New C-Art Gallery Opening in Miami with Pop-up Exhibition
May 2 at 7p.m.
O. Ascanio Gallery
2600 NW 2nd Ave
Wynwood Miami, FL
The newest gallery to open in Miami, C-Art Gallery, in collaboration with the prestigious Marlborough Gallery in New York, is pleased to present “Reflections.” Curated by Kosme de Baraños, the show will take place as a “pop-up” exhibition, as the gallery will reveal its permanent home at a later date.
For his first solo exhibition in Miami, David Rodriguez Caballero presents thirty aluminum, brass and vinyl art works. His characteristic aluminum and brass pieces are from his metal series, while his vinyl works form part of an independent series that juxtaposes different layers of monochrome acetate resulting in a paint-like finish. The exhibit is comprised of geometric abstractions, wall installations and freestanding sculptures, taking spectators on a journey through the artist’s transition from three-dimensionality to sculpture.
David Rodríguez Caballero arrives in Miami for his solo exhibition after a strong showing at the Marlborough New York (Recent Works, Marlborough Chelsea, February 2012), and Madrid (Ongoing pieces, Marlborough Madrid, November 2012) that were well received by the public, critics and art collectors. In addition, his work was recently showcased at Art Basel Miami Beach, The Armory Show and Arco.
“I am honored that C-Art Gallery has given me this opportunity. Guests will be able to observe the breadth of my work, from my characteristic brass and aluminum pieces, to my recent aesthetic investigations and combinations of organic elements with inorganic elements. The inspirations derived from living in New York over the past two years are apparent in my newer pieces — the skyscrapers and concrete mix with my visual thinking to produce abstract configurations,” said Rodriguez Caballero.
Director of C-Art Gallery Cesar Rodriguez stated, “we are excited to launch C-Art with such a visionary artist, it sets the tone for what we plan to do next. We are convinced that David’s work is an excellent option for contemporary art collectors throughout South Florida and Latin America, and are certain locals will enjoy the show.
“I am thrilled that his work will be showcased in Miami, his pieces will captivate both art collectors and art aficionados,” quipped Curator Kosme de Baraño. David Rodríguez Caballero is already creating the art works that will be shown in future exhibits, i.e. at the Carmen de Valencia Center in Spain in June of 2013, and the Monaco outpost of the Marlborough next October.Be sure to tell them Soul Of Miami sent you!
