\n

< em>We are pleased to announce that JoAnne Artman Gallery has been selected as an exhibitor at the 8th edition of Red Dot Art Fair Miami\, c oncurrent with Art Basel Miami Beach\, located in the prime Wynwood Art Dis trict. We will be showcasing works by artists Alberto Murillo\, America Mar tin\, Anja Van Herle\, Annie Vought\, \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \;

\n

Anthony Hunter\, Marjorie Stri der\, Pedro Bonnin\, Robert Mars and Stallman.

\n

 \;

\n

Our booth will be a collaborative effort in bringi ng the abstract and figurative arts together while showcasing the artistic influences of pop culture. Alberto Murillo's art is strong\, soulful\, and colorful showcasing the juxtaposition of order found within chaos. Colombia n American artist America Martin&rsquo\;s bold lines and vibrant color pale tte found within her Native American series are reflective of Andy Warhol. The Native American paintings were inspired by her visit to the enormous Po w-Wow in Taos\, New Mexico. \; The series portrays a visual story of th e people who come together to celebrate\, to commemorate and to remember.\n

 \;

\n

Belgian Artist Anja Van Herle's figurative paintings are inspired by both classic and contemporary fashion while exploring issu es of identity\, emotion and human interrelationships.  \;Annie Vought an artist based in Oakland\, California. Vought finds inspiration in both t he organic world and the built environment\, imbuing her cut paper pieces w ith a richly woven series of patterns\, lines\, and words that recall the c haotic experience of contemporary life. While there is an intimate quality to each of these artists&rsquo\; work\, the universality of their themes al low them to resonate with many.

\n

 \;

\n

The arresting palet tes and vigorous compositions of British artist Anthony Hunter allow for wo rks that are both emotionally powerful and visually captivating. Hunter\, w ho has been immersed in the art world as an art fabricator for Damien Hirst \, dazzles viewers with his contemporary twist on abstract expressionism. M arjorie Strider emerged on the New York Art Scene in the 1960&rsquo\;s. Str ider&rsquo\;s three-dimensional paintings and soft-sculpture installations place the techniques of Minimalism within the Pop Art movement. Inspired by images of p in-up girls\, Strider&rsquo\;s paintings carved from wood\, foam\, and uret hane placed her Pop culture subjects within a medium-centered realm.

\n< p> \;

\n

Figurative artist Pedro Bonnin approaches his subjects in a highly skillful\, photorealistic manner. Bonnin is remarkable for his de ft handling of oil paint\, but what further distinguishes him is his rare a bility to create moods. His darkly comic figures frequently border on the a bsurd. Robert Mars&rsquo\; artwork chronicles an evolving fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture celebrating the icons of the 195 0&rsquo\;s and 60&rsquo\;s by taking inspiration from this culture long pas t. By using symbols from mass media culture &ndash\;whether the flag\, clas sic film stars\, or logos of popular brands &ndash\; Mars both critiques ou r culture&rsquo\;s fascination with celebrity and consumerism\, while indul ging his own nostalgia for America&rsquo\;s golden age of advertising. Deep ly influenced by Pop Art\, Mars appropriates vintage ephemera into striking new forms that invite the viewer to question their own relationship to the se symbols.

\n

 \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; \;

\n

The Pacific Northwest duo Stallman\, Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman\, partners in art and life\, are pioneering an inno vative technique using canvas and paint as sculpture\, taking a traditional medium and turning it on its head giving canvas the leading role. They scu lpt in separate locations within the piece simultaneously\, then switch pla ces and respond to each other&rsquo\;s movements creating a dynamic dialog within the composition. This union of minds dissolves the boundaries of pos sibility turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. We feel this is a str ong representation of contemporary works by a varied group of artists...tha t go "POP".

\n

 \;

\n< p align="center">These artists will inspire\, provoke\, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing\, peek behind the st ories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression!

\n

In the heart of Miami Downtown\, just a few Metromover stops a way from the new Pé\;rez Art Museum Miami (PAMM)\, Miami River Art Fa ir reflects the urban landscape of Miami and responds to the city's rapid g rowth as a cultural destination.

\n

 \;

\n

The art fair\, as US States&rsquo\;s ce lebrated art exchange with high internationalization degree\, will be grand ly held from December 4-7 at Downtown Miami Convention Center. Established in 2012\, it has been successfully founded by the Director and Curator Nina Torres\, who not only bridged the gap between worldwide and Miami\, public and art\, but also shaped a paradigm for the domestic art fairs during Art Basel Week.

