Thinkspace at SCOPE Miami Beach
– Look for us at Booth F03 –

SCOPE Miami Beach is located at 801 Ocean Drive (directly on the beach) Tickets and full details can be found at: www.scope-art.com

Thinkspace is pleased to announce its participation in SCOPE Miami Beach, December 1-6, 2015. SCOPE Art Show returns to the sands of Miami Beach for its 15th anniversary edition, amidst tremendous support from the City of Miami Beach, an unprecedented outpouring of critical acclaim from press, curators and collectors, and a digital and social media outreach campaign that garnered over 300 million impressions, including praise in The New York Times, Forbes, Artnet, Artinfo, The Huntington Post and The New York Post, amongst other publications. Acting as home to over 125 international exhibitors will present groundbreaking emerging work, alongside SCOPE’s ‘Breeder’ and ‘Juxtapoz Presents’ Programs.

Now in its 4th edition, ‘Juxtapoz Presents’ celebrates artwork that bends, blends and transcends genre and we’re honored to be taking part once again. Featuring 17 innovative galleries, the ‘Juxtapoz Presents’ program embodies the New Contemporary that is SCOPE’s hallmark and adds a singular dynamism to the Miami Beach 2015 show.

Our booth will feature a double solo presentation of represented artists Kevin Peterson and Alex Yanes, alongside the gallery’s signature wall of small-format 12″ x 12″ artworks by 44 members of our Thinkspace Family. Peterson, a painter based out of Houston, Texas, and Yanes, a mixed-media sculptor / painter from Miami, Florida, create work inspired by the endless potential of the cityscape. Yanes, with colorful, multi-dimensional works, informed by his love of Miami, graffiti, tattoos, and street culture, and Peterson, with hyper-realistic oil paintings that explore the psychological vicissitudes of the urban sprawl.

An accomplished hyperrealist painter based out of Houston, Kevin Peterson creates highly detailed portraits set against the anonymous urban sprawl of the cityscape. His meticulously rendered paintings are primarily executed in oil on panel, though at times the artist incorporates mixed-media elements as well. With an attentive psychological subtlety, Peterson creates paintings that are emotive, introspective, and haunted by a sense of dislocation. He often portrays children and wildlife in gritty, urban, graffiti-marked spaces, and condemned architectures, to create stark, though beautiful, psychological contrasts. Innocence coexists with the darker dimension of urban exhaustion in these paintings. With a firm poetic allegiance to the underdog, the artist finds beauty in the city’s tensions and oppositions.

Miami artist Alex Yanes creates whimsical and highly detailed multi-dimensional works, inspired by everything from his early immersion in Miami subcultures to his recent initiation into fatherhood. His installation-based pieces are personal and intuitive, drawn from his experience and observation of his city. Made of wood, acrylic, resin and enamel, Yanes’ mixed-media works stage shifting tensions in scale, contrast and dimension. With hyper-saturated colors, immaculately finished surfaces and an unconfined sense of energy, his works encourage undeniably experiential encounters. With a graphic sensibility, drawn from his formative years immersed in tattoo, rock, hip-hop and skateboard cultures, Yanes’ imaginative expansiveness transforms the familiar into something wonderfully strange and new.

Look for Thinkspace towards the fair’s main entrance at booth F03 showcasing mini-solo shows from both Kevin Peterson and Alex Yanes.

Alongside a small group show from Thinkspace Family members:

Aaron Horkey – Adam Caldwell – Alexis Diaz – Andy Kehoe – Brian M. Viveros – Casey Weldon – Cinta Vidal – David Cooley – Derek Gores – Drew Leshko – Ernest Zacharevic – Jacub Gagnon – James Bullough – James Marshall (aka Dalek) – Joao Ruas – Josh Keyes – Ryan Hewett – Sergio Garcia – Seth Armstrong – Troy Lovegates

‘Looking Glass’ sneak peek #2 – Peter Taylor

12″x12″
This is the 2nd in our sneak peek series leading up to our ‘Looking Glass’ exhibit taking place during Art Basel this December in Miami at the Gen Art Vanguard Fair (see previous post for full details). We’re aiming to have a digital collector preview go out the week of the show (Dec. 4th – Dec. 7th), so please let us know if you’d like to receive that.
Look for additional ‘sneak peeks’ to be posted in the coming weeks and be sure to watch Arrested Motion for live blogging from Miami during Art Basel / Gen Art Vanguard.
PETER TAYLOR profile:
The work of Peter Taylor is all about finding ‘balance’, both in life and in the creative process. Showing strength in both drawing and collage based work, Taylor‘s latest series continues to explore themes of joy; and how one needs to find balance in all things to achieve that. I have to say that looking at his work brings on a calming, meditative state of sorts for me.
Taylor comments further on the characters that populate his world, “Sometimes I think they are enlightened and wise, but most of the time I think they have found wisdom to enjoy the present, while celebrating their personal journey. They are therapeutic for me and help me find my own balance.”
In addition to the collage based piece previewed above, Taylor will also be exhibiting five beautifully detailed graphite works on paper that have been nicely custom framed for the fair.
His contributions to the ‘Looking Glass’ exhibit are the first step in building towards his debut Los Angeles solo show with us during fall 2010.
Taylor has shown all over North America during the past few years, building a loyal following for his Budha inspired work in the process. His work has shown with such respected galleries as BLVD. Gallery (Seattle), Gallery 1988 (Los Angeles/San Francisco), Gallery 16 1/2 (Vancouver) and was also included in the ‘Superhero’ exhibit curated by Murphy Design at this past summer’s ComiCon Convention in San Diego.

ABOUT GEN ART VANGUARD NEW CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR:
Gen Art invites you to the Gen Art Vanguard New Contemporary Art Fair presented by FAGE Total happening alongside this year’s Art Basel in Miami. In partnership with Francesco LoCastro, the four-day art fair will take place from December 4-7th and brings together some of the top galleries, artists, and individuals who are helping to define the New Contemporary art movements from Pop Surrealism and New Brow to Urban Contemporary.

Building on the highly successful 2007 Vanguard Exhibition at Art Basel Miami, the goal of the fair is to advance the dialogue about these emerging contemporary art movements and their cultural context. Vanguard Art Fair takes place in the stunning Charcoal Studios where guests will enjoy gallery booths, media lounge, specialty cocktails daily from 4pm-6pm and other special programming to be announced shortly.

On Friday, December 5th, from 8pm-midnight the exhibition will be additionally highlighted through the Official Vanguard Opening Party featuring interactive installations, performance artists, music and more!

Gen Art Vanguard is a New Contemporary Art Fair founded by Gen Art to provide a fine art exhibition platform for emerging artists and to give leading contemporary art galleries access to an international network of collectors. As the first annual art fair of its kind, Vanguard represents a new forum, committed to advocating the historical significance of New Contemporary, while showcasing cutting edge talent that is mastering the amalgamation of Fine Art and mainstream culture. The goal of the art fair is to further advance the dialogue of new contemporary art movements, from their cultural roots to their current influence.
