Exhibition: November Contemporary
November 2 – November 24, 2012
November Contemporary is the 6th event of a series that features painting, sculpture, installation, photography, performances, collage and video of international artists.
Nina Torres Fine Art has established the first waterfront gallery in the heart of Downtown Miami, in what it promises to be Miami’s true cultural destination: the Miami Arts & Entertainment District.
The brand new 8,000 square feet gallery space across the street of Margaret Pace Park is located at 1800 North Bayshore Drive, in a high-rise building adorned with fountains and with breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach and the Port of Miami.
About her invitation to join at the group show November Contemporary the young artist is very happy. But what is it that makes her work so different? Carmen Graber replies: “My acrylic paintings are often formed by photographs I find in magazines, books and other visual media. The focus of my interest lies on composition and the protagonists’ pose in the images, as well as the openness in interpreting their actions. A special meaning lies in the gesture that indicates cultural, social or political discrepancies. In my work, the motive of the child is a symbol not only for what is in the present but also always for what will be in the future and therefore stands for duration. Although the motifs are taken from reality, I have taken them from their context. The result is equivalent to my inner point of view. You can see it in my works Comprehension, Summerday, Amor and Girl with Cat.”
Carmen Graber, born 1979 in Landau/ Germany, is constantly on the search for contradictions, inconsistencies or alienations. In her latest series Carmen Graber expands her art to the integration of ad-hoc photos that show spontaneously taking scenes of the day-to-day live. The figures seem to act as on stage. She succeeds in reflecting the discomfort and depression of modern society in simple gestures, posture and directness of the people on display with their dreamy facial expression.
The recent exhibition at Nina Torres Fine Art Miami offers an opportunity in-depth reflection upon Carmen Graber`s individual works – to be visited from November 2 to November 24, 2012.