The juried show is an important event for all collectors and art lovers providing an i ntimate look at some of the most emerging artists of the international cont emporary art movement. A lifelong fascination with painting and installatio n and its symbolic richness shapes the work of Manuela Cimmino. Her artwork s were selected by the Jury Committee to display at Miami River Art Fair &n bsp\;this year. About her aesthetic concept Manuela Cimmino explains:

\n

"I am de lighetd that my works were selected and represented by Nina Torres Fine Art . My artwork with the title &ldquo\;Tangle&rdquo\; is inspired by a ball of thread which collects the tangled line of our existence. When the bundle r esolves\, the light of our emotions takes over. It is an eco-friendly   \;piece of art\, made up of metalwork and plastic industrial scraps. The wo rk includes a lighting of low power consumption LED based. Another artwork that relates also to our emotions\, the ups and downs of life\, is finalize d in &ldquo\;Ladder&rdquo\;. It is my intention \; to symbolize the pro pellant power of energy\, pointed on heaven above. Everybody could climb on \, but when you want to reach the unknowable\, only few people could go on. The walk becomes to open to infinity\, riding over the limits.&rdquo\;

\n

Manuel a Cimmino was born in Milan (Italy) and studied Fashion Design at the Acade my of Milan. The process of creation is essential to understand the concept of Manuela Cimmino. Reviewing her artistic career she mentions:

\n

&ldquo\;I stu died to be a fashion designer\, and became fond of drawing. I still have do zens of my watercolors cards.
I leaf through them every now and then\, reme mbering the passion and stamina those sketches gave me: the thrill of creat ion\, the tension of the execution and the final astonishment.&rdquo\;

 \;&ldquo\;All sensations that I feel even today\, after so many year s and so many life&rsquo\;s turning points.
I went through the world of com munication\, working for many years on radio and tv\, discovering in the en d that my personal communication tool was actually what I could create with my own hands. Today I model plaster\, I recover industrial metal\, I pour the cement\, I turn on the light\, and sometimes\, I still grasp my old bru sh. Life is a chain of surprising emotions. When emotions hit others\, pass ing through you\, a new\, contagious\, breath of life blaze up.&rdquo\;

Some of this year&rsquo\;s highlights includes the artwork s by Joshua Smith. On focus are his recent oil on canvas series which invit es art lovers at Collectors&rsquo\; Preview to discuss \; about it.

\n

Claude Monet\, father of French Impressionism\, \;once so famously said\, &ldquo\;Light is the principal person in the picture.&rdquo\; However\, if you view Josh ua Smith&rsquo\;s paintings\, then you see that he \; strove over and o ver again to encapsulate the way that light danced over the Viaduct in his works &ldquo\;The Muse&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;Forgiveness&rdquo\; or the water reflections in &ldquo\;The Golden State&rdquo\; as well as all the differe nt atmospheres and weathers in his series.

 \;A lifelong fasciation with pai nting shapes the work of Joshua Smith\, who gratuated at the Hartford Art S chool\, University of Hartford\, West Hartford\, CT in Painting (2002-2004 MFA) and holds a BFA at Laguna College of Art and Design\, LCAD Laguna Beac h\, CA (1996-2000).

\n

The US American master of oil painting Joshua Smith translates his imagination on to canvas . Through the medium of painting\, Smith developed his own language which s peaks of fantasy and nature\, blending surrealism into the physical world\, with playful imagery and fragments of playful subject matters. His paintin gs on canvas often presents landscapes with chairs\, birds\, butterflys and clouds\, an imaginaire world where beings are either dreaming or existing in a parallel world\, a virtual universe in which dreams and reality fuse.< /span>

Forgiveness\, Oil on Canvas\, 50 x 50 inches

\ n

 \;

\ n

Joshua Smith reminisces the childhood expe riences\, where we fantasize our surroundings\, where the sky is the limit. In this sense Smith&rsquo\;s work is like a journey through some unknown m etaphysical reality\, in belief of the omnipotence of the (day) dream. As i f to emphasize the landscapes\, birds and butterflys extreme sensitivity\, the colors are overlaying like powder. These colors remain in delicate\, nu anced and atmospheric style. The paintings&rsquo\; dense\, fragile surfaces and areas of multichromatic richness recall to ancient wall frescos. Take your seat. Welcome the muse.
