Jane Manus shares a vision to create new and dynamic spaces with abstract\, yet solid form. The exhibitio n at the Armory art Center will feature six of her large-scale works placed \, as they are meant to be seen\, in the outdoor sculpture garden. Though c oncrete and heavy in themselves\, Manus's sculptures are artfully connected planes of line and geometric shape\, joined as to invoke a complex\, shift ing array of transparent spaces and paradoxically unsubstantial solid forms . Her work actively engages her audience\, as the shapes and spaces form an d reform as the viewer moves closer to them\, further away and around them. While seemingly at odds with their setting\, Manus's sculptures are meant to be seen in the ever changing conditions of nature. her work forms a rela tionship with the play of shadow and the passage of time.

\n

Nina’s inspiration deriv es from social clichés attached to women and female behavior in general. De fined as a new media contemporary artist and a “pluralized woman” by French critic Frederic Charles Baitinger\, Nina attempts to evoke through her wor k\, women’s role in the XXI century.

\n

“Tipping Point” is her fourth solo show. This body of work is made up of ph otographs\, sculptural objects and fixtures of golden tones that attempt to convey a statement on the balance between being\, feeling\, thinking and d oing that we all desire to achieve.

David Castillo Gallery is proud to present Far From Apple Hill\, new photography by Francie Bishop Good for the artist's second solo show with the gallery.

\n

 

\n

Far From Apple Hill reveals far as a relative term. To experience Bi shop Good's large-scale\, digital photographs is to fall between antipodes- - cut through the center of the Earth on the straightest path between diame trical opposites-- slip from memory to lived experience. The artist compres ses place and time like folding a map\, making visible an expired wind in t he shape of trees or the passion in muscle memory.

\n

You can't go home again\, cautions Thomas Wolf. Bishop Good r eaches impossibly toward her distant past in Apple Hill\, Pennsylvania from her present South Florida\, itself a transient region shaped by pirates\, political refugees\, and seasonal tourists. The resulting images draw from these varied locations\; familiar bodies and strangers\; specific cultures and diasporas\; reconstruction and autopoiesis. Bishop Good's photographs a re monuments to Walter Benjamin's notion of memory not as "an instrument fo r exploring the past\, but rather a medium."

\n

Bishop Good depicts the place and time of the other\, who\, as in f olklore\, is also a familiar. Bishop Good sets upon the world with a keen vision\, filtering the darkness of time and place-- moment and memory -- sign and signifier so that the vulnerability of early childhood\, the bo som of a landscape\, or the trauma of a torn umbrella is yours\, and you can recognize it\, suddenly\, as clear as a photograph. Bishop Good's work resonates exponentially at the roots of collective memory. Far From Apple Hill is inspired and troubled by memory in hyperreality\, both p ainfully removed and staggeringly intimate.

Carol Jazzar is pleased to pre sent Reigning Men\, a solo exhibit by Miami artist David Rohn. This will be Rohn's fourth exhibition at the gallery.

Miami-based artist Da vid Rohn will present a series of 12 self-portraits of male types distilled from performance. The soldier\, the country guy and the money manager\, am ong other identifiable types\, are explored in the context of traditional ' male' markers such as power and dominance. For Rohn\, "facial expression an d body language are arguably more basic\, more telling\, than spoken langua ge." He maintains that the expanded definition of femininity that began in 1960s and '70s is incomplete until an equivalent of what we consider mascul ine has also taken place. Some of his characterizations reveal less apparen t aspects of male-ness\, such as vulnerability and weakness\, as they are e xhibited in varied social and professional roles.

Rohn has inha bited many roles\, some subtle\, some exaggerated\, many offering sly comme ntaries on art world characters. Most recently\, he received "calls" from a nd conversed with viewers at Scope-NY during the Armory week and Scope-Miam i during ArtBasel/Miami Beach in December 2012 as Walt Whitman\, inhabiting a wood crate with fish-eye lenses revealing an elaborate 19th century stil l-life interior. An interest in mise-en-scéne and period costume has been a focus for Rohn\, in his installations\, performances\, videos and still ph otographs exhibited previously at the gallery and elsewhere. "Using still p hotography to capture a moment of performance reveals what can be masked - and lost - in moving images. This continues to challenge me as much as the prospect of bringing to life invented characters\, which are always an acut e response to social and personal experiences."

