The paintings of Jenny Brillhart have always been somewhat deceptive. While she incorporates collage and generally works within what could be called an architectural landscape, her works really are still life pieces. Quiet, contemplative places that evoke a light and a time of day reminiscent the classic versions. Granted, there are no bowls of fruit […]

“You Make Me Sick: I Love You” couldn’t be a better title for the solo show opening up at Spinello Projects from Antonia Wright. Primarily a performance and video artist, Wright’s work is gripping, disturbing, humorous, emotional and at a level that few Miami artists have reached. Whether the work attracts you or somewhat repels, […]

The window at the back of this one gallery in the new Perez Art Museum Miami serves as a portal to the best of the city. From this perch you can see Biscayne Bay, all the boats and ships that have brought people and goods to this tip of the peninsula for ages, the causeway […]

One of the main spaces in the large, two-story Zadok Gallery in Wynwood almost looks like a house of bee hives. Columns of black specs seem to buzz from ceiling to floor. It’s a magnificent sight. The installation is, in fact, made from charcoal pieces hung on almost invisible nylon strings that are attached from […]

It’s rare that art in a main space gallery have any real relationship with works in a project room — often, in fact, they are meant to be examples of different disciplines and different styles. And although the works of Christy Gast and Felice Grodin may not seem on the surface to have a lot in […]

The creation of shared space necessitated laws, and moral codes, so that large groups of people could get along together, unlike the ancient world of their nomadic cousins. But starting in the late 19th century, the idea of the metropolis took on new meaning, as both a hyper-modern […]

One of the large sculptures from New York-based Colby Bird is disarmingly fragile. The gentle, serpentine-like piece made from wood holds a real green apple and a lemon within its curves, and several hand-crafted fruits. It appears to be propped up by a single, slim metal rod. It’s also made from pieces from Thonet café […]

There is a simply lovely exhibit called “Human, so human” that feels both futuristic and also is an homage to early 20th-century Russian and German avant garde art at the Farside Gallery. It’s a solo show from Angela Valella, an artist, curator and this year’s winner of the Cintas Foundation grant, a well-deserved recognition for […]

It’s hard to believe that the Pérez Art Museum Miami has now been open about three months, but it’s clear it didn’t take the crowds that long to discover it. The gleaming museum-palace on the bay is filled with people on a daily basis, including cloudless, sunny Miami winter Sundays. What a joy to see. Hopefully, […]

It’s really impossible to appreciate the work of London-based Sam Winston by looking at images online; they are too subtle and monochromatic to translate to the screen, and even though they incorporate text, they are hard to describe in print. So it’s important to make the trip to Alejandra von Hartz gallery to physically view […]
