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, 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.

Until January 10
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.

Luis PerezArnaldo Anaya-Lucca,
Adam & Eve

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.

On view until January 10, 2010
Jordan Doner. Claudio Ethos. David Michael Bowers.
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
