Recent works of Armando Romero and Carlos Jorge

Tuesday, Feb 19, 2019 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

Cocktail Opening Reception: Saturday, February 16th from 7:00pm – 10:00pm.

Dot Fiftyone Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Mexican artists Armando Romero and Carlos Jorge. This marks the artists’ first exhibition together in the U.S., where Armando Romero presents his series of paintings titled “Charles IV of Spain and His Family,” and Carlos Jorge his series “Bardas.”

Show more >>

The work of Armando Romero employs various visual elements to create universes that juxtapose images inspired by the classic master painters with pop culture and graffiti.Through this multiplicity of languages, Romero creates surreal scenes in which characters from classic culture coexist with cartoon characters. Irreverent humor sets the tone for a self-imagined narrative of the spectator, generating new stories and a renewed emotional connection with the classic works.

For this show, Romero is inspired by Goya’s painting Charles IV of Spain and His Family(1800-1801).He recomposes scenes from the original work and patches them up into large canvases full of perverse humor. As philosopher Juan Heiblum describes: “He’s ingenious and generates a series of paintings that alter and upset the old and the classical. When confronting these paintings, we’re witnessing hundreds of years of iconography being shown on a single plane. He introduces us to this new work where Carlos IV of Spain and His Familyfunctions as a bridge through which decals as well as clippings, old as well as new images, academic as well as popular themes circulate”.

The paintings by Carlos Jorge show the poetic solidity of the walls, in which the stone is the protagonist. Jorge builds a series of spaces and territories that move between the gaps and the silences of the line. This is the magic that this work achieves; building high walls that let us go through, building strong frailties.

As Juan Heiblum states: “Carlos Jorge draws and comes up with those poetic frontiers, fighting against all this cruelty. Concrete walls are being laid down, keeping countries apart, but the real walls transcend all political implications and open a door for you to cross. There are intensities and ways of life that cannot be restricted by concrete walls and, therefore, they freely move through the open space. The great triad is established in this way: the stone becomes a wall, and the wall becomes a poetic territory.”

Armando Romero (b. 1964, Mexico City) studied at the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado "La Esmeralda", in Mexico City. From 1991 to 1997, Romero taught sculpture, painting and art history at La Esmeralda. Additionally, from 1991 to 1993, Romero taught art history, design, and drawing at the College Center for Studies in Science and Communications in Mexico City, and also in 2002 taught painting at the School for Visual Arts in Michoacán, Mexico. In 1998, Romero represented Mexico in the Emerging Artists of Latin America exhibition at the Passage de Retz gallery in Paris, France, and in 2001 he lectured on sculpture and participated in the International Studio Program of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts in the United States. He lives and works in Mexico City.

Carlos Jorge (b. 1970, Mérida-Yucatán) is a Mexican artist known for his large-scale paintings with exuberant colors, and pale and translucent shades. His repertory of symbolic and conceptual pictorial elements is composed of lines and deceivingly waving bodies that come to be fused in partial and infinite links that defy the void. He studied at the International School of Art in Umbria, Italy. Since 1992, he has been participating in diverse collective exhibition projects. He has had solo exhibitions in Mexico and the U.S. since 1993. In 1997, he was awarded an Honorable Mention at the Seventh Biennial of Visual Arts in Mérida, Yucatán. His works are part of private and public collections, such as the Museum of the City of Mérida, Yucatán, in Mexico. He lives and works between Mérida and Miami.

Paolo Pivi: Art with a View

Tuesday, Feb 19, 2019 various times - English

Paola Pivi's artistic practice is diverse and enigmatic. Her oeuvre appears to have been formed through multiple creative minds. Art with a view at The Bass presents new work by the artist, as well as Pivi's anthropomorphic, feather-covered polar bears; canvases of cascading pearls; video showing fish in flight on a passenger jet; and an 80-piece mattress installation. Each piece poses questions and is defined by its openness to interpretation, through the appropriation of cultural symbols.

Without Labels

Tuesday, Feb 19, 2019 at 10:00 AM - English

The Historic Ali Cultural Arts is proud to present Without Labels, an exhibition exploring views of identity and cultural perception. The exhibition features the photographs of Jamie Robertson and works on paper by Shawna Moulton and runs from February 15-April 12, 2019.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 15, 6-8pm, artist talk 7pm.

"We are delighted to showcase the works of these talented artists, who through their research and art answer their own questions about identity and cultural perception," said curator Juliana Forero.

