These are works that are meaningful and impactful and not fitting into the aforementioned categories. Wood sculpture, fiber, assemblage, etc.
Thomas Erben Gallery
Thomas Erben's booth at Art Basel Miami Beach stands as a retrospective, offering a glimpse into the gallery's dynamic vision over the past 25 years. The exhibition presents works by various artists, each contributing to the gallery's diverse artistic positions.
Among the featured artists are:
1. Adrian Piper: A conceptual artist renowned for her insightful explorations of race, gender, and identity.
2. Senga Nengudi: A performance artist and sculptor who delves into the intersections of the body and space.
3. Mike Cloud: A painter who employs quilting and collage techniques to craft abstract works.
4. Dona Nelson: A painter who ventures into the realms of color, form, and texture in her artistic exploration.
5. Harriet Korman: A painter who utilizes crayon and gesso to create captivating abstract paintings.
This collective showcase underscores Thomas Erben Gallery's commitment to representing a wide spectrum of artistic voices and perspectives throughout its significant artistic journey.
Shinji Nanzuka, a distinguished Japanese art dealer, has been a key figure in elevating Japanese art on the global stage. His impact is particularly notable for his role in championing young artists who push creative boundaries. In 1991, Nanzuka founded his first gallery in Tokyo, a pivotal initiative that helped revitalize the presence of Japanese art in the international art scene. His unwavering commitment to supporting creativity and innovation has positioned him as an inspiring figure for aspiring artists, contributing significantly to the promotion and recognition of Japanese contemporary art on a global scale.
Vaughn Spann @ David Castillo
Contemporary art enthusiasts should not overlook Vaughn Spann's work, which, in my opinion, places him among the top 5 contemporary artists. I picture Vaughn Spann's art gracing the walls of Bobby Axelrod's opulent Hamptons home from the TV show Billions— that's the level of artistic allure we're talking about. Spann's minimalistic, colorful, and impactful style is both accessible and profound.
In a realm where consistent excellence is uncommon, Spann stands out as an exception. As a self-taught artist, he consistently produces high-quality pieces that explore themes giving voice to traditionally marginalized individuals. Anticipation surrounds his future bodies of work, with excitement building to see if he can maintain his exceptional artistic excellence.
