Shepard Fairey's OBEY 3-FACE COLLAGE is a vibrant and powerful work that speaks to the artist's ongoing interest in portraiture and propaganda. 

 

The three faces in the collage are based on photographs of Andre the Giant, taken during his time as a professional wrestler and iconic Pop figure in entertainment. By re-contextualizing these images within the framework of fine art, Fairey questions the traditional boundaries between high and low culture.

 

 The result is a captivating and thought-provoking work that is sure to generate discussion and debate. OBEY 3-FACE COLLAGE is an essential addition to any collection of contemporary art.

As the title indicates, New River Fine Art explores the genuine and authentic story behind the artist, while showing the au courant of his work.  Through the artwork, text, and gallery ephemera, we bear witness to the artist’s rise from an unknown street artist to a highly collected Contemporary fine artist.  The curatorial stance briefly touches on the artist’s more formative years after he departs the U.K. to arrive in the United States to sell graffiti-inspired Pop Art on the streets of New York City, before energetically progressing to showcase his current body of work. 

 

As an artist, I am drawn to the free spirit of America,” says Cotton, describing his decision to move from London to New York City at 24 years old to pursue a full-time art career in the United States.

OPENING TOMORROW!!!


New River Fine Art is proud to announce “100% Cotton”- A Solo Exhibition by Andrew Cotton, the debuting solo exhibition by Andrew Cotton, featuring the split-portrait portrayals that have gained the artist international recognition along with new text-based works, abstract paintings, collaged surfboards, vintage Americana, gorgeous pinups, Hollywood icons, and coastal beach scenes, opening September 15, 2022, and running through October 16, 2022. 

 

“100% Cotton” shows a resourceful artist in tune with his own artistic practices.  Cotton embraces his coveted family lineage and formulaically calculates the building of his own brand with a narrower and more focused mindset to produce artwork that successfully blends pop culture, nostalgia, friendships, and kinships – a culmination where his authenticity is key for success.

Gustavo Torres is a widely acclaimed bronze sculptor whose work often evokes the classical sculptures of antiquity. However, Torres imbues his work with a sense of vitality and movement that sets it apart from these static images of the past. 

He achieves this by capturing gestures such as the sway of a woman's hips, a figure's glance, or a dog's upturned ear. The rough finish on his sculpture invites touch and contemplation, inviting viewers to engage with the work on a physical and emotional level. As a result, Torres' work is both highly aesthetically pleasing and deeply moving, offering viewers a unique and unforgettable experience.

"My goal is to capture the spirit of the form," he says. "You do this by using the least amount of material possible. This is the most difficult… finding the essence. The rough texture allows the viewer to feel the sculpture and get a sense of its forms." According to Torres, the pointed, fused legs on his human figures "combine to one point in life." Stalactites that connect with the earth gave him the idea for this natural form. 

Torres is an old-fashioned bronze sculptor, meaning he uses the centuries-old lost-wax casting method and works by himself. This process includes creating the molds, pouring the waxes, finishing them, metal finishing and patina. By doing everything himself, Torres has full creative control over his pieces. This allows him to create sculptures that are truly unique and personal. His attention to detail and dedication to his craft are evident in each and every one of his pieces. Torres' passion for bronze sculpture is evident in his work, and it is clear that he is a master of his craft.

Conceptual artist Gabriel Delgado is known for his quick and witty investigations into current social and political events. Recently, the artist has turned his sights on Trump's Make America Great Again campaign, and the FBI raid on Trump's Mara Lago resort.

 

With the ever-changing landscape of contemporary politics, it can be difficult for anyone to keep a foothold, let alone a president.

 

However, Trump has shown himself to be a resilient leader, bouncing back from past scandals and investigations. Nevertheless, the artist believes that Trump's current struggle with the FBI could be his downfall. Only time will tell if Trump will be able to weather this latest storm.

 

Either way, Delgado's work provides a humorous and thought-provoking commentary on the current state of affairs.

 

In the artwork, the phrase "Make America Great Again" is shown to be first used by Alexander Wiley in the 76 US Congress in the 1940s. The concept behind the phrase was to encourage Americans to work together to improve the country's economy and infrastructure. In the years following Wiley's use of the phrase, it was adopted by both the Democratic and Republican party. Bill and Hillary Clinton used the phrase during their presidential campaigns, as did Barry Goldwater during his run for the Republican nomination. In 2015, Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president and chose "Make America Great Again" as his campaign slogan. Trump's use of the phrase caught on with his supporters and became a rallying cry for his campaign. Since Trump's election, the phrase has been used by other politicians to drum up support for their own agendas. Whether or not the concept of "Making America Great Again" will succeed remains to be seen, but its history is rooted in a desire to improve the country for all Americans.

