittler) and modern cultural references (through the use of turn-of-the-century photography and silkscreens) converge in a rich, complex layering of color and graphic embellishment.Above all, however, emerging artist Mbiango’s more pressing concern is the unity of both artistic and human ingredients: the integration of Eastern and Western influences seeks to peacefully reconcile the inherent cultural differences so ubiquitous in postmodern society. Overall, the goal forMbiango is to gather both art and its viewer into one stunning, deeply spiritual achievement.

Kito Mbiango was born in Brussels in 1966. He is completely self-taught in his technique and utilizes multiple production methods including image transfer and mixed media assemblage all applied meticulously by hand.

He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Derek Yaniger. Paintings
Here is a brief bio in Derek's own words...“Okey Dokey Doggie Daddy, lemme give ya' the skinny on what makes me tick tock.

I sprung off my squawkers in 1960 in SwineCity Arkansas. Once I ponied up the bread, I split. I blew into Atlanta 'round the mid '80s and gotta gig scratchin' out art at a local sweatshop. I copped a squat there for 3 years but the cabbage was like, nowheresville, so I just had to cut out. I gave that nogoodnik from creepsville the heave-ho. I still roost in Georgia but nowadays I print my own foldin' green. Over the past 20 years, give or take, I've rolled out chicken scratchins for some way solid big wigs like Marvel Comics and Cartoon Network. Today I spend my dims and brights pedalin' my art to such mags as Atomic, Barracuda, and Car Kulture Deluxe. I also land a lot of gigs doin' prints for shows like Tiki Oasis, Hukilau, and the Wild Weekend.

Once you get a load of my art I hope you dig it the most. If it really flips your wig and you want me to scrawl somethin' out just for you, snap the whip, I'l make the trip. Here's wishin' you a one way ticket to Flipsville.

Plant ya' now, dig ya' later!”

Known for his witty pieces Magnus Sigurdarson is back with a ‘documentary’ tale of his trip to England. He worked in this project with Paul Stoppi and this is not the first time that both artists have worked together in collaborative projects, they also produced The Stranger: El Vikingo-Loss of an identity.Magnus’ work is characterized by a peculiar sense of humor and for being autobiographical, showing an existentialist view of life. As an Icelandic living in Miami now Magnus has been going through a process of adaptation to this environment, a situation that has made him aware of his distinctiveness. This questioning is what has driven him to look deeply at identity, hence the ‘posing’ as different characters. For this exhibition he has worked in various media: photography, sculpture and his trademark newspaper installations.

El Contrato (The Contract) is a series of photographs depicting a woman's journey of self discovery and identity. Although inspired by the artist's personal experience, many universal themes are presented that create a dialogue with the viewer. Gender, family, life cycles and memory are symbolically represented with elements charged with ritual and spirituality. The contract of loyalty with the fears and prejudices of the past is broken and the woman becomes free to discover herself in the many roles within contemporary society.Dina Mitrani Gallery opened in November 2008 and specializes in international contemporary photography. The gallery represents emerging and mid-career artists, offers artists talks and lectures on photography as well as photo-based books. The gallery is committed to promoting its artists, as well as working with independent curators to produce unique group exhibitions.

Magdalena Atria. Monstrous Moonshine
Magdalena Atria’s first solo exhibition in Miami presents us with a well-balanced display of her most recent works. Living and working in Santiago de Chile, Atria has developed a significant local and international career, with multiple solo exhibitions and participation in important international exhibitions at venues such as The Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA (Los Angeles), The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art (Austin), Bienal de Mercosul (Porto Alegre, Brasil), among others.Atria’s work connects with the modernist tradition of geometric abstraction, but with the express intent to relate it to specific visual situations encountered in the world. Abstraction within the modernist tradition searched for the absolute, for a disembodied realm of pure relations and correspondences, while Atria’s interest focuses not on the possibility of approaching pure relations but rather on its impossibility.

The main piece, which gives its name to the show, is a large scale painting made with plasticine (non-hardening modeling clay) directly attached to the wall of the gallery. Plasticine, a kind of modeling clay commonly used by children at a very young age for making small figures or similar crafts, is a material Atria has been working with for some time now, creating paintings with intricate surfaces composed of highly detailed and precise abstract images.

Fragmentary Memories
Anja Marais & Guillermo PortielesAnd Artformz Outzide Hosts a special guest performance by:The Oscar Fuentes Combo

Guillermo Portieles grew up studying art in Cuba from the I.S.A Institute of Superior Fine Arts to the San Alejandro School of Fine Arts in Havana. In the early 90’s he immigrated to the US and began winning awards and showing nationally in galleries and .

Portieles’ works are predominantly 2-dimensional, however in this show we will see a unique and compelling sculptural object accompanying his paintings in this exhibit. The figurative and symbolic works are distant yet familiar at the same time, powerfully conjuring up his recollections of youth, homeland, and way of life in a Cuba, ever-present in his thoughts.

Anja Maris’ work examines the fragility of life and identity. In the gallery her installation work addresses the same theme yet pushes one’s imagination to the edge of possibilities. She is from South Africa where she grew up and received her degree. After graduating from the University of South Africa, Marais immigrated to the United States .

Her piece in the main space is explained as a hypothesis of ‘Cellular Memory’ (also the title of the work). Cellular memory is the speculative notion that human body cells contain clues to our personalities, tastes, and histories, independently of either genetic codes or brain cells. Will your cells encoding include the sins of your fathers, will your body’s memory be inherently filled with these genetic conflicts?

José Antonio Hernández Diez. Recent Work
This exhibition presents new work in progress from José Antonio Hernández Diez and will evolve as it travels to new venues. After its presentation at KaBe Contemporary this exhibition will travel to Periférico Caracas among other venues in 2010.This show features the Venezuelan artist’s first solo exhibition in Miami, his most recent work, an installation consisting of video and photography, reflecting the sentimental side of human beings. People who were touched by a personal tragedy, perhaps the loss of a loved one due to everyday crime, seek some sort of consolation or closure. His work explores time travel and the possibility to say one last goodbye or undo facts, such as death, thus contributing to a more humane and happy society.

Leonel Matheu. Fusion.
Matheu’s iconic images, reminiscent of child’s play, simplicity, and at times injured naiveté, make a re-appearance in“FUSION”, a collection of drawings by the artist. This interactive installation involves the spectator in the artwork by making him or her a crucial character or symbol in the piece itself. In fact, it is not until the spectator becomes involved that the piece is really complete. Viewers will have a chance to take a photograph with the installation, making the artistic experience engaging and lasting.“Fusion is a show in which a series of individual pieces that have distinct characteristics stand together in a collaborative theme; a theme that is rich in a reflective and analytical spirit. Within this exhibit, the spectator will find “Fusion”, the piece that inspired the exhibit and gave it its name. “Fusion” is a piece that fuses time and space into reality-- a reality that results from the presence of humans and art in the physical sense of a world created by an originally artistic idea.” - Leonel Matheu

Laurie Recanati, Leila

Laurie Recanati. New Works
Throughout her work Laurie is interested in how time and emotion can be symbolized by objects. She enjoys the feeling that life can often seem quite surreal, and employs a playful approach to exploring its physicality and possibilities...Laurie has undertaken numerous public commissions across Israel. Her mosaics can be seen in hospitals, schools, gardens and offices across the county. The work includes fountains, panels, flooring, furniture and sculptures.

Laurie’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is in numerous private and public collections. Much of her work has been created in response to our disposable society. If an object is slightly damaged, it is thrown away rather than repaired and then quickly replaced. Materials such as broken china and old teapots, shattered bus shelter glass and buttons are all incorporated within her work.

By adorning discarded, functional objects she transforms the readymade, pushing “junk” into a fine art context. The metamorphosis of the ordinary into the extraordinary continues to fascinate her. Laurie is available for commissions for homes, gardens and corporate clients.

Daniel Bottero, Reaching To Love, mixed media on canvas, 2006, 86 x 82 in.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero

"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Found Object/Found Love: 30 Years of Art with Pablo Cano.
Co-Curated by Anthony Ardavin & Lauren Wagner, this celebratory thirtieth year of art will take a look back at the early work of Cano and follow him on his artful journey beginning in Baltimore and ending back here in his beloved Miami. Found Object/ Found Love will feature unique never-before shown oil paintings, figurative sculptures, ceramics and of course, his notable marionettes.
Accompanying the exhibition, Pablo Cano has teamed up with master puppeteer Jim Hammond to create “DOG”, a Shadow Puppet Play. It is a story about a Dog who pursues a “red squeaky ball” through famous paintings and sculptures in art history. The ball is used as a metaphor for each of our simplest pursuits of happiness. Using miniature style of overhead projector shadow puppetry that Jim has used in commissions by New World Symphony and The Museum of Art - Fort Lauderdale, Pablo and Jim have developed a surreal non-linear world that explores scale and two dimensional details. Keeping true with his use of found materials for his artwork, Pablo created each shadow puppet from plastic BEWARE OF THE DOG signs. “DOG” brings together art education, music and entertainment to young and old alike.

(Saturday 13 at noon, tickets are $15.00 for Adults, $10.00 for Members, Children under 13 no charge).

Yvonne Cordoba. Eric Torriente. Max A. Kraushaar
Featuring: Agustin de Llanos
The exhibition aims to display classically trained figurative, young, emerging artists who utilize contemporary subject matters. Promising Venezuelan artist, Yvonne Cordobaexplores various esoteric themes, the most present being solitude, which she illustrates as a necessary means through which to achieve self-awareness as both an artist and as an individual.Rising Chilean talent, Max A. Kraushaar uses reflections of his own subconscious to create what he calls "Expressive Surrealistic Mixed Media. "

Flourishing Cuban artist, Eric Torriente presents works from his latest portfolio releases Outbound Tales and The Last Glaciation. The selected works from Outbound Tales are expressionistic depictions of old stories and past revelations.

Finally, breaking from the figurative, thriving experimental Spanish artist Agustin de Llanos, presents an abstract series of clean, minimalist, elegant works that play with light, dimension, textures and mediums, which he calls "shadows of absences". The exhibition intends to display new forms of conceptual ideas in classic planes of the figurative and abstract.

Adam and Eve.One of today’s leading fashion photographers, Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca, will be presenting his first fine art solo exhibition, “Adam and Eve,” at Luis Perez Galeria in Wynwood, Miami during this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, hosted by Manuel Norena. Anaya-Lucca is a renowned fashion photographer known for capturing the world of Ralph Lauren rethinks classic imagery as his own personal expression of events in history.

For his first exhibition of its type, Anaya-Lucca rethinks classic imagery in a more personal way, animating events in history with a curiosity that is both critical and sensual. Adam and Eve is a nude study inspired by 17th and 18th Century renaissance paintings. The images reflect the struggle of sensuality, temptation and shame that underlies the human condition as well as the joy of sexual innocence. The artist also wanted to address situations where the line between internal and external sense of self was/is in conflict throughout human history. The set design for the exhibition is also by Manuel Norena with Jed Root in New York.

Until March 25th
Mirrors, Messages, Manifestations. Patrick de Castro, in the Main Gallery space and Jacquenette Arnette and Hugo Moro’s on-site installation in the Project room.

For Patrick, the clearest thought is “change is the only constant”. By eliminating “excess baggage”, he emphasizes working conceptually, under the pretext of “less is more”. Using rich color fields, he explores form and space, and creates collages from old books, magazines and found objects. He investigates dreams and archetypes of the collective unconscious, developing symbols as images that refer to oneself and operating in a space of human consciousness that transcends history and culture.