ADAMAR FINE ARTS BRNGS TO MIAM I A HISTORIC EXHIBITION OF OVER 30 WORKS OF LEGENDARY CONTEMPORARY ARTIST A LEX KATZ

We are proud to host an important exhibition of orign al works and screenprints by the ledgendary contemporay artist\, Alex Katz. Alex Katz (born Brooklyn\, New York\, 1927) is one of the most important a nd respected living American artists with a career that spans over six deca des. "Face to Face" brings together original paintings and prints from seve ral decades of the over 60 years of the artist's career.

Katz' s bold paintings are defined by their flatness of color and form\, their de ceptively simple use of line and their cool but seductive emotional detachm ent. Using categories\, such as\, portraiture\, land and seascape\, figure studies and flowers\, many of Katz's works picture an everyday America in t imes of leisure and recreation. A recurring subject is Katz's wife and muse Ada\, whose iconic image has appeared in his work since the 1950s.
< br /> Influenced as much by style\, film\, poetry and music as by art histo ry\, Katz works in the tradition of European and American artists like Edua rd Manet\, Henri Matisse and Edward Hopper. He began exhibiting in the 1950 s\, when Abstract Expressionism was the dominant movement in American art l ed by figures such as Jackson Pollock\, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning. Katz admired these artists but rather than follow in their wake\, he instea d developed a contemporary figurative language combining the enlarged scale of American abstract painting with the bright colors and graphic style of advertising billboards. An influential precursor to Pop Art in the 1960s\, Katz has famously said\, 'I wanted to make paintings you could hang up in T imes Square'.

\n

Alex Katz has exhibited widely all over the world. His work has been the subject of many major sol o exhibitions and is included in the permanent collections of over 100 impo rtant museums worldwide\, including The Museum of Modern Art The Metropolit an Museum of Art\, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in new York\; The Smithsonian Institute\, Washington\, D.C.\; Carnegie Museum of Art\, Pitts burgh\; The Art Institute\, Chicago\; The Tate Gallery\, London\; the Centr e Georges Pompidou\, Paris\; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia\, Ma drid\; Metropolitan Museum of Art\, Tokyo\, and the Nationalgalerie\, Berli n\, to name a few.

BFI presents T. Elliot Mans a
To celebrate the wonderful news that Miami based artist T. Elli ot Mansa was accepted into the prestigious Yale painting MFA program\, the BFI #BigFutureInitiative is hosting an exhibition of his newest work.

Please note\, this is a fundraising exhibition: All profits from e very sale of Mansa's Artwork will go directly to help fund Mansa's expenses while at YALE. We want Mansa to thrive!

\n

Mansa\, born in Miami\, is a product of Miami-Dade's magnet programs. H ome was a very different place than school. At home in the early 80's he wa tched as his stepfather grappled with crack addiction. In school Mansa bega n to navigate the dichotomy of these two worlds. He began to use Art as a p lace to question these contradictions around him. Though he graduated from the esteemed New World School of the Arts\, Mansa still had to avoid the ev er-present temptations of gangs and drugs. Despite watching a number of his friends dabble in the drug trade\, some even falling to gun violence along the way\, the temptation to follow in this illicit life path for Mansa was real.

After battling depression following the death of his mo ther\, Mansa again looked to painting. He explored auto-biographical tropes in his Mother/Son series. Logically\, Mansa began to explore his relations hip with his father in his work. It seemed painting was becoming his saving grace. Looking at his own life Mansa saw that through Art he had been able to accomplish more than his peers around him\; namely\, he had managed to graduate college and avoid the label of felon\, two things his siblings had been unable to achieve.

As Mansa questioned the relationship s between Sons and Fathers and ideas behind the worship of 'the hustler' in hip-hop's urban culture\, he was able to draw closer to his brothers and f ather. This was a fleeting joy. Unfortunately on Easter Sunday\, Mansa woul d lose his father to cancer as well. Mansa received his notice of acceptanc e to Yale the night before his father's funeral.

T. Eliott Man sa will be exhibiting recent portraits that bridge the gaps between sociolo gical and autobiographical narratives\, mixed with elements from the mythol ogies of the West African Yoruba cosmology. The figures painted in acrylic\ , often of family and friends\, emerge in rich details from graphite washes . These young men\, brothers\, uncles and father(s) of the artist\, are all convicted felons. The paintings portray the subjects\, often African-Ameri can men\, both in urban settings and as African deities\, or Orishas\, usin g the metaphor of possession to examine the role of hero-worship in Mansa's subjects' socialization.
