Preview LR Projects at Art Miami - A Showcase of Contemporary Mixed Media Art
LRFA is participating in its second consecutive year at Art Miami 2022, with a solo exhibition of works by German artist Michael Laube. The gallery brings Laube’s most recent collection of multilayered acrylic installations to Miami this year via their initiative, LR Projects. Launched in 2022, LR Projects aims to champion pioneers of creative expression beyond traditional media in honor of LRFA’s long-standing emphasis on contemporary mixed media art. From transforming light and color to redefining dimensionality, its select artists have been recognized for paving new ways in leading-edge innovation in today's mixed media techniques.
LR Projects’ booth highlights its Fall 2022 Featured Artist for his distinctive exploration of modularity through a use of color influenced by the likes of Donald Judd and Barnett Newman. By combining opaque and translucent stripes of color in his painterly treatment of acrylic surfaces, Laube employs his interest in architecture to invite viewers to uniquely engage with space in each wall sculpture. For more information about Laube and his upcoming presentation at the art fair, please visit his artist page.
Visitors can learn more about LR Projects and Michael Laube at Booth No. AM500 at Art Miami.
Preview LRFA at CONTEXT Art Miami - Pushing the Boundaries of Contemporary Art
LRFA returns to CONTEXT Art Miami for its third time with a collection of new contemporary works by Gil Bruvel, Zhuang Hong Yi, Stallman Studio, Jane Waterous, Christopher Schulz, Paul Rousso, and Robert Mars. The gallery is honored to be one of 75 featured galleries from across over 20 countries this year.
Gil Bruvel’s larger-than-life sculpture is one of many to take center stage at LRFA’s booth at CONTEXT Art Miami. Visitors can experience Bruvel’s unique approach to reimagining the human face through his freestanding pixelated sculptures and wall “masks” made entirely from burnt wood and paint.
The booth also features a selection of contemporary works by one of China’s most influential artists, Zhuang Hong Yi. Renowned for his iconic Flowerbed series made from hand-folded and painted rice paper, he mirrors the chromatic shifts seen across aerial views of tulip fields in the Netherlands, pulling in observers to interact with each piece from different viewpoints.
Stallman Studio, composed of artistic duo Jason Hallman and Stephen Stum, reflects LRFA’s ethos of representing inventive uses of mixed media as well through their pioneering technique of sculpting with canvas. Drawing inspiration from undulating patterns found in the natural world, their stylized combinations of sculpture and painting embody dynamism and fluidity as they meld together the effects of light, pigment, and structure.
