Guerra de la Paz at Praxis International Art - Miami November 12th, 2011 - December 31st, 2011

    Abstract America: New Paintings and Sculpture is not for me, but I have to admit that the Saatchi Gallery’s done a phenomenal job gathering up artwork by the biggest and brightest in contemporary American abstract artists.  As this was my first visit to Saatchi’s swanky digs in Chelsea, I must also mention that the gallery is phenomenal – perhaps even the best venue for viewing art that I’ve ever come across.  Many of the works in the exhibition seemed too clever for my taste, but the...
