Maria Cristina Carbonell, An Idyllic World, Video.
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

Sergio Garcia

Self, Symbols & The Spirit. Sergio Garcia, Evelyn Valdirio, Nicolas Leiva, Lili(ana), Mariano Costa Peuser and Emilio Adan
Often working on parallel themes and approaching ideas from common view point, the artists will present works with an uncommon synergy showing paintings, photography, sculptures and installation. 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. These works address the identity of humanity by the use of the Self, Symbols and The Spirit, as metaphors.

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.

Robert Mazerolle. Attraction
Canadian sculptor, Robert Mazerolle first solo show in Miami. The subject is female breasts: “those semiotic symbols all things desirable, yet hidden from view. Displayed, yet covered. Symbolic, yet functional. Stimulators of interest or disinterest; of anxiety and comfort; of danger and amusement”.

Ena Marrero. Sheer Lithium
This installation where the main elements are briquettes, embodies the objective to the subjective…ideas, facts, memory, perception and sensation to a ‘meta-body of forms and dimension.

Sculpture. Featuring BAC Resident and Associate Artists
The Bakehouse Art Complex's fourth installment of this series focuses solely on the medium of sculpture.

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.

Sticky & Sweet. Eurydice, Carl Pascuzzi, Diane Arrieta, Jonathan Stein, Alexis Rodriguez-Duarte and Spunk and The Orange Kittens

The unveiling of the exhibit, which explicitly explores sexual freedom, expression and all related taboos – a-la-Madonna – will be celebrated with an opening reception featuring beats byDJ Johnny the Boy and complimentary cocktails.

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.

On view April 10 – May 4
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.