Hugo Moro and Jacquenette Arnette are both artists that work intuitively using found materials or appropriate references freely in accordance to their motives. Just from their return from theGhetto Biennale in Haiti they wanted to begin a dialogue about the relevance and haphazard nature of communication. The experience of being in that environment using the most basic of communication in order to get ideas across and actions was impactful. The resulting work will discuss the fundamentals of perception using the construct of a double helix. The building block of life that is the most basic of constructions is as an emblem of the constructive nature of communication.

David Michael Bowers. From a blank surface painstakingly prepared with rabbit skin glue, chalk and white zinc, acclaimed painter Bowers delves into a world that has been described as “surrealistic,” “contemporary fantastic” and “illusionary,” as he blends modern themes and whimsical ideas with the techniques of the great masters.Claudio Ethos, raised in the poverty-stricken neighborhoods of his native Sao Paolo, Brazil, Ethos became deeply influenced by the calligraphic atmosphere and graffiti art on the streets around him. He decided he, too, would become a “graffiteiro,” or urban painter.

Michelle Hinebrook. “Abstraction in my work emerges through sensation, emotion, memory, physical experiences and material experimentation. I utilize fractal patterns, spatial arrangements and color contrasts to influence the viewer's perception and definition of internal and external space. I want the viewer to have an experience of the infinite. The paintings consist of interrelated layers of geometric motifs, circular, hexagonal or polyhedral lattices…”.

Magdalena Atria. Monstrous Moonshine
Magdalena Atria’s first solo exhibition in Miami presents us with a well-balanced display of her most recent works. Living and working in Santiago de Chile, Atria has developed a significant local and international career, with multiple solo exhibitions and participation in important international exhibitions at venues such as The Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA (Los Angeles), The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art (Austin), Bienal de Mercosul (Porto Alegre, Brasil), among others.Atria’s work connects with the modernist tradition of geometric abstraction, but with the express intent to relate it to specific visual situations encountered in the world. Abstraction within the modernist tradition searched for the absolute, for a disembodied realm of pure relations and correspondences, while Atria’s interest focuses not on the possibility of approaching pure relations but rather on its impossibility.

The main piece, which gives its name to the show, is a large scale painting made with plasticine (non-hardening modeling clay) directly attached to the wall of the gallery. Plasticine, a kind of modeling clay commonly used by children at a very young age for making small figures or similar crafts, is a material Atria has been working with for some time now, creating paintings with intricate surfaces composed of highly detailed and precise abstract images.

These photographs, primarily of Peru, Costa Rica and Colombia were taken with a hand-made Linhof camera and are selenium toned silver gelatin prints.Now, at the height of his career, Algaze's 152-page monograph titled Portfolio will be presented at the opening of this exhibition. After 40 years as a self taught photographer and having been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, Algaze is pleased to be showing these landscapes in Miami where they have never been shown before. Algaze was born in Cuba, but has called Miami home since 1960; his photographs of Latin America are a way for him to reconcile his exile from his native homeland. His images of Spanish speaking places evoke emotion and mystery through his use of light. The streets, bars, café’s and cathedrals are dreamlike and nostalgic, yet documentary in their depiction of daily life.

Main Gallery: Carolina Sardi & Ted LarsenProject Room: The Merger
Artists Carolina Sardi and Ted Larsen base their visual idiom on minimalist beliefs. Their works engage in a discourse that transcends aesthetic elements and explores the fundamental nature of their worlds.Carolina Sardi’s installations are poetic equations. Her latest series delicately trace celestial paths. Her new works are made of single pieces rather than individually installed shapes; they possess the speed, and sleek mobility of shooting stars.

Ted Larsen began working with salvaged metal in 2000. His latest series explores the importance of the individual as a component of the “whole”. Larsen’s sculptures transcend aesthetic beauty, allowing each viewer to assign them a place in their world.

The Merger, a collaborative venture by Cuban artists Mario Miguel Gonzalez, Niels Moleiro Luis, and Alain Pino recreate ubiquitous and mundane objects on a grand scale, presenting palatable socio-political metaphors.

Scott Scheidly. Paintings
“Ohio Born. At age four I attempted my first art project by devouring a 10 pack of crayons thus turning my diaper into a Jackson Pollack. At age six I was introduced to the sweet nectar of school paste. At around this same time period I began producing turkey drawings by tracing my hand. At age seven I lost my thumb in an unfortunate Big Wheel accident ending my successful "Hand Turkey Period". At age ten I ate more paste, however at age eleven I switched to water based paints & modeling clay.Between age twelve to sixteen I was in a daze from the paints I had eaten which I found out to be oil based. I did not produce much art during this time which we will call the "Your Sons Not Quit Right Period". At age seventeen I had kicked my habits and refined my skills and began to earn money with art for the first time by doing fellow students art projects for lunch money.

At age twenty I apparently graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and moved to Florida unbeknownst to me. I still live in Florida where I enjoy floundering about and painting pretty pictures, and I still eat paste now and again just to remind myself of my roots and how I ended up like this. Some day I hope not to be famous.” SS

Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Ivelisse Jimenez. Blind Enough to See
Painting becomes a point of departure to construct pieces dealing with simultaneity and contradiction. The manner in which objects, images and materials are articulated questions hierarchies of what is most present. Structures are made of diverse elements partially covered by a veil that prevents frontal access. Images constantly shift between integration and disintegration.
Daniel Gonzalez. Pimp Art History
A maquillage of concepts takes shape through historic practices of handicraft.
Sewn sequins and images enriched with style by adding rhinestones and bijoux, are glam representations of intense moments and desires where classic and contemporary live together in groomed, adorned and embellished artwork.

Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

Critics have described Bates’ work as “an artistic dialogue with Twombly, Rauschenberg, and Rothko.” “Her asymmetrical bi-polar masses of color may apprehend a point/counterpoint in sync with Rothko’s own renowned series of “Untitleds.” “Bates and Twombly are both creatures of exile: he overlooks the Mediterranean from the Roman coast, whilst she seems in permanent exile on her hilltop overlooking the Pacific”. Bates work is included in many private and corporate collections from Washington, Boston, Greenwich and Palm Beach, to La Jolla, Palm Springs and Honolulu.Joe Hahn. Structures at Kelley Roy GalleryNew Series of Paintings, Samadhi-Luz and Unfolding Series (My Little Man). Samadhi is a Hindu and Buddhist term that describes a state of consciousness in which the perception of the experiencing subject becomes the experienced object. Hahn’s paintings appear to either dance or float in a serene state of existence. Hahn’s distinct language brings together traditional methods from Asian art and modern expressions of neo-minimalist aesthetics.

The exhibition aims to display classically trained figurative, young, emerging artists who utilize contemporary subject matters. Promising Venezuelan artist, Yvonne Cordobaexplores various esoteric themes, the most present being solitude, which she illustrates as a necessary means through which to achieve self-awareness as both an artist and as an individual.Rising Chilean talent, Max A. Kraushaar uses reflections of his own subconscious to create what he calls "Expressive Surrealistic Mixed Media. "

Flourishing Cuban artist, Eric Torriente presents works from his latest portfolio releases Outbound Tales and The Last Glaciation. The selected works from Outbound Tales are expressionistic depictions of old stories and past revelations.

Finally, breaking from the figurative, thriving experimental Spanish artist Agustin de Llanos, presents an abstract series of clean, minimalist, elegant works that play with light, dimension, textures and mediums, which he calls "shadows of absences". The exhibition intends to display new forms of conceptual ideas in classic planes of the figurative and abstract.

Found Object/Found Love: 30 Years of Art with Pablo Cano
Co-Curated by Anthony Ardavin & Lauren Wagner, this celebratory thirtieth year of art will take a look back at the early work of Cano and follow him on his artful journey beginning in Baltimore and ending back here in his beloved Miami. Found Object/ Found Love will feature unique never-before shown oil paintings, figurative sculptures, ceramics and of course, his notable marionettes.
Accompanying the exhibition, Pablo Cano has teamed up with master puppeteer Jim Hammond to create “DOG”, a Shadow Puppet Play. It is a story about a Dog who pursues a “red squeaky ball” through famous paintings and sculptures in art history. The ball is used as a metaphor for each of our simplest pursuits of happiness.Using miniature style of overhead projector shadow puppetry that Jim has used in commissions by New World Symphony and The Museum of Art - Fort Lauderdale, Pablo and Jim have developed a surreal non-linear world that explores scale and two dimensional details. Keeping true with his use of found materials for his artwork, Pablo created each shadow puppet from plastic BEWARE OF THE DOG signs. “DOG” brings together art education, music and entertainment to young and old alike.

Leslie Gabaldon. Goody Two Shoes.
Maria Cristina Carbonell. An idyllic world. (Project Room Second)Leslie Gabaldon’s brazenly and naughtily entitled Goody Two-Shoes stems from this notion and continues with the exploration sparked by “Domestic Intimacies” (2007) in which the artist entered the secret moments of a household’s everyday life. Goody Two-Shoes will present a series of photographic work that embodies an expression of women's sociological memory and their personal, ideological, and professional issues in the contemporary world.

“An Idyllic World is the private, intimate, and seemingly schizophrenic universe of the feminine characters I have created in my videos and paintings. My heroines are inspired by Nordic fairytales as well as by old legends and myths. Their allegorical existence is what defines their personalities and what makes them the visual element that triggers my stories; their presence alone makes evident how absurd the reality that surrounds them really is.” - Maria Cristina Carbonell

Sergio Garcia. Recent Works
Valdirio’s art is enchanting, magical, derived from a spiritual realm that is revealed to us through a soul that aspires to offset every weakness with optimism. Through complex symbolisms that are logical connections to the human and social conditions. She poses questions of deep intellectual meanings while allowing the viewer to mediate a kind of elusive beauty, often barred from today’s art. She encourages the exploration of image and surface to gaze within, as if peering into a mirror, ourselves and life’s secrets.Valdirio’s art is enchanting, magical, derived from a spiritual realm that is revealed to us through a soul that aspires to offset every weakness with optimism.

Daniel Bottero, Reaching To Love, mixed media on canvas, 2006, 86 x 82 in.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero

"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

30 x 22 in.
Robert Fleisher. Recent Works
Robert Fleisher refuses to look at the world the way the rest of us do. The self-taught painter, who resides in Miami Beach, creates microscopically detailed work using watercolor and oil. Meticulously rendered faces, hands, hair, buildings, and textures in Fleisher’s paintings may for a moment be mistaken as ordinary representation, but not for long. A closer look reveals that conventions of space, perspective, matter and gravity are broken at will.Stream-of-consciousness associations abound in his work, and often present the viewer a distinct sense of disorientation. Strange characters and odd juxtapositions make frequent appearances along with the ordinary, challenging the viewer to mine his or her own associations for meaning.

Signs, symbols and words often play a powerful role in his paintings. Billboards, advertisements and graffiti make frequent appearances. But again, Fleisher reads them his own way, revealing to us their oblique and hidden meanings.

Patrick de Castro. Jacqueline Arnette.
Hugo Moro
Mirrors, Messages, ManifestationsFor Patrick, the clearest thought is “change is the only constant”. By eliminating “excess baggage”, he emphasizes working conceptually, under the pretext of “less is more”. Using rich color fields, he explores form and space, and creates collages from old books, magazines and found objects. He investigates dreams and archetypes of the collective unconscious, developing symbols as images that refer to oneself and operating in a space of human consciousness that transcends history and culture.

