ALL GROWN UP - Richard Vergez
In his solo exhibition, All Grown Up, Cuban-American artist Richard Vergez explores and dissects the perception of development: oscillating between the emotional, intellectual, and physical spaces in which growth occurs.
While creating this body of work, the artist posed the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” In itself, the question exudes proverbial innocence and then at once can be transformed into contemplation of existentialist dread.
The artist continues to play on classic surrealist motifs, utilizing hand-cut collage technique as well as a contemporary form of digital manipulation during the process to create ethereal, dark and dreamlike sceneries. These mixed media narratives invoke a sense of equivocal contemplation between the internal and external, between development and accomplishment, as if to ask: “Are you being what you want to be?”
Exhibition will be on view until October 27th, 2019.

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.
