James McNabb: A SOLO EXHIBITION “METROS”

MIAMI, Fla. (September 20, 2014) – Saw this artist during last years Art Basel Weekend festivities in Miami. Totally recommned this show. The pristine white gallery at Robert Fontaine will suit this artist well. Robert Fontaine Gallery, located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, will showcase new works by artist James McNabb in a solo exhibition entitled “Metros.” The opening reception will be held Saturday, October 11th from 5 to 8 p.m. during Wynwood’s Second Saturday Art Walk. The exhibit will be on view October 9th through October 28th 2014.

James McNabb is a Philadelphia based artist working primarily in wood. His creations of cityscape inspired sculptures explore sociological concepts regarding transformations of cities and urban landscapes, their beauty, uniqueness, and overdevelopment. In his sculptures, McNabb uses scrap pieces of wood,, some with very unique and alluring characteristics, that are contextualized to draw new meaning out of the material and force the viewer to create his or her own perspective of the urban landscape. McNabb blends traditional woodworking technique with experimental mark making using a bandsaw. This intuitive process, referred to as “sketching with a bandsaw” allows the artist to generate forms rapidly, working through new and exciting ideas without preliminary design development. This approach to woodworking is an attempt to capture the fast paced, crude mark-making that is commonly found in contemporary urban art. The resulting works in “METROS” are distorted compositions of abstracted architectural forms, exploring the limitless possibilities of the urban landscape and our human relationship to it.

The Giving Hour

The Childrens Bereavement Center hosts support groups all over South Florida, free of charge, for those families, kids, teens and young adults who have lost a loved one.

Dwayne Wade’s Makes Art, Like with Paint

Dwayne Wade’s art can now be seen at Brisky Gallery in Miami Wynwood District. Part of the #ArtOfBasketBall Series. On display at Brisky is an original 46″ x 36″ inch abstract work of art painted on a slab of the 2012 NBA All Star court. Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade took to what he knows best, basketball, as his dribbling skills came in handy to create the one of a kind splatter marks and intuitive impressions. More to come during Art Basel Weekend in Miami 2014.
