On Paper features works by Francisca Oyhanarte, Victoria Ravelo and Raymond Saa. Choosing the medium of paper as the basis for this work, the artists have pulled traces of their histories within and beyond Miami into the visual language of their distinctive practices.
Francisca Oyhanarte is an Argentinian-born artist living and working in Miami. Since arriving in South Florida in 2015, her work has centered around use of every day materials while creating a juxtaposition of surreal imagery as a final product. Her works for this exhibition revert to this concept.
More recently, she opened Gumbo Limbo Studios in Miami, a project where she regularly exhibits her latest creations and collaborations with other local artists.
Victoria Ravelo is a first generation Cuban-American born and raised in Miami. Her work draws inspiration from urban landscape, attempting to weave together the experiences of the diverse cultures that inhabit it through a familiar visual language.
Recent group exhibitions include: Boundary, Edge Zones, Miami; outlaw culture: or higher ground, Bridge Red Studios, North Miami; Hard Edge Miami, University of Miami Gallery—Wynwood. Solo exhibitions include: Take me home, Flowerbox Projects, Miami; Now, Miami Dade College, Homestead.
Raymond Saá was born in New Orleans, raised in Miami and currently lives in New Jersey. Saá is a professor of art at Drew University and has a myriad of prominent exhibitions under his belt. He was raised by his mother and grandparents, who were exiles from Cuba. His struggle to maintain their Cuban heritage here in the United States adds some serious poetic justice to his art work. The bold colors hail to the flora and fauna of his native island. The black and white pieces depict a first-generation struggle to maintain their culture in a new country. One can certainly see the beauty of transition through his work.
We work exclusively with artists that are living, working or establishing their practice in South Florida.
With so many international galleries embedding themselves in Miami's rapidly growing art scene, &gallery is pushing to maintain the presence and success of local emerging and mid-career artists.
&gallery was founded in 2014 by husband and wife duo, Jordan Trachtenberg and Annie Berkowitz.
From the beginning, &gallery's primary mission has been to support South Florida artists.
The practice began as an art and exhibition space for contemporary art and design in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood, which has since expanded into much more.
&gallery has established itself as a platform for local artists to broadcast their work to collectors near and far through exhibitions in their Little Haiti gallery space, participation in art fairs and contract work with designers and developers.
