Carmelo Niño. Recent Works

"His radically figurative paintings, makes us rethink about something that with the passing o time sometimes we forget: the human figure still possess a seductive capacity for the arts. It all consists in using it in the way an artist such as Carmelo Niño knows how to do. The magic realism which stands out in his group of characters is the link which unites them in the space. But at the same time its persistence in obtaining a pictoric efficiency gives a utopia element to his work. By this I mean that his panting goes beyond what is dictated by current fashions and goes beyond a different dimension, from which the artist confronts that frivolity in which art has recently fallen.".

Daniel Viñoly.Mandalas

Photos & Video Installation

The term Mandala (from the Sanskrit: “that carries the essence”, or “support for the spirit”) refers to the circle-in-a-square powder paintings made by Tibetan Monks depicting the universe. The fragile mandala paintings are, in the eye of their creators, not works of art in-themselves but tools meant to create a space for meditation, tools for experience. Through the contemplation of these images, the viewers might connect with their inner truths.

In a similar way, the works presented at the Americas Collection are tools meant to create a space for experience. Each piece presents a set of images and texts, all of them signs that might originate from residuals left of a past experience or events that might not be immediately identifiable. These symbols offer the viewer a chance to engage in a process of remembrance, a game of artificial reconstruction or re-invention of a personal memory. Like the Mandalas, the light- boxes are not self-contained aesthetic events, but constructions made to provoke an intimate interaction with the observer. The artwork ultimately fulfills its purpose the moment he or she starts making up stories while looking at them.

Art Talk: at 8 pm on Friday October 2nd. art critic Carlos Luis will give a talk on his personal interpretation on Viñoly’s work.

Klara Chavarría. Recent Works

In recent years, her work has gained immense notoriety & her work is in collections throughout the United States, Latin America and Europe, including a public collection piece exhibited at the Museum of Science and Industry and at O'Hare International Airport, both in Chicago, IL. The award winning artist’s work is recognized for her philosophical and whimsical style, which incorporates figurative and abstract elements transcending into creating an eclectic and spiritually filled body of work.

“My work reflects a deep interest in our human condition, our yearnings and a search for a true purpose in life. I want to make the invisible visible and the intangible tangible. In my work I want to capture our soul, our experiences, relationships, deep emotions, feelings and how these influence our existence. I am interested in the inner and the spiritual aspects of our lives and how it is all connected to our physical world.”Artist Statement

Renato Meziat, White Curtains and Orchids, Oil on Canvas, 2009; 47 x 35 1/2 in.

Renato Meziat. Recent Works
Renato Meziat
was born in Rio de Janairo in 1952. In 1978 and 1979, his work was chosen for display at the prestigious I Sala National de Artes Plasticas. Then in 1980, his solo exhibition graced the halls of the Galleria Ipanema in his native city.

ranks among the top notch realist contemporary painters, influenced by the works of Chileans masterClaudio Bravo. Well cultured, attentive observer of the different "realities" that surrounded him, skilled in the handling of shades and colors, self-taught, who was born to paint, he searches in art the means to becoming a man of the 21st century.

Meziat shows us his work with remarkable simplicity and elegance. Never academic, his compositions are always well balanced and sophisticated. His paintings are in private collections throughout North and South America and Europe. His works have also been sold very successfully at several auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's, Latin American Art in New York City. .

Five Abstract Visions:
Michelle Concepcion, Aaron Karp, Florian Depenthal, Andy Moses and Linda Touby

Five Abstract Visions, a fascinating view of how accomplished mid-career artists approach abstraction in very different ways.

“Each of these artists have been exhibited in museums and are included in some of the nation’s most important collections,” said gallery owner and director Virginia Miller. “Each has spent years perfecting a highly personal technique and offers a unique visual statement.”

Michelle Concepción’s soft, dreamy shapes with surfaces that appear deeply coruscated appear to be floating in deep space or a bottomless abyss. Florian Depenthal, a glider pilot, whose exuberant palette includes colors he mixes from a cache of fluorescent pigments, says some of his works are inspired by his airborne glimpses of the reflecting and absorbent planes of the earth’s surface.

Aaron Karp’s multihued, mosaic-like painting surfaces shimmer with motion, inspired by tiled domes of the Alhambra. Andy Moses’ masterful use of special aerospace paints presents surfaces that refract into a different color as the light source changes. According to critic Ed McCormack, Linda Touby’s paintings “suggest the erosion that time has wrought upon the surfaces of Giotto’s great frescoes.”

Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi, Virgin, Mixed Media/Found Objects, 20 x 20 x 8

Opening Reception, Friday October 2, 7 - 9

Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi.
Girl from Cali
In "Girl From Cali", a solo exhibition by Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi, the artist's assemblages and mixed media works depict religious, political and gender issues inspired by her life experiences, memories, and personal journey from Colombia to the United States. Using found objects and eerie castaway dolls, Cecilia’s art is intensely revealing, provoking both thought and dialogue.

“I’ve always been drawn to objects tossed aside by others because of my own feelings of displacement,” saidCecilia. “As an immigrant, I have often struggled with ideas of belonging, even after living in the U.S. for more than 40 years.”

This exhibition at the Consulate of Colombia rootsCecilia’s work in a Latin Diaspora where people save, fix or recycle almost everything for another use and where socio-cultural stigmas are ever-present. "Girl From Cali" runs through the month of October and is free and open the public.

Permanent Exhibit of the Works of Manuel Carbonell and Mauro Arbiza,


“Couple in Love”, bronze, 2003, 8 ft. high, by Carbonell, Lobby of the Mandarin Oriental Miami


An important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master Sculptor Manuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work. Three monumental 8-foot Carbonell sculptures are on exhibit at Art Midtown on Midtown Blvd. and NW 34th Street in cooperation with Daniel Azoulay Gallery.

We invite you to visit our gallery to see an important collection of the works of Carbonell ranging from maquettes to monumentals and the paintings and sculptures of Mauro Arbiza