Hugo Moro and Jacquenette Arnette are both artists that work intuitively using found materials or appropriate references freely in accordance to their motives. Just from their return from theGhetto Biennale in Haiti they wanted to begin a dialogue about the relevance and haphazard nature of communication. The experience of being in that environment using the most basic of communication in order to get ideas across and actions was impactful. The resulting work will discuss the fundamentals of perception using the construct of a double helix. The building block of life that is the most basic of constructions is as an emblem of the constructive nature of communication.

Also this month. for the International Cultural Exchange Biennale “As Far As The Eye Can See”, March 11-15, Diaspora Vibe Gallery is taking to Puerto Rico 26 people to work with the Puerto Rican artists and staff of Universidad del Sagrado Corazon.

Mario Algaze. Recent Dreams
Recent Dreams by Mario Algaze, are black and white panoramic landscapes of Latin America. These photographs, primarily of Peru, Costa Rica and Colombia were taken with a hand-made Linhof camera and are selenium toned silver gelatin prints.

Now, at the height of his career, Algaze's 152-page monograph titled Portfolio will be presented at the opening of this exhibition. After 40 years as a self taught photographer and having been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, Algaze is pleased to be showing these landscapes in Miami where they have never been shown before. Algaze was born in Cuba, but has called Miami home since 1960; his photographs of Latin America are a way for him to reconcile his exile from his native homeland. His images of Spanish speaking places evoke emotion and mystery through his use of light. The streets, bars, café’s and cathedrals are dreamlike and nostalgic, yet documentary in their depiction of daily life.

“Neither for music, nor poetry, nor the plastic arts do they possess any real feeling or receptivity…Nor can one expect anything else from women if one considers that the most eminent heads of the entire sex have proved incapable of a truly great, genuine achievement in art.” -
Schopenhauer.“On Women”, 1852

Much has changed, as Pan American Art Projects intends to prove by presenting a selection of works by female artists from the gallery’s collection. The artists featured work in varying media, from painting, photography, and sculpture to mixed media, and video installations. The exhibition showcases the evolution of the female voice in the development of artistic agendas. The emphasis of the exhibit is not on feminism, but rather on the female approach to such themes as representation of the body, maternity, separation, liberation, and the environment.

Mitch can be summed up in 3 words: Hot, Handsome and Hunkalicious!
His stunning illustration work has been featured in magazines from Newsweek to the New York Times, on the covers of million selling CD's and advertising campaigns from McDonalds to Coca-Cola! His fine art masterpieces have been exhibited from New York to Berlin to Tokyo! His tantalizing tattoo designs are a fixture on the walls of tattoo shops around the word! His genius has been collected in three tomes, "Good Taste Gone Bad", "Pwease Wuv Me" and "Mitch O'Connell Tattoos"!

He's treasured for his sense of humor, especially when it comes to pricing his art! Likes include: keeping it real, letting it all hang out, doing his own thing and getting down! Dislikes include: gallery owners and art directors who favor artists whose work is "good"! My God, doesn't "adequately groomed" count for anything anymore in this crazy, topsy-turvy world?!

Now... prepare to enter the wild world of "The World's Grooviest Artist" himself, Mitch O'Connell!

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999

Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Pepe López, Andres Monteagudo and Juan Iribarren
A Collective Sum. A collaborative exhibition of Geometric Perspectives by Three Visionary Artists.

Venezuelan artist, Pepe López creates artwork using disposable objects to represent the significance of sustainability. He uses sensible geometrics to demonstrate the physicality and tangibility of objects. Lopez invites us to view his journey and perspective of globalization by playing with representations of commercial society.

Spanish artist, Andres Monteagudo’s drawings are linear representations of negative and positive space. His work consists of wires on canvas, which seemingly lead to a tension within space and geometric dimensions. Each line seems to escape the horizon defying the limits of the canvas, making them appear three-dimensional and endless.

Juan Iribarren’s vision is to join together the incongruity between atmosphere and geometry in painting. Originally from Venezuela, Iribarren’s work reflects the evolution of contemporary Latin American art. Focusing on diagonals of light and shadows that occur on an empty white wall, which he documents on canvas. By intentionally displaying the paintings diagonally from one another creates a new irregularly shaped format showing the tension of their geometry.

Michael Flomen. Inside Out
Inside Out marks the first time Michael Flomen creates an environment with his photographic works, which continue to be a dialogue with nature. Since his 2006 exhibition at the gallery, Teeming, Flomen has experimented further into the elemental and phenomenal worlds in nature revealing visions and experiences we seldom see and feel in our increasingly expanding destruction and dominance of the planet. His new Scuptarama, a section of an abandoned building, is a stage to place and provoke the viewer of where we are, who we are, and what we are doing. .
Sterz | Naïve
In my work, lines of action help me generate drawing intuitively as well as through shapes and patterns found in many walks of life and cultures. Whether this process emerges from an obsessive compulsive disorder is a legitimate question. Ultimately, though, my goal is to relax viewers and to provoke in them an almost hypnotic state through the explorations of multiple, interconnected forms.

Kevin Hart | Line of Action

In these pieces I am not trying to dazzle with brilliance, baffle anyone with long winded rhetoric, or generate dialogue via shock art. I just want to make work that can be enjoyed with no exclusions.

Rapture. Natasha Duwin & Henning Haupt

Artformz presents “RAPTURE”, a celebration of change and possibilities, as expressed by artists Natasha Duwin & Henning Haupt sharing an exciting capacity to express very complex ideas poetically.

Henning Haupt’s color-space paintings were completed, after relocating from Berlin to Fort Lauderdale in 2008. His work is informed by this transition to the subtropical climate combined with the troubling idea of how its wonders might transform under the current influence of ecological disaster. His series of paintings and drawings develop a lyrical theme celebrating the rapture of change.

Natasha Duwin’s work is an elaboration of ideas related to the female condition, using traditionally “feminine” techniques and non-traditional materials, such as metal and organic matter. The richness of the needlework does not call attention to itself, yet it manages to create a new environment, one of truly realized possibilities – rapture indeed!

Until April 30
Goody Two Shoes. New work by Leslie Gabaldon.
An idyllic world. By Maria Cristina Carbonell. (Project Room Second)

Leslie Gabaldon Goody Two-Shoes:
“The phrase ‘Goody two-shoes’, often used to describe an excessively or annoyingly virtuous person, has in recent years developed a more negative connotation, implying that the virtuousness of a goody two-shoes is insincere.“

Leslie Gabaldon’s brazenly and naughtily entitled “Goody Two-Shoes” stems from this notion and continues with the exploration sparked by “Domestic Intimacies” (2007) in which the artist entered the secret moments of a household’s everyday life. “Goody Two-Shoes” will present a series of photographic work that embodies an expression of women's sociological memory and their personal, ideological, and professional issues in the contemporary world.

Maria Cristina Carbonell An Idyllic World:
In the gallery project room, a series of paintings, sculptures, and video art compose artist Maria Cristina Carbonell’s “An Idyllic World”, a showing that translates ideas of female identity, intimacy, and being.

“An Idyllic World is the private, intimate, and seemingly schizophrenic universe of the feminine characters I have created in my videos and paintings. My heroines are inspired by Nordic fairytales as well as by old legends and myths”
Maria Cristina Carbonell

Although the artist’s origins are widely different the final product is singular to each. One can see the link of creative thought that guides their artistic production inspired by a vocabulary of diverse contemporary cultures.

Daniel Bottero, Reaching To Love, mixed media on canvas, 2006, 86 x 82 in.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero

"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Arden Quin. Bolívar. Bay. Kosice. Llorens. Laañ. Rothfuss. Uricchio.
Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.

The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

Michael Costello Paints
Childhood Myths Grown Up
The art of Michael Costello, a Boston-based contemporary realist painter, plays with perceptions of beauty, sexuality and maturity. Conventional standards of attraction are attacked and provoked in each brush stroke, while the complete image speaks of the marginalization of the individual in a society based on esthetic. His work has been described as “childhood myths grown up and, therefore, uncomfortable mirrors on our own memories and perceptions of our maturity.”

John Sutherland, a collector of Costello’s paintings and close friend of the artist, said: “I find his work a complete representation of the painter himself. Often finding as much of him as his subject matter in each work. This naturally is the hallmark of visual language at its best and what any student, collector, academic or passive patron could hope to find when pursuing another man’s experience regardless of medium or expression.”

During the past thirty years, Costello’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout New England and is included in numerous public and private collections including The Abrams Collection, The Federal Reserve, The Kemper Collection, and the Boston Public Library. In 2007, Costello was one of five artists chosen to be a Pollack Krasner Byrdcliffe Master. The Byrdcliffe Art Colony was founded by Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead to establish an environment in which artists could return to working while inspired by their natural surroundings. Michael began his artistic studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and later received a graduate degree from the Massachusetts College of Art.

Objects of Desire. Rodney Jackson and Caiphus Moore

A unique art movement has emerged combining the dynamic and interrelated worlds of comics, anime and hip-hop, with the elements of modern art. This movement celebrates its multi-cultural, international influence on science fiction, action and adventure and other confluences within and surrounding present day artistic culture. This movement is defined by an inspired, original approach to existing entertainment media that redefines the media itself. In the spirit of this, R. Jackson has coined this new genre “DON?” in tribute to the famed hip-hop producer J Dilla whose last work, the magnum opus “Donuts” left an indelible mark on that industry.

R. Jackson & Caiphus are pushing DON? into the realm of Pop Art. With DON?POP they explore the meaning of desire as it relates to spirituality in the context of popular culture. This new work challenges viewers to examine their desires and the reason they exist.

Diaspora Vibe Gallery is a multi-disciplinary art space serving as a laboratory for emerging artists of the Caribbean Diaspora and other artists of color, providing them with a contemporary sensibility to explore and experiment with new forms and cultural themes.

Although Aboriginal art has only been internationally recognized as a significant movement for the past forty years, its history is long and integral to the work by the present-day artists included in this exhibition. As has occurred elsewhere, the indigenous people of Australia have been marginalized in their own land for much of recent history. Changes began to arise in the 1960’s and 1970’s that served as a catalyst for the discovery by the Western world of the art produced by a multitude of communities located throughout the continent.

It is an art based on belief systems unique to Australia, which often refer to the Dreamtime in which creation took place. This Dreamtime involved travels of the creation ancestors, journeys that continue to be followed today along Dream paths that lead to important sites all over the country. In this manner, the art is linked not only to the Aboriginal people and history, but to the land itself.

“small wonders (art) salon” Summer Fundraising ProjectSixty-two of South Florida’s best local artists will be exhibiting affordable small jewels of artwork. The works will fill the wall space and the gallery will be converted into a cornucopian installation of diverse expressions. The exhibit will highlight a multitude of media, including painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, ceramics, and printmaking. Many artists will be exhibiting works that are their latest explorations. Small Wonders aims to raise everyone’s respect for these thoughtful – coveted - irreverent – spontaneous - small works, and to showcase these works that are an important part of every artists practice as they experiment and explore ideas not connected to producing work for any specific market trend, nor for institutions or galleries. Small Wonders is an experimental event, placing a finger on the pulse of what is happening now and showcasing it. This art belongs to “now”, small, but quick and directly to the point.

Visit: http://artformzprojects.blogspot.com/ for a preview of the artists works and purchase one online today. Sales support “ArtistaInvitaArtista” an Artformz cultural exchange with artists from the city of Valencia, Spain.

