Commenoz Gallery, located in The Galeria shopping center at 328 Crandon Boulevard, suite 218, invites residents to its new exhibition, “Getting to Know You,” which features the latest artworks by gallery artists Carolina Baron-Biza, Arrington Magny and Santiago Medina. The exhibition will on display during the month of September.
Baron-Biza, from Argentina, showcases acrylic paintings on canvas that are described by the gallery as ethereal, light and airy.
“The artist shows that she can execute large canvases that are full of movement. The two black and white acrylics on canvas in a 40-by-60-inch format with white pieces in different sizes that could represent paper, cloth or leaves make us wonder if they are suspended on air or if they are being displaced by the wind someplace else, in that middle of the night background,” according to information from the gallery.
American artist Arrington, who lived for some time on Key Biscayne and now lives and works in Paris, is displaying vibrant, unique work dedicated to the island.
“The paintings show loose renderings of boats, navigational markers, regattas, the Rickenbacker bridge,” Commenoz officials note. “In creating the pieces, she explains that her mind was filled with notions of displacement and connection. ‘Genus Loci’ denotes the Roman concept of the ‘spirit of place,’ and in this painting the red signifies the heat as well as the strong Latin presence in this culturally diverse paradise.”
Medina showcases sculpture in polished stainless steel.
According to the gallery, “His highly polished and mostly abstract sculptures continue to impress because of their beauty and also the difficulty in achieving the result. He had a very successful exhibition at Pinecrest Gardens, Miami-Dade County, that spanned from October 2016 to April 2017, where he exhibited his monumental pieces with LED lighting which at night provided shades of reds and blues.”
Commenoz also invites residents to mark their calendars for October 5, when the new exhibition with Argentinean artist Eugenio Cuttica, “The Dimension of No Time,” opens.