Although Miró has been associated with early Surrealism and has had an influence on Abstract Expressionists and Color Field painters, he remains one of modern art's greatest mavericks with a visual vocabulary unmistakably his own. Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1893, Joan Miro was associated with the Surrealist movement in the 1920s, but he always maintained his independence from any group or style. His paintings, sculptures, and works on paper are characterized by bright colors, biomorphic forms, and line work that seems to dance across the canvas. Today, Miro's work can be found in major museums and collections all over the world, cementing his legacy as one of the most important artists of the 20th century.

Pietro and Riccardo Ferro were born into a family with a long history of working with glass. Their father, Paolo Ferro, was a well-respected glass worker, and the brothers learned from him the art of grinding. In 2000, they decided to open their own studio, Moleria, where they could continue their father's legacy and explore their own creative vision. The Ferro brothers see glass as a medium with endless potential, and they specialize in developing new vessels and techniques. Their work has been shown in galleries and museums around the world, and they are among the foremost glass artists working today. As they continue to push the boundaries of their art form, the Ferro brothers are making a lasting contribution to the world of glass.

Estella finds herself immersed in a time and place where she is surrounded by the beauty of nature.

 

The hot flames from her fire burn brightly, providing light in what would otherwise be darkness as well as warmth for those near her-both physically through her manifested bodies' heat, but also emotionally because the viewers share this moment with her in an ephemeral togetherness.

 

The simplicity found within these figures is captivating; it captures exactly how we should all feel on an everyday basis: vulnerable yet strong when facing adversity or danger without fear. A primordial feminine power that rings true today.

 

In celebration of Mother Nature, Estella dresses the naked form to represent a new godly beauty. Using semi-precious stones formed over millions in years ago by ancient science, our observations tells us each stone has its own meaning that our eyes can detect, and find the beauty within them all… just as it is for this great lady who brings life into everything she touches!

 

The human form is her medium, and nature embodies beauty in every facet of her female forms.

The American artist and filmmaker Andy Warhol was born Andrew Warhola in 1928 in Pittsburgh. He is considered a founder and major figure of the POP ART movement. He got his first break in August 1949, when Glamour Magazine wanted him to illustrate a feature entitled “Success is a Job in New York”. But by accident the credit read “Drawings by Andy Warhol” and that’s how Andy dropped the “a” in his last name. He continued doing ads and illustrations and by 1955 he was the most successful and imitated commercial artist in New York. In 1960 he produced the first of his paintings depicting enlarged comic strip images – such as Popeye and Superman – initially for use in a window display. Warhol pioneered the development of the process whereby an enlarged photographic image is transferred to a silk screen that is then placed on a canvas and inked from the back. Each Warhol silkscreen used this technique that enabled him to produce the series of mass-media images – repetitive, yet with slight variations – that he began in 1962. These iconic Andy Warhol prints, incorporating such items as Campbell’s Soup cans, dollar bills, Coca-Cola bottles, and the faces of celebrities, can be taken as comments on the banality, harshness, and ambiguity of American culture. Later in the 1960s, Warhol made a series of experimental films dealing with such ideas as time, boredom, and repetition; they include Sleep (1963), Empire (1964), and The Chelsea Girls (1966). In 1965 he started working with a rock band called “The Velvet Underground” formed by Lou Reed and John Cale.

New Work by Gustavo Torres
Búho (Owl), 2022, (10/50)
Bronze Sculpture
11.50 x 6 x 3 in


Now Available | DM for Inquires

Gustavo Torres began sculpting at a very young age in Mexico, training with accomplished artists. Torres left Mexico after receiving his BFA to pursue a career in art in the United States. 

Mainly influenced by Alberto Giacometti as well as the Nuns of Guadalajara, Torres is both a talented visual artist and a master craftsman, whose visual imagery reflects the quiet, deep spirit of an ancient culture. His experiences while attending a private Catholic school as a child had great impact on his early art education, and religious symbols were his subjects during these formative years. Torres' style is both primitive and abstract and he looks to create a ''spiritual balance'' in his art. He strives to elevate the human spirit by using primitive and natural forms reminiscent of Mayan and Spanish cultures.

Besner was born in 1965 in North Lancaster, Ontario. He completed his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Montreal in 1992. This early education allowed him to focus his thoughts on the nature of the city and its components. The artist is entirely open to the vibrations of contemporary society which he seeks to remodel in new forms of plasticity, hovering somewhere between the figurative and the abstract. His aim is not to create an ideal or to reproduce nature, but rather to give form to the energy emanating from the metaphysics of human activity.

