Highlights of the fairs in no particular order
Guerra de la Paz, this was my first intro to this collaborative duo Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz. There was a monstrous tree which was made up of a mish mash of recycled clothing and was spectacular. I look forward to exploring their work further.
Vaughn Bell had a site-specific installation in a large closet that played footage shot out of airplanes. This piece was cerebral and many of us kept going back to it.
Carlos Betancourt’s His work had a bit of everything and I mean everything. Layering, sculpture, and color and more color. Ultimately we found it fun and engaging. His work clearly is soaked with Pop-Culture!
Bernar Venet, 70 yr old artist who can rock it out with the best of them. His massive metal sculpture seemed to want to scoop everyone up. His work exudes vibrancy and strength.
Check these folks out and explore some new terrain.
