Upon my arrival to Miami I have been surrounded by art, friends, sun, and fortunous opportunity. A friend we happened to run in to while walking gave us two tickets to The VIP Preview of MIAMI PROJECT on dec. 3, from 4:30-10:00. The art was fresh, contemporary, compelling, and very thought provoking.
Amongst my favorites were the works by Halim Al Karim. He is represented by Rodischon Gallery, Denver Co. The works are Lambda print on Dibond Aluminum. The prints are amorphous human entities that glow and shift. The ghostly imagery is hard on the eyes and mind, which long to focus, wipe away the haze and see the person hiding in the midst. The colors are vibrant demanding the viewer pause and look, beckoning further dissection into the artist's reasoning.
I can understand why MIAMI PROJECT was "heralded as best fair by the Miami New Times Last Year." It's exciting and refreshing to view quality works in an intimate setting.