Yucef Merhi. WordsThe exhibition comprises a group of works that deal with the use of language and technology in a variety of media. By means of video-games, web interfaces, slide projectors, floppy disks and other materials, Merhi presents a surprising approach to experience poetry; a novel conception of a perfect language; and a thoughtful relationship between humans, words and machines.

Some of the works that will be on view are “Super Atari Poetry” (2005), a networked game installation made with Atari cartridges that enable people to play and create up to one thousand poems; “Versos Versus Versos” (2008), a web-based projection that shows animated verses running non-stop to create hundreds of eloquent random poems; and “Light” (2010), a synchronized light projection that displays the word lightin more than 20 different languages.

Performing live during the opening: !!!!!THE GOLDDUST LOUNGE!!!!!Mark “Atomos” Pilon. Sputnik Plunk
Mark Atomos Pilon was born under the Northern Lights, in Canada's mysterious north. Perhaps it's a childhood dwarfed by the aurora borealis that made him seek out his alias. After graduating from art school, Mark was researching an art project when he stumbled across a Walt Disney book called "Our Friend the ATOM". The Greek name Atomos leapt out at him. "It means indivisible, or the smallest possible object," Mark explains. "Mystery and science are a good working combination."

Now based on the West Coast, he sent his imagination into a future that may never arrive. Every aspect of his art is carefully computer drawn and then meticulously painted in acrylic layers, to give them a sharp, print-like synthetic quality.

Mark has worked in magazine design for over 15 years as a designer and illustrator. Today he is one of three creative directors for Vancouver's Georgia Straight Magazine His commercial clients include IKEA, Walgreens, the Sierra Club, and Virgin. He continues to illustrate for magazines worldwide and paints for galleries across North America. His paintings are a natural transition from his editorial illustrations, which are still computer constructed.

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Arden Quin. Bolívar. Bay. Kosice. Llorens. Laañ. Rothfuss. Uricchio.
Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

In a society where sexual liberation often has a tongue-in-cheek political innuendo, “Sticky & Sweet” examines sexuality as a means for personal identity through both self-expression and social labeling. Featured artists Eurydice, Carl Pascuzzi, Diane Arrieta, Jonathan Stein, Alexis Rodriguez-Duarte and Spunk and The Orange Kittens use their craft to shed light on sexuality as it relates to human nature – key elements being ambiguity, eroticism as well as overt and graphic references.

The show proposes a visual journey throughout Latin American graphic design exploring the covers of 519 historic contemporary rock albums. It’s a visual adventure far away from charts and ranks. Music to contemplate, full of colors and suggestive surprises that prove that graphic design is in great health in that region.

Jose Luis Landet. Sesera.
Amalia Caputo. Tableaux. 2nd. FloorArtist Mauro Giaconi wrote the following piece about his friendJose Luis Landet, with whom he has exhibited in collective shows in Mexico City and Buenos Aires: As if eternally jet lagged from the escape of comfort, the artist returned to the southernmost south and made himself productive. The hardest of laborers, a fearless painter and natural talent that produces without hesitation, he lives as if this were his only truth, creating without a second thought and observing without the slightest fear of ridicule. His work breaks an existing silence with a shout; he knows this and perhaps it is what gives him peace, letting the good deal with the bad. Here is where it gets complicated, where it is meant to be complicated, as he squints and paints the last memory that was lost. A chill runs up and down his spine as the darkness of an idea that has been submerged almost 4 kilometers into his soul re-emerges in his work... – Mauro Giaconi

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

In the words of local filmaker/photographer, Lyndale Pettus:“My photos are interiors and exteriors, daylight and night shots of angles of concrete, steel and glass full of endless repetition mixed with depth, light, and shadows.

101Marcus Antonius, Jansen, Power and Pandemic, 2010, Oil Enamel Collage on Canvas, 60 x 72 in.
Marcus Antonius Jansen. ZeitgeistJansen will exhibit large and small-scale works that carry us into the shadows of the 21st century. With a keen awareness of his surroundings, Jansen creates a surreal, urban-like atmosphere filled with subconscious revelations that foretell a future fraught with consequence. Violent brushstrokes, changing textures, and instinctive contrast of color reflect an explosive spontaneity that is the direct, raw effect of emotion.

Noted art historian Jerome A. Donson, who worked with many painters in the past, such as Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, states, "Jansen's paintings are reminiscent of the Ash Can school. There will be many followers in this style of work, but there will be only oneMarcus Jansen."

Jansen's intellectually provocative and paradoxical work encourages discourse among viewers. Inspired by political and social events of today, he paints his own interpretations as he tries to separate truth from fiction in a world of increasing disinformation. His paintings ask us to look at the world in a new way and to consider not only our interdependence but also the universal nature of our existence.

Objects of Desire. Rodney Jackson and Caiphus MooreA unique art movement has emerged combining the dynamic and interrelated worlds of comics, anime and hip-hop, with the elements of modern art. This movement celebrates its multi-cultural, international influence on science fiction, action and adventure and other confluences within and surrounding present day artistic culture. This movement is defined by an inspired, original approach to existing entertainment media that redefines the media itself. In the spirit of this, R. Jackson has coined this new genre “DONŪ” in tribute to the famed hip-hop producer J Dilla whose last work, the magnum opus “Donuts” left an indelible mark on that industry.

R. Jackson & Caiphus are pushing DONŪ into the realm of Pop Art. With DONŪPOP they explore the meaning of desire as it relates to spirituality in the context of popular culture. This new work challenges viewers to examine their desires and the reason they exist.

Diaspora Vibe Gallery is a multi-disciplinary art space serving as a laboratory for emerging artists of the Caribbean Diaspora and other artists of color, providing them with a contemporary sensibility to explore and experiment with new forms and cultural themes.

BildoReliefo is an exclusive technique Godon invented that combines the classic form of oil on canvas with 21st Century digital technology. The finished pieces are inspired by his original oil paintings that have been transformed with new colors and deep shadows creating dramatic three-dimensional effects. Cleverly integrated within most of his pieces are humorous caricatures of his wife, his dogs and the artist himself. On exhibit are BildoReliefos from the London, New York and Paris series.

Disposable: Nostalgia

Until August 28
Disposable: Nostalgia for the still image
Danielle Bender. Luis Lazo. Abner Nolan.
Samantha Salzinger. Humberto Torres. Colleen Plumb. Kyle Ford
Curated by Orlando EstradaThis show presents a reference to the obsolete disposable film camera and a connection to the disposable quality now associated with digital picture making. Disposable will feature eight emerging and mid career photographers whose work addresses the connection between photography and memory and how the digital revolution is transforming the notion.

Over the past twenty years, the digital revolution has literally lowered the value we place on pictures. We have replaced tangible documents, such as prints and negatives, with phantom information stored on Stick Drives and Memory Cards. While the ability to instantly see what the camera has captured has its advantages, what is seen on a palm-sized LCD screen is usually clear, crisp, and candy-coated. The anticipation that builds with the time spent waiting to develop and process film keeps the medium magical and breathes life into our images and the memories we have connected to them.

The photographers in this exhibition, regardless of processes used, give the viewer back what the digital revolution has taken away; the sense of nostalgia associated with the visual documentation of places and things.

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

“small wonders (art) salon” Summer Fundraising ProjectSixty-two of South Florida’s best local artists will be exhibiting affordable small jewels of artwork. The works will fill the wall space and the gallery will be converted into a cornucopian installation of diverse expressions. The exhibit will highlight a multitude of media, including painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, ceramics, and printmaking. Many artists will be exhibiting works that are their latest explorations. Small Wonders aims to raise everyone’s respect for these thoughtful – coveted - irreverent – spontaneous - small works, and to showcase these works that are an important part of every artists practice as they experiment and explore ideas not connected to producing work for any specific market trend, nor for institutions or galleries. Small Wonders is an experimental event, placing a finger on the pulse of what is happening now and showcasing it. This art belongs to “now”, small, but quick and directly to the point.

Visit: http://artformzprojects.blogspot.com/ for a preview of the artists works and purchase one online today. Sales support “ArtistaInvitaArtista” an Artformz cultural exchange with artists from the city of Valencia, Spain.

Yucef Merhi. WordsThe exhibition comprises a group of works that deal with the use of language and technology in a variety of media. By means of video-games, web interfaces, slide projectors, floppy disks and other materials, Merhi presents a surprising approach to experience poetry; a novel conception of a perfect language; and a thoughtful relationship between humans, words and machines.

Some of the works that will be on view are “Super Atari Poetry” (2005), a networked game installation made with Atari cartridges that enable people to play and create up to one thousand poems; “Versos Versus Versos” (2008), a web-based projection that shows animated verses running non-stop to create hundreds of eloquent random poems; and “Light” (2010), a synchronized light projection that displays the word lightin more than 20 different languages.

ideoboxJuan Iribarren
Pepe López, Andres Monteagudo and Juan Iribarren
A Collective Sum. A collaborative exhibition of Geometric Perspectives by Three Visionary Artists.Venezuelan artist, Pepe López creates artwork using disposable objects to represent the significance of sustainability. He uses sensible geometrics to demonstrate the physicality and tangibility of objects. Lopez invites us to view his journey and perspective of globalization by playing with representations of commercial society.

Spanish artist, Andres Monteagudo’s drawings are linear representations of negative and positive space. His work consists of wires on canvas, which seemingly lead to a tension within space and geometric dimensions. Each line seems to escape the horizon defying the limits of the canvas, making them appear three-dimensional and endless.

Juan Iribarren’s vision is to join together the incongruity between atmosphere and geometry in painting. Originally from Venezuela, Iribarren’s work reflects the evolution of contemporary Latin American art. Focusing on diagonals of light and shadows that occur on an empty white wall, which he documents on canvas. By intentionally displaying the paintings diagonally from one another creates a new irregularly shaped format showing the tension of their geometry.

Although Aboriginal art has only been internationally recognized as a significant movement for the past forty years, its history is long and integral to the work by the present-day artists included in this exhibition. As has occurred elsewhere, the indigenous people of Australia have been marginalized in their own land for much of recent history. Changes began to arise in the 1960’s and 1970’s that served as a catalyst for the discovery by the Western world of the art produced by a multitude of communities located throughout the continent.

Project Room: Kevin Hart | Line of Action
“ In my work, lines of action help me generate drawing intuitively as well as through shapes and patterns found in many walks of life and cultures. Whether this process emerges from an obsessive compulsive disorder is a legitimate question.”

These ink drawings scavenge the tripes and guts of the formal vs. the philosophical. One can begin to see the connections between the need to decorate the world around and the recreation of a world, the private milieu of the artist. Landet is taking the strides, leaving us wondering whether just a little bit of sameness can produce a whole wave of change in the species.” – José Springer for FlashArt.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Arden Quin. Bolívar. Bay. Kosice. Llorens. Laañ. Rothfuss. Uricchio.
Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

George Schroeder. Steel RedemptionInspired by the screeching-metal sounds of a salvage yard, San Antonio sculptor George Schroeder transforms the bangs and crashes into rough and tumble sculptures exhibiting in “Steel Redemption”.

Schroeder explains: "Working in the salvage yard is really loud,so you think about the noise,which generates all kinds of random images. My intention for this series was to create abstract forms derived from variety of sound experiences".

In his studio he has restored old metal-working machinery salvaged from various factories. Working with sheared or cut steel beams,Schroeder bends and Shapes them until the metal almost seems like a living thing. Curving in and out or appearing to fly off into space. Heavy marks and crude connections reflect the rough details of hand-forged metal.

