Lives &amp; works in Mexico City.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A young artist that reflects on a fundamental act in the art: the look. By diverse media he explores the dialogue betweenmaterials of natural origin as graphite and wood, that serves as a technique to speak of what is human from subjective codes in his relation with the media and with the multiplicity of the points of view of the spectator.&nbsp;&nbsp;He integrates elements from his personal mythology and from nature as testimonial symbols of contemporary society. The work is an exploration of the interactions between techniques and formats that includes drawing, painting, stage resources, installation, animation, video-art and video-installation. He puts the spectator in a vigilant position before his will of contemplation. He has been selected in the official selection of the Biennial Tamayo 2006, in the Scholarship young Creators of the FONCA 2007 and in the residence Artist in Residence at 18th,&nbsp;Street Art Center Los Angeles in 2008.</p> </div> Sun, 27 Jul 2014 15:24:19 +0000 Michael Gellatly, Yomarie Silva-O’Neal, Vickie Pierre - Deering Estate at Cutler - August 8th - September 26th <p style="text-align: justify;">The Deering Estate at Cutler welcomes Alumni Artists in Residence, Vickie Pierre from 2009-2010, Yomarie Silva-O&rsquo;Neal from 2010-2011, and Project Residency Artist Michael Gellatly from 2013-2014, for a Season Culmination Exhibit featuring experimental, mixed media, and site-specific work.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Exhibit Evenings:</strong>&nbsp;Deering Estate at Cutler offers complimentary exhibit viewing nights, highlighting a variety of contemporary, historic, and visiting exhibitions inside the historic homes.

Clover - YEELEN GALLERY - September 13th - November 1st <p class="Body1">Yeelen will be exhibiting the American artist and consummate academician James B. Clover this September. Opening reception with the artist will be on September 13<sup>th</sup> 2014; marking the artist's first solo exhibition in the U.S. in over 25 years.</p> <p class="Body1">Clover&rsquo;s work is an Alexander Calder mobile and jazz-infused Piet Mondrian wrapped into one.&nbsp;&nbsp; He has taken the best of Modern painting and sculpture and collectively created a style of his own that only a great artist and academician can. Paul Gauguin&rsquo;s rejection of colonial life and gravitation towards nature are present.&nbsp; Wassily Kandinsky&rsquo;s musical inflections seep in. Even Constantin Brancusi's witty aptitude for geometry is channeled.</p> <p class="Body1">His latest series of work---deviating from the minimalist sculptures of which he is better known---use basic iconography and scales of color to harken back to creation. Repetitive forms dance across the surface of his compositions like those in a carnival or ones seen in brief flashes of mystically woven child-like dreams.&nbsp;</p> <p class="Body1">&nbsp;Seanica Howe</p> <p class="Body1">&nbsp;</p> <p class="Body1">&nbsp;</p> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 19:23:31 +0000
