(Wywnood Arts District- Miami, FL) – Brisky Gallery Miami is proud to present Rendering Thoughts: Sublime interpretations of the mind; an exhibition curated by Luis Valle, Brisky Gallery’s Director.
The exhibit will feature works by over 19 artists both local and international. As Brisky gallery Miami is now in its second year, the portfolio has expanded to include some new faces met during the galleries tenure and Art Basel. Rendering Thoughts is a group exhibit that will showcase some of the galleries’ regular lineup along with some new artist picked up along the way. With an ever growing portfolio Brisky gallery strives to present fresh new work to the Wynwood art scene.
The artists’ mind is a curious enigma, which onlookers ponder. Who, What, Why, Where and How did the artist get to this creation are questions asked by the viewer. Each artist in the show takes a unique approach to manifesting his or her creation. The artist vision first starts as a feeling or a thought, which must then be molded and formed with physical materials in order to be born. The show will feature a large range of photography as well as many works in painting, sculpture and new media.
