RUSH Arts Gallery – Booth 110
Rush Arts Gallery is pleased to be participating in SELCT MIAMI 2013, booth 110 Dec. 4th – Dec 8th. Rush Arts Gallery is bringing together a collection of diverse artists working in traditional and alternative materials whose work reflects the contemporary complexities of merging societies and cultural balances.
Ruby Amanze uses drawing and mixed media to bridge her Nigerian, American, and British roots and reflect the African Diaspora through afro-futurist symbolisms. Selin Balci used the growth of mold spores to create abstract paintings that parallel human’s social migrations and interactions. Her video of mold spores taking over the world is a comparison of our contemporary cultures global interactions. Ai Campbell reflects natural balances through intricate black and white drawings through traditional 2 Dimensional work and 3 dimensional works. Nicky Enright created the interactive installation "Footnotes" using foot-based colloquial expressions. The piece is meant to move around the gallery floor so viewers can respond and piece the idioms together. Kazuaki Uno’s art delves into the planetary truth that there is no up or down in space, and that the earth’s axis establishes a line of reference. The printed rice paper constructions jut partially into the space from the walls at oblique, disorienting angles warping perceptions. Julian Lorber reflects on layers of urban graffiti by using a combination of found materials to create unified atmospheric 2 Dimensional works.
In addition to the above artists Rush Arts Gallery will be bringing down the 15 x 15 Print Portfolio made in conjunction with Artspace.
