“compositions with two, three, or five figures emerge. An avalanche of amateurs and dissidents encourages the traditional schools to innovate”
-Frantz Fanon (The Wretched of the Earth)
concrete jungle: narrative of presence is a group exhibition focusing on economy of material as a form of contextualizing the narrative of the quotidian landscape. Accessible materials;
plaster, concrete, wood, cardboard, textiles and other reclaimed ephemera capture the visual poetics of each artists idiosyncratic interpretation of the world around us.
Exhibit include South Florida artist Adrienne Chadwick’s numerous fragile and intimate ceramic dwellings. Meditating on community, resources and accessibility. Late Miami/New York artist, Duane Hanson’s rare Polaroid highlighting the value in the “everyday” individual. South Florida artist, Ralph Provisero’s expansive geometric earth works speak to our contemporary situation not limited to Florida’s changing landscape. Los Angeles based artist, Sofia Cordova’s, no relation to the curator, reclaimed syncretic pillars whose codes intersect the known and unknown.. lo sagrado. Equally, Karen Rifas and Robert McKnight’s sculptures ground the secular and spiritual shadowsof our own presence.
