Emanuele Cacciatore. From Oct 10th through Nov 12th, 2009.

Emanuele Cacciatore creates paintings without relying solely on conventional formal painterly composition, contemporary ideology, or intuition. The paintings are nonrepresentational and sometimes abstract images both documenting and realizing of the act of painting itself. 

Brush strokes and the realization of form in the paintings are constructed or found by deliberately manipulating mechanical, accidental, and intentional shape, color, and pictorial space.   Stencils, masks and various traditional and non-traditional methods of paint application and paint removal are used and manipulated to complete the paintings.  The work is comprised of a combination of three or four canvases that either support similarities or contrast differences through the diverse painting methods.

While the process of making and the materiality of the paint are evident in the paintings, the artwork is by no means simply about process. The use of both traditional and experimental painting methods gives the artist the freedom to create with unlimited possibility. Combining these methods allows Cacciatore to question and enrich preconceived notions of gestural painting.  His desire, therefore, is to make paintings that stand on their own as artwork resulting in a totality in which the paintings are both the most real and the most sublime that our world can show us.

Emanuele Cacciatore has exhibited his work extensively both in Europe and the United States. Past exhibitions include the Asyl Gallery and Lannon Gallery in New York City; the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York; Seton Hall University School of Law in Newark, New Jersey; The Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, New Jersey; the Jan Baum Gallery in Los Angeles, California; and the Galerie Maurice Gabriel François in Paris, France. His paintings have been exhibited in many art fairs, including Scope Miami, Scope NYC, and Red Dot Art Fairs.  He is also the recipient of many awards, including the Armand Hammer Award in Visual Arts from the Los Angeles Arts Council.

Debra Holt. From Mar 14 through May 6th, 2009.  Abba Fine Art. Miami Art GalleriesDebra Holt’s recent series "ZOE" are panoramic photographs that deceive the eye and transform perception in an illusionistic process. The artist imposes an approach to water or skylines by using a photogram technique; she shoots many consecutive photos per second obtaining the same scene many times but with slightest and imperceptible changes. Holt ironically and purposely recreates the Warhol like process of repetition where the subject goes into reverberation and disappearance. (more…)

Memories of Eden. From May 10th through Jun 11th, 2008.Abba Fine Art. Miami Art GalleriesTony Caltabiano, a Southern California artist, focuses on the wilderness that tenuously exists beyond the reach of stucco and wire. Not only does the artist focus on panoramic landscapes, but frequently returns to the same local hills dotted with twisted oaks and wind swept indigenous grasses. What he encounters is a land at war within itself. Native species fighting for survival against introduced species. (more…)