Cotton creates the identifiable and recognizable facets of his subjects to exist simultaneously with the conceptual painterly identity that he has constructed.  He brings forth, through visual clues and references, parts of their individual roles, personalities, and actions – a skewed contemporary caricature that emphasizes cultural ranks, not embellished sarcasm.

New River Fine Art is pleased to announce the representation of Conceptual Artist, Gabriel Delgado.


Delgado acts as teacher and researcher while presenting facts about human psychology, issues, events, circumstances, and cause & effects relations to an audience who can then formulate their own understanding of the various topics. 

His signature PEMDAS driven, and conceptually solvable Order of Operations mathematical equations bring to light the elegance of numerical and text-driven logic via an expressive scientific chalkboard aesthetic.

Delgado uses a variety of techniques and applications to create works of art that not only educate but create visual avenues for debate and community discussion.

His themed artworks often deal with Decentralized Finance, Science, Economy, Social Reform, and other relevant topics that dive deep into the human psyche to investigate pivotal responses of these current topics. 

In “Binary Code”, Delgado takes on the daunting task of mathematically dissecting the historical significance of Binary Code- leading us through the building of the complex, now iconic 0 and 1’s; and how it was influenced by the Chinese I-Ching and Christianity. 

 

Delgado has been exhibited at the Drawing Center, NYC; Museum of Contemporary Art D.C.; Art Miami Art Fair 2021,2022; Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary 2021, 2022; Hamptons Fine Art Fair 2022; Market Art & Design The Hamptons Art Fair 2021; ARCO Art Fair; Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum; Art Car Museum; among many others.

Alex Gabriel Bernstein (b. 1972)

Green Window, 2015

Carved glass

22.50 x 6.50 x 4 in

 

 

 

Alex Gabriel Bernstein presents a bold and refreshing exploration of visual form and storytelling through the art of glass. Bernstein skillfully combines metaphor with the impact and optical quality of glass.  His cast, carved, and polished glass sculptures provide the viewer with intimate narrative landscapes, drawn from light, form, and color. Alex explores ideas about the passage of time and the processes of creation and transformation.

 

The forms of Bernstein’s pieces, as well as the techniques he uses to work the glass, mirror processes in nature such as oxidation, erosion, growth, and decay. As a result, many of his pieces evoke images of flowing water, ice crystals, mountain peaks and jagged canyons, all structures that seem solid and unyielding but are in constant flux.  

 

The work reflects his sense of exploration: an exquisitely cut geometric crystal sculpture set against a brutal, rusted steel backdrop, volcanic bursts of cut-glass spewing from a steel-encrusted base, layers of transparent color intermingling with ambient light. Alex’s sculptures reflect his feelings and sensitivity to others, curiosity, and enthusiasm for bringing new dimensions to his sculpture.

 

Others will seek to employ Alex’s techniques, but none will achieve the depth of expressionism, his ability to depict the emotions and responses that objects, and events arouse in him. This is the underlying strength of his work in glass.

 

Alex holds an M.F.A. in glass sculpture from the School for American Crafts at RIT.

In observance of National Monkey Around Day, we salute Mr. Brainwash and his “Everyday Life” painting at New River Fine Art

 

Monkey Around Day is an annual celebration observed on June 14. The holiday encourages everyone to set aside their worries and toss out their inhibitions. Monkey Around Day is a day to just goof off and do whatever comes to mind. Maybe you have a wild idea that you’ve always wanted to try but were afraid to. 

 

Today’s the perfect opportunity to be brave and safely have some fun. You’ll be pleased you did it tomorrow!!!

Mainly influenced by Alberto Giacometti as well as the Nuns of Guadalajara, Gustavo Torres is both a talented visual artist and a master craftsman, whose visual imagery reflects the quiet, deep spirit of an ancient culture. Torres' style is both primitive and abstract and he looks to create a ''spiritual balance'' in his art.

 

Torres strives to elevate the human spirit by using primitive and natural forms reminiscent of Mayan and Spanish cultures. Each of his sculptures has the texture of antiquity, and the rough finger work and the carefully chosen patinas convey a worn, earthy presence.

Reigning Queen 

This week, the U.K. is celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne. She rose to the throne in 1952 at the age of 25 upon the death of her father King George VI. In her honor, there will be numerous celebrations and a four-day bank holiday from June 2 to June 5. She’s become the longest-reigning monarch in British and Commonwealth history.