This show, created and coordinated by Zona de Obras, the company responsible for many of the album covers by master Andrés Calamaro, as well as a long list of Latin American recording artists, is a tribute to the record itself and to the condition of being listened to, observed and felt. The show proposes a visual journey throughout Latin American graphic design exploring the covers of 519 historic contemporary rock albums. It’s a visual adventure far away from charts and ranks. Music to contemplate, full of colors and suggestive surprises that prove that graphic design is in great health in that region. Visual music composed by many generations of designers, photographers and illustrators that are key players on the “Rock in Spanish” concert.

The Artist premise that you can learn more history by looking at art than by reading books is the reason for taking the Little Ridding Hood to visit the Grand Louvre as well as to take her on his next visit to Chernobyl, another series of photographs that will be exhibit at Black Square Gallery this month.

Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

October 9 – October 22
Joe Abbati. InterkineticAbbati's installations are the culmination of 20 years experience in music, technology and metaphysical inquiry. Greatly influenced by 20th century proponents of "new" and "total" art, his work relies on the simultaneity of force-relations, light, sound and motion. Joe Abbati is a Master of Fine Art (MFA) graduate student.

"I am not satisfied with the static principle of conventional art," the artist states. "As a contemporary artist, I am empowered by the tools available today - electricity and electric light, sensors, digital microcontrollers, lasers, audio synthesizers, video projectors; the apparatus that make dynamic art possible." Abbati aims to create simple enclosed systems of dynamic interactions within the gallery, to make audiences conscious of the interconnected, active processes occurring outside the gallery..

Thursday October 7, 6:30 – 9 pm
Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss? By James Victore
Introduction by Michael Bierut.
Designed by Paul SahreAIGA Miami and New World School of the Arts invite you to attend a lecture by James Victore. This is the first book by one of the biggest names in graphic design today. James Victore leads readers through his “greatest hits” and tells the stories behind his inspirations, his process, and the lessons learned. Each page demonstrates his no-holds-barred take on the practice, business, and teaching of graphic design today. The result is an inspiring, funny, and honest book, which showcases 48 projects that have been plastered on the streets of New York, hung at MoMA, and featured in magazines all over the world.

Please join James Victore for a talk… on his new & first book. Over the past 25 years, the iconoclastic designer has strived for one thing in his work: “to make it personal.” Wrapped in a poster jacket designed by Victore, this book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the power of ink on paper.

Luis Cruz Azaceta. Trajectories / Trayectorias

Trajectories/Trayectorias is a major exhibit which will occupy the entire gallery, and will include several works from the solo show "Swimming to Havana" presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art earlier this year.

In the central piece of the exhibit “Hell Act" (2009) the artist ironically depicts a fleet of makeshift rafts aimlessly and helplessly bobbing around like toys in an enormous bath tub; the work illustrates the artist's constant struggle with the isolation, loss, and inexorability of being an immigrant.

Also included in the exhibit will be works like “Spill: Where is Superman when you need him” (2010) from his most recent series "Spill”. The piece touches on the inadequacies of human solutions and institutions in the face of catastrophe. There will also be sculptures, installations, and paintings from other recent periods included in the show.

Kanako Sasaki, Outcast, 200

Until October 30
Kanako Sasaki. Wanderlust“. . .So we should cast off all gloomy thoughts about our earthy lot and enjoy the pleasures of snow, moon, flowers and autumn leaves and drinking wine; living our lives like a gourd bobbing buoyantly downstream. This is the floating world.”  From the novels of c. 1665, Ukiyo Monogatari, Tales of the Floating World.

In her series Wanderlust, Kanako Sasaki (Japan, 1976) explores her own imaginative world influenced by traditional Japanese novels, Ukiyo-e paintings and childhood memories. In this inspired state, distracted from reality but informed by recollection, she composes her own floating world. Within her surreal and eccentric settings, Sasaki’s characters, usually herself, evoke ideas of isolation, escape and uninhibited freedom.The juxtaposition of bleak emotion within a fantastical landscape leaves the viewer mesmerized with wonderment.  Sasaki’s work also comments on issues such as the female experience, loss of innocence, hopeless romance and how Japanese culture is viewed from the outside.

Color ClimateThe two-person exhibition will feature new abstract painting installations by Brooklyn artist Matthew Deleget and Atlanta artist David E. Peterson.

Matthew Deleget is a conceptual, reductive painter who will present an installation of new Shuffle paintings. Informed by the “shuffle” feature on his iPod, each painting consists of a checkered grid of four colors completely selected at random, producing visual results that vary widely.These series of paintings are directly inspired by the legendary salsa ensemble Fania All-Stars.  Each will pay homage to a specific musician in the group, including Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz and Ray Barretto, among others.

David E. Peterson makes rule-based paintings that are informed by high-end industrial design goods, including laptop computers, athletic shoes, men’s fashion, and Modern architecture. (More) The three new suites paintings present his investigation into the formal qualities and associated consumer aspirations of three specific lines of designer goods, including Nixon’s Newton watch collection, Asics’ Onitsuka Tiger line of sneakers, and wallets designed by Paul Smith.

SIlvia Rivas. Landscape to Be Defined
To speak of the Rio de la Plata as a surface, as a setting, as a neutral platform.A search to define a landscape that attracts and shelters, yet later frightens and rejects.

Defining it by its minimal geometry, which does not capture one’s gaze, but rather in a subtle line on the horizon, in the color of the earth dissolved in the water... or the vibration of the light that gently weeps about what it hides in the soft texture of the plains.

The ever-present twinkling line of the horizon stands alone responding to the extremes of violence, of shelter, of lack and of abundance. The horizon is direction and certainty, beyond which an attainable reality can inevitably found.

The Every Other Day.
Curated by Donald Johnson Montenegro Featuring recent work by Carol Bove, Ernesto Burgos, Beth Campbell, Michael DeLucia, Andrés Ferrandis, Jonah Groeneboer, Charles Harlan, Tim Hyde, Zak Kitnick, Ian Pedigo, and Heather Rowe. An accompanying catalogue will be available on November 30 with essays by the curator and A.E. Benenson.How might the usual become unusual—how might the everyday become the every other day? The eleven artists included in this show each engage with this question. They emphasize the present but latent strangeness of the everyday materials and concepts with which they work, making the common uncommon through a subtle but potent subversion.

The “every other day” suggests an ongoing interruption of the everyday, a tactic that strives not for an isolated moment of shock but rather for a continual confrontation. It endeavors to weave its disruption into the fabric of the familiar, to create a continual hiccup in ordinary time. These artists use the tools and language of Minimalism, abstraction, architecture, and appropriation to make odd once again that to which we have become immune.

Much in the way that Minimalism compelled the viewer into a phenomenological interaction with the work, or that Pop enticed the viewer to turn a critical eye on mass culture, the work of these young artists draws the viewer to reconsider the possibilities of the ordinary.

Natasha Duwin exhibits sculptural objects and for the Opening Night she presents a special performance that is a surprising and poetic addition to her renowned work exploring the construction of the female identity, using mediums that have long been relegated to the worlds of labor and craft, such as embroidery and textiles. In fantastic multimedia constructions that combine text and preserved imagery, Donna Haynes will show new pieces telling visual narratives in her way to preserve and share personal journeys. One of the new members of the gallery, Mary Larsen, uses books and printed text as part of her mixed media paintings creating ethereal worlds of dreams, not quite recalled.

JOURNEYA thematic exhibition featuring works by chilean photographer Magdalena Correa and japanese video artist Hiraki Sawa.  JOURNEY, an exhibition curated by Emilio Navarro, presents a group of works that refers to internal and external journeys, one trough video exploring the intimate and personal world and one through photography discovering the world that surround us.

Accustomed to living between cultures, Japanese born and UK based video artist Hiraki Sawa (b.1977) embraces the movement of people and the mutable notion of home as central themes in his work.   .

The images captured by Chilean born and Spain based artist Magdalena Correa (b.1968), during her journey to the Antarctica, have a common denominator that is present in all of them: the snow.   Giving continuity to her past projects, Correa explores another isolated territory, geographically far from us, where the extreme and harsh weather conditions determine the development of the region and the way its inhabitants interact with nature.

Since its creation, this gallery has undertaken de challenge of showcasing the most interesting proposals in the international scene, and has done so with sensitivity and courage.

It has become a reference for experts in Latin American art. It has also been a first home to some new artisits, whom time has chosen as a way to reward the remarkable vision of this gallery. For many, Art Nouveau represents avant-garde, but it is perhaps the sharp intuition to choose master pieces of contemporary art what best defines the profile of this gallery.

Set in a magical and mysterious Scandinavian forest inhabited by eerie mystical characters intricately depicted in charcoal and ink drawings by Swedish artist Johan Björkegren. The longing for comfort is not lost in the innocence of a child and the warm love of a mother. Artists Ingrid Eliasson and Jennifer Basile bring a calming effect from this lurid fantasy with the detailed structured graphite drawings, juxtaposed over the rich biomorphic backgrounds. The feeling of a “cozy home” is amplified by the crocheted fiber tapestries.

Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

Omar Barquet. Pautas ( Rules)
Michiyoshi Deguchi. Inner Drawing. Project RoomOmar Barquet sheds the formal purism to move the geometry to an organic state, where properties are abstracted of the individual's subjectivity. Barquet condenses so particularly the operation on the set of works of art presented in the show Pautas, where he reveals the chromatic dissonance of memory..

Like a reflectent kaleidoscope, Omar Barquet’s body of work, to be exhibited in his first Miami show, projects chromatic abstractions of suggestive luminance nature, that when going into depths of a dark room bounces and shapes spectral volumes, resonant permanence of what was one presence.

Art installations by Japanese artist Michiyoshi Deguchi’s will be exhibited for the first time in Miami. Deguchi has been creating such artworks that lead the viewers make their own interpretations by many ways of expressions. His present works adopt acrylic domes, in which he places photos showing a process of drawings and the on-site scene of them as well as actual motifs.

Wulf Treu. Road to SamarraWulf’s work is at once sublimely childlike while simultaneously being profound and illuminating. There is a sense of joy and discovery and a complex back-story that drives each individual piece. Damien Whitmore, Head of Programs at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum says “The work is warm, perverse, innocent and dirty. It’s also very funny, even when it’s going for the jugular.”

“Wulf Treu does not fool around. His work is personal, brash, painterly, expressive and full of extraordinary energy...” So quotes Carol Damien the Curator of Miami’s Frost Museum about German Artist Wulf Treu.

101Gabriel Grün, Kiss of Judas, oil on wooden panel, 60 x 90 cm.
Gabriel Grün. CapriccioRecent oil paintings from the Buenos Aires based Argentinean painter. Approaching his work with a sense of its place in art history, Grün is very much a painter’s painter. Grinding his own pigments rather than finding them commercially, Grün seeks to establish a link between the current day and the age from which he draws his stylistic inspiration. Recalling Flemish masters Van Dyck and Rubens, Grün’s work typically sets nude figures against idyllic landscapes but with modern interpretations and representations of mythological and religious themes.

His figures are rendered with a classical sense of realism in their detail and are frequently featured in movement or contortion. And though Grün follows a pre-meditated and prescribed language from a compositional point of view, his work absolutely transcends any possible banality or cliché, as it is painted with ferocity, unafraid to approach the darker sides of the sources of its inspiration. As such, the work seems to dare the viewer, flaunting its ability to use a language anew, self-assured in its aesthetic harmony.

