Carol Jazzar Gallery is pleased to present Breakdown\, a solo exhibition by Miami artist Robert Huff.  This will be Huff’s fi rst exhibition at the gallery and will feature a series of small abstract d rawings and sculptural works.

\n

\n

These recent works were inspired by Huff’s time in the Appalachian Mountains and his ex ploration of the coal regions of southwestern Virginia\, West Virginia and eastern Kentucky.

\n

\n

In this landscape the dra ma of the environmental battle of the region is sobering. Coal companies ar e digging deep into mountains with slight regard for human life\, literally decapitating mountain ranges and effectively destroying the majesty of the ancient mountains\, forests\, streams\, wildlife habitat\, and entire comm unities. His work reflects his fascination with the push and pull of natura l and man-made structures in the visual environment.

\n

\n

The pieces are also reflective of Huff’s on-going love affair wit h materials\, intricate visual riffs and architectural structures.
