Public Art Wednesday: Departure by Yuri Tuma

Tomorrow, November 6th (Thursday), “Departure”, a series of new work by Miami-based artist Yuri Tuma will be opening at Butter Gallery with an artist reception. The works in “Departure” are re-shaped and re-contextualized photographs, like most of Tuma’s works. The large scale chromatic works of the collection take their origins, which are cell-phone photographed items, spaces, and colors to their most simplified forms; clean shapes and simple lines. Tuma combines mobile software with a psychologically meditative process to create the symmetry and patterns found in his images.

Artist Yuri Tuma was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and now lives and works in Miami. He was recently selected as a Fordista resident and as a finalist for the 2014 Miami New Times’ Mastermind award. He has had four solo exhibitions with Butter Gallery and has participated in group shows and art fairs in New York and Shanghai.
