2016 OCT - ARTE DE LA DIVERSIDAD MUNDIAL EN MUSTRA COLECTIVA QUE PRESENTA COMMENOZ GALLERY

YALE EPSTEIN

DAVID HAYES

JOAQUIN GONZALEZ

Con una propuesta altamente atractiva por la calidad de las obras y la diversidad de trabajos de los artistas, esta abierta al publico la muestra “Alquimia” en la Galeria Commenoz en Key Biscayne.

Se trata de una muestra colectiva de excepción en la que participan Bia Betancourt (Brazil), Yale Epstein (USA), Joaquin Gonzalez (Cuba), David Hayes (USA), Yukio Imamura (Japan), Santiago Medina (Colombia), Fabio Mesa (Colombia), Jordi Prat Pons (Spain) y Albert Popa (USA).

 

Betancourt presenta sus esculturas inspiradas en ciclistas en tanto que Medina expone las suyas sobre la naturaleza y una reflexion sobre lo que nos rodea.

En Epstein podemos observar la fusión de fotografía y pintura que producen imagen llenas de color y energía, mientras que Gonzalez lleva a viajar por el Amazonas peruano, que explora para mostarnos las profundidades de la jungla en ese mundo distinto.

En la obra del japonés Imamura, se observa una pintura surrealista que refleja la ficción y la cruda realidad social.

 

Jordi PRAT PONS, que ha expuesto en la Galeria Commenoz desde los inicios en 1991, David HAYES (1931-2013) recordado por sus monumentales esculturas en el Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim y el Mussee des Arts Decoratifs de Paris, entre otros, y Fabio MESA, con sus pinturas sobre migracion de los pueblos completan la muestra, junto a Albert Popa uno de los iniciadores del arte del graffitti.

YUKIO IMAMURA

“Alchemy – A Taste of the Art World” – A collective exhibition with artists Bia Betancourt (Brazil), Yale Epstein (USA), Joaquin Gonzalez (Cuba), David Hayes (USA), Yukio Imamura (Japan), Santiago Medina (Colombia), Fabio Mesa (Colombia), Jordi Prat Pons (Spain) and Albert Popa (USA).

 

Sculptor Bia BETANCOURT works her sculptures with wire, exploring a theme that we are very familiar with: cyclists. You can sense that those figures are going full speed, they are on a course and each one wants to be the first to get to the finish line.

 

Santiago MEDINA executes super glossy stainless steel sculptures of a more abstract and geometric nature showing us a distorted reflection of what they capture around them. His monumental sculptures will be shown at Pinecrest Tropical Gardens starting in November 2016 Through March 2017

 

In his new series, Yale EPSTEIN employs his photographs of trees, manipulating the image by inserting other photos of previous paintings that he is done, fusing and using them as the background for the trees, producing a final image that is full of color and energy

 

Joaquin GONZALEZ continues to work in the series about the Peruvian Amazon where he has traveled many times and where he immerses himself with nature and then he offers us these paintings that show us a different world, filled with imaginary creatures and characters and with a color palette that makes us travel to that jungle.

 

David HAYES (1931-2013) is best remembered for his monumental sculptures. On exhibition at Commenoz Gallery are the maquettes: smaller pieces made with cut steel. His sculptures are in a number of important collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim, The Detroit Institute of Art, and the Mussee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, among others. The most recent exhibition of his work was held at the Lowe Museum of the University of Miami during the Summer 2016.

 

Yukio IMAMURA is a Japanese born artist who lives and works between France and Japan since 1977. Always using a very colorful palette, his canvases are surrealistic, showing us worlds in the borderline between comic strips and social commentary.

 

Fabio MESA, paints large canvases that explore the migration of people, giving the paintings in this series very poetic titles such as “Dreamers under a Cloud of Hope”, “Dreamers coming out of the Dark”, “Dreamers of our Time” you can see many people walking, coming and going, breaking walls, jumping walls…….It makes you think about the world we live in today.

 

Jordi PRAT PONS, has been showing his work since 1991 at Commenoz Gallery. These large canvases of “Las Meninas” 6 ft x 6 ft (200 x 200 cms), a tribute to the Spanish artist Velazquez, show us his mastery with collage, very colorful, big and provocative, a new take on classic works that makes us look at the paintings from a very different point of view.

 

For Albert POPA it is the first time showing at the Gallery. A graffiti writer during the late 70’s when graffiti was in its early stages in NYC, he was known as Conan. As he explains ” the paintings are a dialogue between two parties divided by time, space and mental disposition. It is a juxtaposition of old and new imagery, ideas and fashion. There is a theme in every painting which is suggested in the title ” such as in “Muse on The Run” the oil & spray paint artwork shown.

2016 JUL - TUSCANY-INSPIRED STAINLESS STEEL SCULPTURE OF SANTIAGO MEDINA

INYBNP - I'M NOT YOUR BORING NEWSPAPER

 

View the sculptures of Colombian artist Santiago Medina, now on display at Commenoz Gallery. These stainless steel sculptures mirror everything that is around them, due to their curves and ondulations which are extremely polished. This effect modifies our reality and what we see are reflections that are distorted, a new reality.

 

All the sculptures are made of Italian stainless steel that the artist imports from Milan and Lugaso.

 

The artist's work is part of many important collections including Harvard University, Stanford University, Florida International University and locally at Miami Country Day School.