Jeff Pullen. New York: Illusion and RealityPullen shows his newest body of work capturing the architectural illusions and realities of New York's buildings and skyscrapers. Born and raised in New York, Pullen gets his inspiration from the flashy Broadway corridors, to the soaring skylines. Working a unique reality/illusion dynamic,Pullen paints New York images onto constructions of brick, wood, plastic, louver doors, car-hoods, etc. The images undulate across these constructed surfaces creating an energy and a tension that seems to says ' this is New York'.

Jeff Pullen's work is represented internationally in numerous private and corporate collections, including New York University's Washington Square Windows in 2008 and Broadway Windows in 2004.

Also on view the works of: Andy Warhol, Tolla, Marlene Rose, Brad Howe, Joerg Doering, Donald Sultan, Zammy Migdaland many others.

101JB Lazzarini, Oil on canvas, No title, 2010, 80 x 200

JB Lazzarini. MetamorfoseMiriam Fernandes Gallery and Luciana Junqueira are proud to present the artwork of JB Lazzarini from Brazil to Miami Design District for his first solo exhibition in the USA. Experience the joy he aims to exude in the series of artwork he entitles METAMORFOSE.

With strong contrast of colors and shapes, he wisely creates a sense of harmony among both geometric and organic notions. It’s ingenious the way he transforms flat canvas into broad poetic tales and converts nature into an eclectic, lively form of pop art.

101Hector Maldonado, Twisted or Locating the Last Strip, 2010, mixed media on canvas, 60 X 48 in.

Hector Maldonado. Blood & Toys II.
Three SeriesSince 2007, Héctor Maldonado has been working on various series from mixed media on canvas to construction/sculptures made from found objects. His work is a reflection on issues that are visceral and vital to him: God, family, home vs. house, childhood, language (communication), time, eternity, and levels of human existence; spiritual and physical.

The first series is Mi familia/ My Family, a mixed media on canvas series that deals with the relations between individuals and their immediate (familiar) habitat, exploring aspects that go beyond the physical.

Then Void Toys is a series of small scale construction/sculptures made of found objects.They are minuscule poetical and intimate scenarios where, the artist “opens the drawers” to his personal memoirs.

The third series Listen, deals with the use of children images as an excuse to reveal semantic images of profound content within an unidentifiable space, where visual and interpretation levels are touched.

(for Jose "Cheo"Feliciano),
2010,crylic, metallic and fluorescent acrylic on mdf,
18 x 18 in.
Color Climate: Matthew Deleget / David E. PetersonThe two-person exhibition will feature new abstract painting installations by Brooklyn artist Matthew Deleget and Atlanta artist David E. Peterson.

Matthew Deleget is a conceptual, reductive painter who will present an installation of new Shuffle paintings. Informed by the “shuffle” feature on his iPod, each painting consists of a checkered grid of four colors completely selected at random, producing visual results that vary widely.These series of paintings are directly inspired by the legendary salsa ensemble Fania All-Stars.  Each will pay homage to a specific musician in the group, including Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz and Ray Barretto, among others.

David E. Peterson makes rule-based paintings that are informed by high-end industrial design goods, including laptop computers, athletic shoes, men’s fashion, and Modern architecture. (More) The three new suites paintings present his investigation into the formal qualities and associated consumer aspirations of three specific lines of designer goods, including Nixon’s Newton watch collection, Asics’ Onitsuka Tiger line of sneakers, and wallets designed by Paul Smith.

Kanako Sasaki, Ambassador, from the Series Wanderlust

Until October 30
Kanako Sasaki. Wanderlust“. . .So we should cast off all gloomy thoughts about our earthy lot and enjoy the pleasures of snow, moon, flowers and autumn leaves and drinking wine; living our lives like a gourd bobbing buoyantly downstream. This is the floating world.”  From the novels of c. 1665, Ukiyo Monogatari, Tales of the Floating World.

In her series Wanderlust, Kanako Sasaki (Japan, 1976) explores her own imaginative world influenced by traditional Japanese novels, Ukiyo-e paintings and childhood memories. In this inspired state, distracted from reality but informed by recollection, she composes her own floating world. Within her surreal and eccentric settings, Sasaki’s characters, usually herself, evoke ideas of isolation, escape and uninhibited freedom.The juxtaposition of bleak emotion within a fantastical landscape leaves the viewer mesmerized with wonderment.  Sasaki’s work also comments on issues such as the female experience, loss of innocence, hopeless romance and how Japanese culture is viewed from the outside.

Carlos Cabeza. Rhythmic Paintings
Wynwood’s newest gallery boasts rotating exhibitions of world-renowned Latin American modern and contemporary artists .The opening solo exhibition, entitled Rhythmic Paintings, shows the dramatic work of Paris-based, Venezuelan contemporary artist Carlos Cabeza, Rhythmic Paintings is a series of works created by using a stream-of-conscious modality where Cabeza creates movement through curved, ebbless sequential patterns. The feminine form is prominent, as are vividly colored eyes that peer out through the thoughtful maze of strokes. The collection includes 15 works comprised of paintings, découpages and objects.

Owner and gallerist Oscar Ascanio, will host a celebratory opening and artist reception during the District’s Second Saturday Gallery Walk on September 11, at 7 p.m.

The show is a sort of new media festival on video art and digital photography, performance and installation art. The Deceptive Eye orients towards critical issues and ideological statements. Emergent voices coexist with established artists creating a sharp dialogue in between generations. A Posthumous Homage to Sara Modiano.
They project a critical regard towards a world in its most crucial stages. Sex, illnesses, aging, death, addiction, poverty, social class, identity, and gender, form the conceptual base for these decisive languages. Cynical aesthetic notions dominate in the show creating a new vortex of criticism and revolt. Sharp multivocal and polytonal voices of discomfort and opposition set force, shifting perspectives on the subjectivity and the ego; redesigning and subverting the frames of conventional relationships to culture. They do not interpret but rather shape and fashion a new comprehension of the world. As Susan Sontag once said on photography: "Photography today does not 'record' but critically 'intervenes' reality."

Carlos Estévez. Oblivion.
Carlos González. New Work. Project Room
Estévez continues to reflect on and reference Philosophy, Christian art, Baroque sculpture, sacred texts and poetry, and hybrid images of animal and human bodies. Nevertheless, the artist particularly focuses on the evolution of the everyday experience of life, and how the paths that have led us to where we are, are often paved by massacre and devastation. Carlos’ images breathe consciousness back into the psyche, making the viewer realize the history of disparaging traditions that run deep within the soul, self, and mind.Carlos González’s latest series continues to draw inspiration from nature. His pieces are advanced plant-like mechanism that morph into exploding pods. Like floating Dandelions, his sculptures give the sensation of ease and weightlessness, juxtaposing their strong metallic appearance. Gonzalez’s oeuvre reflects on the evolutionary processes of survival, highlighting the ingenuity of life on Earth.

Eduardo Sarmiento. Desire and Possibility.Paintings & Drawings.“My work is an evolving self-portrait, a song to personal tensions and obsessions. I grew up in a rural environment surrounded by animals. I attended school in Cienfuegos, Cuba with a concentration in sports. As I awakened to adolescence, all kinds of juggling and experimentation took place, including the sexual. My life changed profoundly as I discovered the feminine, the other, the great power it exerted over me.” ES (more)

“I paint obsessively, restlessly, feverishly, triggered by the torture of the creative impulse and the certainty that erotic stimulus generates multiple and varying reactions to be explored. I continue to search for concrete answers, I can only attest that every experience is a hallucinating battle.” ES.

Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Painting & PhotographySpector, Rytteke, and Ramanzini each use the figure as central to their work with decidedly different motives.  These three artists present us with a view of current concerns.  “Con-Figurations”exhibits three personal explorations using the human figure as central to the artist’s practice.  They treat the political, the spiritual, or the social in original and compelling ways.

The photographic work of Rytteke offers a unique handling of cultural attitudes towards body image, and includes an interactive installation in the gallery project room.  Ramanziniexhibits finely executed geometrics that make us reflect on societal need/want of all things ordered, elegant and stylized.  The works can be musical and poetic, as well as commentary, with an eye on patterns, consumerism, and branding.  Spector’slarge oil on paper pieces contain rich painterly figures placed center stage.  These works interpret and capture the sarcasm, humor and warmth she finds in the world around her.

JOURNEY: Magdalena Correa and Hiraki SawaA thematic exhibition featuring works by chilean photographer Magdalena Correa and japanese video artist Hiraki Sawa.  JOURNEY, an exhibition curated by Emilio Navarro, presents a group of works that refers to internal and external journeys, one trough video exploring the intimate and personal world and one through photography discovering the world that surround us.

Accustomed to living between cultures, Japanese born and UK based video artist Hiraki Sawa (b.1977) embraces the movement of people and the mutable notion of home as central themes in his work.   .

The images captured by Chilean born and Spain based artist Magdalena Correa (b.1968), during her journey to the Antarctica, have a common denominator that is present in all of them: the snow.   Giving continuity to her past projects, Correa explores another isolated territory, geographically far from us, where the extreme and harsh weather conditions determine the development of the region and the way its inhabitants interact with nature.

Alejandra padilla, Reformas

Alejandra Padilla. Reformas Charles Clary. Fermatic Pandemic. Project RoomAbout Padilla: “… There is much to celebrate in such a relationship, the gaze must follow erratic movements, causing perception to create the drawing.  One sees something seemingly specific, and then realizes that this is not the case, that is not what it was and moreover is nothing at all or many things, there are abstract elements, but they come from images that are not, or the abstraction creates recognizable images.  Appearance is one aspect, and it relates to a whole that simultaneously combines multiplicities.  There is accumulation as well as alteration.  The territory that establishes itself is deceiving.  The unique technique makes the art recognizable, both individually, and as a body of work..." Patricia Rizzo

In Clary’s words: “I use paper to create a world of fiction that challenges the viewer to suspend disbelief and venture into my fabricated reality. By layering paper I am able to build intriguing land formations that mimic viral colonies and concentric sound waves. These strange landmasses contaminate and infect the surfaces they inhabit transforming the space into something suitable for their gestation. Towers of paper and color jut into the viewer’s space inviting playful interactions between the viewer and this conceived world. These constructions question the notion of viral outbreaks, transforming it into something more playful and inviting.”

Johan Bjorkegren. Ingrid Eliasson. Jennifer Basile [morker]

Mörker signifies the gloomy darkness seen through a child’s dream, a nightmare perhaps. Set in a magical and mysterious Scandinavian forest inhabited by eerie mystical characters intricately depicted in charcoal and ink drawings by Swedish artist Johan Bjorkegren. The longing for comfort is not lost in the innocence of a child and the warm love of a mother. Artists Ingrid Eliasson and Jennifer Basile bring a calming effect from this lurid fantasy with the detailed structured graphite drawings, juxtaposed over the rich biomorphic backgrounds. The feeling of a “cozy home” is amplified by the crocheted fiber tapestries.

Arden Quin. Bolívar. Bay. Kosice. Llorens. Laañ. Rothfuss. Uricchio.
Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.

The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

Omar Barquet sheds the formal purism to move the geometry to an organic state, where properties are abstracted of the individual's subjectivity. Barquet condenses so particularly the operation on the set of works of art presented in the show Pautas, where he reveals the chromatic dissonance of memory..

