David Castillo Gallery is proud to present All Inclusive!, a solo show by Melvin Martinez. Martinez paints with oil, acrylic, silk flowers, plastic gemstones, glitter, yarn, and the detritus of a post-apocalyptic Hobby Lobby. The artist applies swatches of glossy magazines with the torque of a pallet knife. He layers paint like fondant until it catches pompons. Martinez interrogates the rhetoric of painting. In turn, the artist interrogates that of sculpture, collage, performance, and decoration... [more]

Posted 9/18/13

The Revelation of Great: Jerome Soimaud The qualities of a great artist, I suppose, are always up for discussion in the art world. For intellectuals, a great work might be one that elevates the mind or translates an idea. For those who covet the superficial, the captivation of the eye does the trick. Maybe an artist or academician would analyze the work for technical skill: the balance of the composition, manipulation of materials and process, and its maker’s use of color and line, before...

Dina Mitrani, along with potential clients, reflected in the mirrored surface of a daguerrotype by photographer Curtis Wehrfritz. The daguerreotype is created when a positive image is imprinted directly on its silvered surface; Photo by Seanica Howe. Recently I had an artist, a very successful sculptor actually, sit me down and explain to me the loss of the ability to "do" in our society. Do you know how to make your grandmother's best meal? I don't either, but in the house in... [more]

Occasionally we are given a glimpse into the artist as mere mortal.  The same men and women who produce art that is sold for millions at auction and are discussed and dissected for hours by scholars and the common man do, indeed, walk among us; and “From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler” is proof.   The most admired and glorified modern and contemporary artists are also jewelers.  Who knew?  And this small, yet impressive, exhibition is a precious reminder that art need not take on static ob...

Bill Viola at Museum of Contemporary Art - North Miami (MOCA NOMI) December 5th, 2012 - March 3rd, 2013
Posted 3/12/13

Bill Viola’s “Liber Insularum” is, in a word, powerful.  It brings to mind the transcendental power of Ann Hamilton’s recent Park Avenue Armory show, “The Event of a Thread,” where billowy white curtains coupled with pulley supported swings worked in concert with the monotonous readings of philosophical and spiritual prose.  Here, instead of integrating the viewer into a strange world created through participatory installation, Viola uses digital media as a tool to directly communicate with and ev...
