The Nightmare – Exhibition of Works by Artist Pedro Vizcaino

 November 30, 2013 – February 2, 2014
 
Art@Work
1245 Galloway Road (87th Avenue)
Miami, FL 33174
 
The exhibit features dirty drawings from the series La pesadilla where, as the artist states, figures in the style of underground comics are howling asphyxiated by a chaotic and stressful world.  Rabbit-headed figures, fallen angels, monsters with bulging eyes, buildings shaped like syringes stand out.  A world of nightmares, dirty comics, acid drawings and human-rabbits are screaming in search of an exit.  The city is squashing and smothering the human-rabbit. A dirty expressionism is marked by underground comics drawings and the mixture of charcoal with yellow ink.

Eduardo Sarmiento at the Snite Museum of Art

 

The Snite Museum of Art on the University of Notre Dame has just added to its permanent collection two drawings by Sarmiento: the diptych “Through the Eyes of Desire”.

“The interest in theatrical images and spaces found throughout Latin American art of the last hundred years emerges in his work in a renewed way…  Figurative painter of consummate skill, Sarmiento explores complex emotional states…”
- Ricardo Pau-Llosa
Fragment from the essay: Yearning & Desire. Recent works on paper.

Waltman Ortega Fine Art to Exhibit Works by Jorge Enrique During the Art Basel Week

November 9 – December 10, 2013

 

Waltman Ortega’s White Room
2233 N.W. 2nd Ave.
Miami, FL 33127

 

Waltman Ortega Fine Art gallery presents “Hybrid”, a solo exhibition of recent works by Jorge Enrique (USA/b. Cuba).

Tearing down the veil of the urban culture is Jorge Enrique’s leitmotiv. The Cuban-American artist resembles the contrasted city which has been inspiring him for over a decade – Miami – a true gateway of the Americas. For him, it is all about capturing the urban tension and then rendering his own recomposed vision. Considering himself a multimedia artist, he often blurs the lines between painting, sculpture, print-making and photography.