Like a reflectent kaleidoscope, Omar Barquet’s body of work, to be exhibited in his first Miami show, projects chromatic abstractions of suggestive luminance nature, that when going into depths of a dark room bounces and shapes spectral volumes, resonant permanence of what was one presence.

Art installations by Japanese artist Michiyoshi Deguchi’s will be exhibited for the first time in Miami. Deguchi has been creating such artworks that lead the viewers make their own interpretations by many ways of expressions. His present works adopt acrylic domes, in which he places photos showing a process of drawings and the on-site scene of them as well as actual motifs.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero

"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Scott Ashley, A Soul, Guitar, Neon, Amplifier and Case, 65" x 72" x 60", dimensions variable

Scott Ashley. Possession
Pedro Vizcaino. GANG OF 4

Scott Ashley’s exhibition of mixed media installation works and sculpture explores ideas of material possession and ownership through the transformation of common everyday objects and materials.

Talent Possessed - The Guitar has been through a voodoo ceremony in which a soul was placed in the guitar by a voodoo priest. The guitar and amplifier are functional. This piece is about the current obsession with celebrity. It raises the question of talent being something one possesses naturally or if it is something that can be manufactured. It also plays into the desire that so many have of being a rock star, the desire to be famous and the lengths some will go to achieve it.

About Vizcaíno "......In 2009 Vizcaino began making paintings that he calls Gangueros. The news from the border with Mexico is not the only channel that tells us that violence is just around the corner. Or we may have already turned that corner. The gangs that control the drug trade out-gun the police, and not just in Mexico. The role that Miami plays as a port of entry to the United States of contraband of all kinds makes violence a vivid presence on its streets. And Miami traffic, with some of the craziest drivers drawn from all over the world, must be an image--- visual and aural--- for Vizcaino. In fact, these paintings screech, growl, and laugh in mockery...."

Aaron Morgan Brown. Arcana Du Jour
Caught between the Physical and Metaphysical, Morgan Brown goes beyond the narrative into Magic Realism.

Although Aaron Morgan Brown uses a narrative structure in his paintings, he denies being a “storyteller.” Brown considers his works as representations of “constructed dreaming,” using his own perception and memory to create alternative realities.

Brown’s works are reminiscent of photorealistic documentations of the mundane, but they go a step further, documenting the everyday of another reality. His paintings are technical representations of objects and environments that are easily recognizable, but not easily understood in their aggregate pictorial context.

Showing an interest in the subjective experience from an early age, it was only natural for him to gravitate toward the visual and performing arts. Brown uses his own experiences to create images of a reality that is not likely to exist.

JB Lazzarini. Metamorfose

Miriam Fernandes Gallery and Luciana Junqueira are proud to present the artwork of JB Lazzarini from Brazil to Miami Design District for his first solo exhibition in the USA. Experience the joy he aims to exude in the series of artwork he entitles METAMORFOSE.

With strong contrast of colors and shapes, he wisely creates a sense of harmony among both geometric and organic notions. It’s ingenious the way he transforms flat canvas into broad poetic tales and converts nature into an eclectic, lively form of pop art.

Mourlot Collection at Markowicz Fine Art

For several decades, vintage lithographic posters have become collectible works of art in their own right. Their place in art history is well established and documented. In fact, they are now found in most museum collections.

Mourlot was the most famous and prolific manufacturer of these images. Over is 150 year history, it produced thousands of these prints.

Artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Leger and Chagall, were intimately involved in the production of these works conceived as announcements for exhibitions, ads for tourism and as illustrations for political events.

Markowicz Fine Art is exhibiting the Mourlot collection at the gallery in the Miami Design District until January 10th.

Simon Hare. East of 95.
Curated by Mark T. Smith

“East of 95” is a photographic portrait study of people who live and work in Miami’s historic Buena Vista neighborhood. Well-recognized iconoclastic and commercial artist Mark T. Smithwill curate the exhibit.

At the opening reception on Saturday, September 11, Dr. Paul S. George Historian and Professor of History at Miami-Dade College, Wolfson Campus will briefly speak to guests about the historic Buena Vista and surrounding areas. Dr. George serves as Historian to the Historical Association of Southern Florida.

Simon Hare has lived in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Europe, Australia, Chicago and San Francisco, but it wasn't until he moved into Buena Vista East in 1997, that he was inspired to take pictures of the people around him. He was compelled by “a sky so blue it makes your eyes water, and people who overflow with color and texture. People’s emotions boil over here.” In a tiny neighborhood that is like a small town in the middle of the city, Simon has created portraits of an eccentric global family, of people who exude personality in a corner of the world that accepts them.

Known for his clean contemporary style, Simon Hare’s images are bathed in light and color. He comments, “I love to show the vitality and energy of my subject. I approach every project with the desire to visually communicate the beauty and style of each subject – wanting the viewer to be there.” Simon Hareis a respected commercial photographer in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.

“No interpretation needed here, everything is black and white and moves in line or blots. These ink drawings scavenge the tripes and guts of the formal vs. the philosophical. One can begin to see the connections between the need to decorate the world around and the recreation of a world, the private milieu of the artist. Landet is taking the strides, leaving us wondering whether just a little bit of sameness can produce a whole wave of change in the species.” – José Springer for FlashArt.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero

"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit

Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Madí
Arden Quin. Bolívar. Bay. Kosice. Llorens. Laañ. Rothfuss. Uricchio.
Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.

The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

Luis PerezSchroeder, Steel Redemption

George Schroeder. Steel Redemption

Inspired by the screeching-metal sounds of a salvage yard, San Antonio sculptor George Schroeder transforms the bangs and crashes into rough and tumble sculptures exhibiting in “Steel Redemption”.

Schroeder explains: "Working in the salvage yard is really loud,so you think about the noise,which generates all kinds of random images. My intention for this series was to create abstract forms derived from variety of sound experiences".

In his studio he has restored old metal-working machinery salvaged from various factories. Working with sheared or cut steel beams,Schroeder bends and Shapes them until the metal almost seems like a living thing. Curving in and out or appearing to fly off into space. Heavy marks and crude connections reflect the rough details of hand-forged metal.

Johan Bjorkegren. Ingrid Eliasson. Jennifer Basile [morker]

Mörker signifies the gloomy darkness seen through a child’s dream, a nightmare perhaps. Set in a magical and mysterious Scandinavian forest inhabited by eerie mystical characters intricately depicted in charcoal and ink drawings by Swedish artist Johan Bjorkegren. The longing for comfort is not lost in the innocence of a child and the warm love of a mother. Artists Ingrid Eliasson and Jennifer Basile bring a calming effect from this lurid fantasy with the detailed structured graphite drawings, juxtaposed over the rich biomorphic backgrounds. The feeling of a “cozy home” is amplified by the crocheted fiber tapestries.
Birds Are Nice. New CG Boutique

Birds Are Nice is a visual artists and graphic designer working in the Miami area. The decision to work anonymously as Birds Are Nice came from the artist wanting to have fun and make happy, urban work that references pop culture along with the comic and cartoon genres.

Omar Barquet. Pautas ( Rules)
Michiyoshi Deguchi. Inner Drawing. Project Room

Omar Barquet sheds the formal purism to move the geometry to an organic state, where properties are abstracted of the individual's subjectivity. Barquet condenses so particularly the operation on the set of works of art presented in the show Pautas, where he reveals the chromatic dissonance of memory..

Like a reflectent kaleidoscope, Omar Barquet’s body of work, to be exhibited in his first Miami show, projects chromatic abstractions of suggestive luminance nature, that when going into depths of a dark room bounces and shapes spectral volumes, resonant permanence of what was one presence.

Art installations by Japanese artist Michiyoshi Deguchi’s will be exhibited for the first time in Miami. Deguchi has been creating such artworks that lead the viewers make their own interpretations by many ways of expressions. His present works adopt acrylic domes, in which he places photos showing a process of drawings and the on-site scene of them as well as actual motifs.

Scott Ashley, A Soul, Guitar, Neon, Amplifier and Case, 65" x 72" x 60", dimensions variable

Scott Ashley. Possession
Pedro Vizcaino. GANG OF 4

Scott Ashley’s exhibition of mixed media installation works and sculpture explores ideas of material possession and ownership through the transformation of common everyday objects and materials.

Talent Possessed - The Guitar has been through a voodoo ceremony in which a soul was placed in the guitar by a voodoo priest. The guitar and amplifier are functional. This piece is about the current obsession with celebrity. It raises the question of talent being something one possesses naturally or if it is something that can be manufactured. It also plays into the desire that so many have of being a rock star, the desire to be famous and the lengths some will go to achieve it.

About Vizcaíno "......In 2009 Vizcaino began making paintings that he calls Gangueros. The news from the border with Mexico is not the only channel that tells us that violence is just around the corner. Or we may have already turned that corner. The gangs that control the drug trade out-gun the police, and not just in Mexico. The role that Miami plays as a port of entry to the United States of contraband of all kinds makes violence a vivid presence on its streets. And Miami traffic, with some of the craziest drivers drawn from all over the world, must be an image--- visual and aural--- for Vizcaino. In fact, these paintings screech, growl, and laugh in mockery...."

Aaron Morgan Brown. Arcana Du Jour
Caught between the Physical and Metaphysical, Morgan Brown goes beyond the narrative into Magic Realism.

Although Aaron Morgan Brown uses a narrative structure in his paintings, he denies being a “storyteller.” Brown considers his works as representations of “constructed dreaming,” using his own perception and memory to create alternative realities.

Brown’s works are reminiscent of photorealistic documentations of the mundane, but they go a step further, documenting the everyday of another reality. His paintings are technical representations of objects and environments that are easily recognizable, but not easily understood in their aggregate pictorial context.

Showing an interest in the subjective experience from an early age, it was only natural for him to gravitate toward the visual and performing arts. Brown uses his own experiences to create images of a reality that is not likely to exist.

With strong contrast of colors and shapes, he wisely creates a sense of harmony among both geometric and organic notions. It’s ingenious the way he transforms flat canvas into broad poetic tales and converts nature into an eclectic, lively form of pop art.

Mourlot Collection at Markowicz Fine Art

For several decades, vintage lithographic posters have become collectible works of art in their own right. Their place in art history is well established and documented. In fact, they are now found in most museum collections.

Mourlot was the most famous and prolific manufacturer of these images. Over is 150 year history, it produced thousands of these prints.

Artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Leger and Chagall, were intimately involved in the production of these works conceived as announcements for exhibitions, ads for tourism and as illustrations for political events.

Markowicz Fine Art is exhibiting the Mourlot collection at the gallery in the Miami Design District until January 10th.

For over 20 years, Art Nouveau has captured the hearts of collectors who appreciate and enjoy art. Since its creation, this gallery has undertaken de challenge of showcasing the most interesting proposals in the international scene, and has done so with sensitivity and courage.

It has become a reference for experts in Latin American art. It has also been a first home to some new artisits, whom time has chosen as a way to reward the remarkable vision of this gallery. For many, Art Nouveau represents avant-garde, but it is perhaps the sharp intuition to choose master pieces of contemporary art what best defines the profile of this gallery. They have understood that the eye makes the photography and that history and respect make tradition, but it is the heart that sets the guidelines in this business

Until November 19
Johan Bjorkegren. Ingrid Eliasson. Jennifer Basile [morker]

Mörker signifies the gloomy darkness seen through a child’s dream, a nightmare perhaps. Set in a magical and mysterious Scandinavian forest inhabited by eerie mystical characters intricately depicted in charcoal and ink drawings by Swedish artist Johan Björkegren. The longing for comfort is not lost in the innocence of a child and the warm love of a mother. Artists Ingrid Eliasson and Jennifer Basile bring a calming effect from this lurid fantasy with the detailed structured graphite drawings, juxtaposed over the rich biomorphic backgrounds. The feeling of a “cozy home” is amplified by the crocheted fiber tapestries.
Birds Are Nice. New CG Boutique

Birds Are Nice is a visual artists and graphic designer working in the Miami area. The decision to work anonymously as Birds Are Nice came from the artist wanting to have fun and make happy, urban work that references pop culture along with the comic and cartoon genres.

