miArte Gallery. From Feb 1st through Mar 28th, 2008. miArte Gallery is currently showing Paper and Fiber, an eclectic collection of works on paper and fiber by Miami-based artists MANO, Aurora Molina, George Rodez and Luis Enrique Torres. These artists delve into paths of abstraction and expressionism using multidisciplinary techniques to create narratives of love and attachment.
MANO fills his paintings with intense color and texture, drawing on his background as an engineer he uses paper and fiber to create mutations of technology that indulge in romantic imagery. Aurora Molina’s fiber art revives the centuries-old craft of stitching and embroidery into the mainstream of contemporary art. Her work conveys powerful metaphors of life and love that belie her youth. Rodez’s erotic works on paper allude to sexual tension and suggestion, however the artists says "it is purely unintentional and created from a deep unconscious level…" Torres’s work is richly saturated with organic substance and color conveying a powerful silence that challenges the viewer to connect time and space.
miArte Gallery is located at 85 Merrick Way, one block north of Miracle Mile and west of Douglas Road. Off-street metered parking is available and a municipal covered parking garage is located directly across the street from miArte gallery.