"As each artist peels away different cultural labels to discover their own identities, they invite the viewer to take that same journey of reflection and exploration."Jamie Robertson's Making Reference is an ongoing photographic series of self-portraits influenced by representations of Black Women in art history and popular culture. Ethnographic photographs from the Caribbean, South America and North America along with paintings from those regions serve as reference points for Robertson's self-portraits.

"Using my body and adornments such as gold hoop earrings, eyeliner and orchids, I explore my perceived identity and question how I see myself versus how others see me," said Robertson.

"This series allows me to explore the history of Black Women in the Americas and how they were seen while simultaneously allowing me the agency of self-representation to confront perceptions of my own identity."Shawna Moulton creates delicate works made from paper she makes herself, which she then embellishes with water colors and ink drawings. Moulton, who teaches the ancient art of papermaking at workshops throughout South Florida, also creates sculptures from paper, including life-size masks which depict both distinct and indistinct facial features."I create what I feel is truly important " me as my pure self," said Moulton.

"Who am I without a name, race, gender or any given label? It's like picturing a color you have never seen but know it exists."

A Celebration of Contemporary Graphic Artworks by International Women Artists.

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is delighted to announce their newest exhibition, “Engraved”.

Forty European and Latin American female artists from Argentina, Austria, Ecuador and Venezuela will present some of their most representative pieces. The exhibition runs January 11-April 5, 2019 and is free and open to the public.

“We kick-off our celebration of International Women’s Month a little early in order to provide ample time to showcase this important exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Director of the Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department. “We are honored to once again be partnering with Maria Napoles of the Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP) on another outstanding project, and we are delighted that Maria has introduced us to Professor Natalia Giacchetta and the impressive works of these talented female artists.”

“Engraved” features artists from different regions of the world who develop their artistic work through techniques such as lithography (printing or calcareous stone), printmaking (engraving in metal or wood), digital drawing and graphics, using mostly paper as a noble support of the representative depth of the images. The artworks will be exhibited following diverse techniques that highlight their individuality: with frames, without frames, as installations, and within showcases generating a climate of strength and subtleties. This demonstrates the virtues and characteristics of each individual work but, as a whole provides the viewer with an intense and harmonious journey into the world of each of these artists.

Empowered Women at BaCA

Bailey Contemporary Arts Presents a Solo Exhibition by Florencia Clement de Grandprey. Her Empowered Women Series Portrays Strong, Elegant and Proud Ladies.

  • Artist Talk: March 23, 2pm | FREE

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) begins the celebration Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day a little early with a dramatic and colorful solo exhibition by Florencia Clement de Grandprey. The local artist has dedicated much of her career to projecting positive and inspiring images of women. This exhibition will be on view in the West Gallery/Blooming Bean Coffee Roaster from February 1-March 30, 2019.

“A large portion of my artwork is dedicated to projecting a positive and inspiring image of women by portraying strong, elegant and proud ladies. My series of Empowered Women began in 2014 and continues today,” said Grandprey. “This collection includes a tribute to all the amazing mothers who fight to bring up physically and emotionally healthy children, to confident women who are comfortable with their bodies, to natural beauties proud of their heritage, and to those of us who are different and don’t necessarily “fit” in to societal standards. You will find my contribution is uplifting and empowering, sometimes a little daring, but always tasteful.” Born and raised in southern Spain, Florencia is the daughter of an American mother and a French/Italian father. Now living in Pompano Beach, the self-taught mixed media artist’s mission is to empower and inspire through positive and meaningful artwork.

“We are delighted to be showcasing Florencia’s work,” explained curator Juliana Forero. “This is an exhibition where visitors will be embraced by images of strong women. Most of the images are facing the viewer directly with an inviting gaze, almost like a playful challenge to sustain it. Florencia’s background as a professional makeup artist, adds a dramatic beauty to each piece, while simultaneously celebrating her subjects as ‘perfectly imperfect beings.’’’

Grandprey produces mixed media paintings by incorporating, up-cycling and repurposing materials that would otherwise be disposed of such as discontinued fabric and paper samples. The myriad of colors, textures, and mesmerizing patterns found in these samples inspires her choice of materials and reveals her main techniques: the first is painting on canvas with materials added to a painted figure; the second is painted directly on upholstery fabric, where the pattern of the fabric becomes intertwined with the image.

“When I paint, I’m painting as much for myself as for others, because I know there is a lot of pain and suffering that needs healing in every single one of us. I am in every one of my paintings, and hope that others can recognize themselves in at least one of them too, and so, as I heal myself, maybe, just maybe, I can ease someone else’s pain as well,” stated Grandprey.