Arden Quin. Bolívar. Bay. Kosice. Llorens. Laañ. Rothfuss. Uricchio.
Eight artists that were part of the Madí group. Madí is a modern art movement known for bright colors and bold geometric forms. In architecture, sculpture and painting, Madí art uses abundant circles, waves, spheres, arches, spirals, and stripes. The word Madí may be originated in letters taken from the name Carmelo Arden Quin, the Uruguayan artist who founded the Madí movement in the 1940’s. Or perhaps the term comes from the English word mad, or from the Spanish description of the movement Movimiento Artístico de Invención.

The focal point of the Madí movement was a break within the figurative tradition. Some of the most original innovations of this movement were the concepts of invention as an aesthetic artistic method and the irregular or trimmed frame. The leimotiv od the Madí was to break the representation line in art in favor of the idea of presenting the work of art as an object itself, showing its own elements without any further reference to reality.

Omar Barquet, Out of Doors, Mixed Media on paper

Until November 11
Omar Barquet. Pautas ( Rules)
Michiyoshi Deguchi. Inner Drawing. Project Room

Omar Barquet sheds the formal purism to move the geometry to an organic state, where properties are abstracted of the individual's subjectivity. Barquet condenses so particularly the operation on the set of works of art presented in the show Pautas, where he reveals the chromatic dissonance of memory..

Like a reflectent kaleidoscope, Omar Barquet’s body of work, to be exhibited in his first Miami show, projects chromatic abstractions of suggestive luminance nature, that when going into depths of a dark room bounces and shapes spectral volumes, resonant permanence of what was one presence.

Art installations by Japanese artist Michiyoshi Deguchi’s will be exhibited for the first time in Miami. Deguchi has been creating such artworks that lead the viewers make their own interpretations by many ways of expressions. His present works adopt acrylic domes, in which he places photos showing a process of drawings and the on-site scene of them as well as actual motifs.

Wulf Treu. Road to Samarra

Wulf’s work is at once sublimely childlike while simultaneously being profound and illuminating. There is a sense of joy and discovery and a complex back-story that drives each individual piece. Damien Whitmore, Head of Programs at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum says “The work is warm, perverse, innocent and dirty. It’s also very funny, even when it’s going for the jugular.”

“Wulf Treu does not fool around. His work is personal, brash, painterly, expressive and full of extraordinary energy...” So quotes Carol Damien the Curator of Miami’s Frost Museum about German Artist Wulf Treu.

101Gabriel Grün, Kiss of Judas, oil on wooden panel, 60 x 90 cm.
Gabriel Grün. Capriccio

Recent oil paintings from the Buenos Aires based Argentinean painter. Approaching his work with a sense of its place in art history, Grün is very much a painter’s painter. Grinding his own pigments rather than finding them commercially, Grün seeks to establish a link between the current day and the age from which he draws his stylistic inspiration. Recalling Flemish masters Van Dyck and Rubens, Grün’s work typically sets nude figures against idyllic landscapes but with modern interpretations and representations of mythological and religious themes.

His figures are rendered with a classical sense of realism in their detail and are frequently featured in movement or contortion. And though Grün follows a pre-meditated and prescribed language from a compositional point of view, his work absolutely transcends any possible banality or cliché, as it is painted with ferocity, unafraid to approach the darker sides of the sources of its inspiration. As such, the work seems to dare the viewer, flaunting its ability to use a language anew, self-assured in its aesthetic harmony.

Born and raised in New York, Pullen gets his inspiration from the flashy Broadway corridors, to the soaring skylines. Working a unique reality/illusion dynamic,Pullen paints New York images onto constructions of brick, wood, plastic, louver doors, car-hoods, etc. The images undulate across these constructed surfaces creating an energy and a tension that seems to says ' this is New York'.

Jeff Pullen's work is represented internationally in numerous private and corporate collections, including New York University's Washington Square Windows in 2008 and Broadway Windows in 2004.

Hector Maldonado. Blood & Toys II.
Three Series

Since 2007, Héctor Maldonado has been working on various series from mixed media on canvas to construction/sculptures made from found objects. His work is a reflection on issues that are visceral and vital to him: God, family, home vs. house, childhood, language (communication), time, eternity, and levels of human existence; spiritual and physical.

The first series is Mi familia/ My Family, a mixed media on canvas series that deals with the relations between individuals and their immediate (familiar) habitat, exploring aspects that go beyond the physical.

Then Void Toys is a series of small scale construction/sculptures made of found objects.They are minuscule poetical and intimate scenarios where, the artist “opens the drawers” to his personal memoirs.

The third series Listen, deals with the use of children images as an excuse to reveal semantic images of profound content within an unidentifiable space, where visual and interpretation levels are touched.

Installation and assemblages by Kyle and John Torina painting shown in one view of “Vistas: Landscapes Interpreted”

Wulf Barsch, Arless Day, Josephine Haden, Kyle, Richard Lytle, John Torina ConcernAbout Florida’s Environment Highlighted in ‘Vistas: Landscapes Interpreted’ Show

As developments in the Deepwater Horizon Well catastrophe continue to remind us of the fragility of our environment, an exhibition of landscapes that includes visual references to the ongoing assault on Florida’s scant remaining pristine forests and mangroves seems particularly relevant.

In her review of “Vistas: Landscapes Interpreted” at ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries, art critic Janet Batet notes that “nowadays this subject matter stands as a metaphor for social and political inquiry, fertile ground for debating our positions on the preservation and future of our planet.”Highlights of the exhibition include large-scale assemblages and an installation by Kyle, fantasy landscapes by Josephine Haden, winner of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 2008-09 Fellowship; “cosmic imagery” of Wulf Barsch, combining Egyptian and Islamic references with geometrical and astrological elements; American Impressionist landscapes by plein air painter John Torina; collages by Arless Day, whose works create a place in time like a movie director building a set; and Richard Lytle, whose paintings were included in the legendary “Sixteen Americans” exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art.

Fanny Sanin, Acrilico No. 4, 2009, 44 x 42 in.

Ramírez Villamizar and Fanny Sanín Discipline in Painting and Sculpture /
La Disciplina en Pintura y EsculturaAbout Concrete Abstract Art

“It is not uninteresting to see how the luxuriant nature of the American continent, its intense baroque style and its magical realism have engendered a movement as rigorous as that of concrete abstract art. The asceticism of this artistic tendency seems to contradict the eloquence characteristic of everything American which manifested itself since the florid times of the chroniclers, passing through modernism until the present day. Nevertheless, that is how it has been. In Uruguay and Argentina, where the “Madí” movement was born; in Venezuela, where cybernetics and optical art came into their own; in Brazil, mother country of concrete poetry; or in Colombia, where the abstraction represented by EduardoRamírez Villamizar and Fanny Sanín, among others, has flourished….” Carlos Luis

Wendy Wood, Florida Cracker Cowboy on Cracker Horse with Cracker Cow

GroveHouse Artist
Featured Artist for June: Wendy Wood

“What I want from viewers of my paintings is for you to look closely into my art and imagine what is going on within its four corners. Look deep. Ask yourself what is happening? What can you feel from my use of colors, textures, background, sky and earth? Where is the motion taking you?

You will realize that a little bit of me is inside each of my paintings, looking out at you; as you are looking into my world. The wonderful thing is that I am a painter of all my times and therefore I am a goddess creating my own world. To paint on canvas is to create an everlasting wonderful power over a specific world on a canvas.” W.W.

Humberto Castro, Butterfly, Oil on Canvas, 2010, 44 x 58 in.
Humberto Castro. Traces of Migration

In his third solo exhibition by Cuban emigré Humberto Castro, he explores again the visual metaphors or fables based on the concept of historic immigration as the foundation for today’s society.

“Like a poet, Castro imbues his images with lyrical nuances without diminishing their impact” wrote in his catalogue essayJorge H. Santis, Curator of Collections at the Fort Lauderdale Museum and the curator of its 2000-01 one-person exhibition of Castro’s works from Paris.

Like works in the previous shows, First 15-Year Retrospective in Nov. 2006 and Contemporary Fables in 2008, Castro’s new paintings include references to the exodus of Cuban“balseros” and the U.S. “wet foot-dry foot” policy of allowing Cubans to stay if they can reach land.

Javier Valle Pérez. Connotation in Abstraction

"The word connotation refers to things or attributes that the word brings to mind, any idea or notion suggested or associated with the word. I named this exhibition Connotation in Abstraction because my work contains the same characteristics: iconographies and undefined forms that suggest something familiar; little abstract figures wanting to be or become something we can relate to. The pictorial language I use is the kind of abstraction that can be understood or recognized. Taking as a point of reference objects such as toys, planes, animals and machines, I tap into my imagination to bring to life miniature worlds of make belief”.

Zach Sawan. Pretty Girls
Recent Works.

RDZ Fine Art introduces the much celebrated work of artist Zach Sawan with his "Pretty Girls" series: "These paintings of girls whom I know represent a deep infatuation as well as woeful acceptance of what will never be. These young women are unflinchingly beautiful; they never take a bad picture, they are full of vim and because of a variety of circumstances we will remain nothing more than friends at best. I have attempted to communicate the implicit emotions by creating portraits that are unflattering as well as slightly disturbing. Their beauty has been skewed but not altogether hidden, for they should be celebrated for their splendor, yet I cannot ignore my grievances. These are the first of an ever-growing collection of my "pretty girls." - Z. Sawan.

Ramirez Villamizar, Aerolito # 2, hierro oxidado, 67 x 36 x 36 cm, 1992-R.

Ramírez Villamizar and Fanny Sanín Discipline in Painting and Sculpture /
La Disciplina en Pintura y EsculturaAbout Concrete Abstract Art

“It is not uninteresting to see how the luxuriant nature of the American continent, its intense baroque style and its magical realism have engendered a movement as rigorous as that of concrete abstract art. The asceticism of this artistic tendency seems to contradict the eloquence characteristic of everything American which manifested itself since the florid times of the chroniclers, passing through modernism until the present day. Nevertheless, that is how it has been. In Uruguay and Argentina, where the “Madí” movement was born; in Venezuela, where cybernetics and optical art came into their own; in Brazil, mother country of concrete poetry; or in Colombia, where the abstraction represented by EduardoRamírez Villamizar and Fanny Sanín, among others, has flourished….” Carlos Luis

Explore the Culture of Nature

Nomade is paying homage to the natural environment we live in through artwork depicting the raw and abstract allure and aggression of animals, plants and peoples.

Nomade will also have a suggested $10 donation box in place, in addition to beverages provided. All donations will go to Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, the official foundation administering the oil spill clean-up.

The artists interpreting the culture of the natural world are Miami natives Danny Catania and Samuel Gualitieri, New World alumni Reinier Gamboa and Juan Travieso, as well as Norwegian photographer Stian Roenning, Dominican photographer Aida Tejada and French sculptor Pierre Traversat.