To commemorate this, New River Fine Art is recognizing the Queen this week with visual tributes by some of the most recognized contemporary artists of our time --- Andy Warhol, Mr. Brainwash and Hunt Slonem!

Gustavo Torres

Bronze

29.50 x 6 x 6 in

 

Gustavo Torres began sculpting at a very young age in Mexico, training with accomplished artists. Torres left Mexico after receiving his BFA to pursue a career in art in the United States. Mainly influenced by Alberto Giacometti as well as the Nuns of Guadalajara, Torres is both a talented visual artist and a master craftsman, whose visual imagery reflects the quiet, deep spirit of an ancient culture. His experiences while attending a private Catholic school as a child had great impact on his early art education, and religious symbols were his subjects during these formative years. Torres' style is both primitive and abstract and he looks to create a ''spiritual balance'' in his art. He strives to elevate the human spirit by using primitive and natural forms reminiscent of Mayan and Spanish cultures

Estella Fransbergen exquisite sculptures celebrate the female form and the natural world. Adorned in breathtaking jewels and cast in shiny bronze, her creations exude elegance. 


 

The sculptures are created using a simple “coil building” technique in clay. The torso is shaped by using firing techniques of sawdust and raku. The beauty from the intense fire allows each finished torso to have a uniqueness all its own. 


 

“In Celebration of Mother Nature… I “dress” the naked form of the torso to represent nature using feathers, branches, leaves, and gemstones. I use semi-precious and rare stones, formed over millions of years. Ancient science tells us that each stone has a symbolic meaning, and our eyes detect the unique beauty of what lies within each. My work is the expression of the human form… and the embodiment of beauty entwined with the powers of Nature." - Estella Fransbergen

Today we commemorate Jesus Christ’s ascension into heaven (as per Christian belief) by celebrating Ascension Day. 

 

Known by multiple names — The Feast of the Ascension, The Ascension of Jesus, Ascension Thursday, Holy Thursday, or Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord — this holiday is important to Christians because it shows Jesus really had overcome death – he wasn't just resurrected to die again, but to live forever.

 

To honor the holiday we are showcasing work by American artist Frank Mason. Mason has been described as the artist who carried the torch of realism through Abstract Expressionism. He was a true renaissance man in his humanistic concern for the figure and an artist with the same aesthetic concerns as a seventeenth-century painter.

Miss Bugs is a UK based artistic duo known for their innovative kaleidoscopic patterns of resin-encapsulated razorblades, drug paraphernalia, and pop culture icons which pair nostalgic iconography with contemporary technique. 


 

Their unique artistic statement and its implied irony is cemented in the fact that our current technological advances have infiltrated many aspects of our private lives and hold us hostage to our addictions, obsessions, and fascinations. 


 

Data Rader is our newest arrival by Miss Bugs. This intricate artwork consists of cut paper, surgical blades, and embossed butterfly wings adorned in 24-carat gold leaf on wood and aluminum. While human form is the main topic, Data Rader incorporates the familiar with the unfamiliar in a playful, pop-art, explosion of color.

New River Fine Art is pleased to showcase artwork by multimedia artist and engineer Louis Markoya


 

A former protégé of master surrealist Salvador Dalí, Markoya beautifully blends modern technology and classical art with his interactive lenticular prints. 


 

Markoya’s interest in lenticular prints developed while assisting Dalí on 3D projects that included holograms. Markoya’s innovative artworks use fractal geometry, mathematics and 3-D holographic technology to depict human thought and emotion.

Being a teenager in North London during the graffiti boom, Andrew Cotton was immediately drawn to the pioneers of the UK graffiti scene. But, wanting to develop his career as an international artist, he found himself residing in New York City at the ripe age of 24. Here he found inspiration in the DIY aesthetic of the street art market.

 

Today, his contemporary style spans stunning abstracts, iconic vintage images and urban landscapes, and makes powerful statements using dynamic colors, mixed media and a variety of surfaces.


 

In Basquiat, this 60 x 48 in painting, Cotton honors Jean-Michel Basquiat who’s known for his influence on street art and hip-hop during the 1980s. 


 

This juxtaposed piece features the likeness of the iconic artist in black and white, while on the other side is Cotton’s colorful artistic interpretation of how the subject views the world.

Head to New River Fine Art to see whimsical new artworks by Hunt Slonem.

 

Slonem’s love for nature and distinct neo-expressionist style are seen in his newest paintings which focus on naturalistic subject matter, bright colors, and the mystical. 

 

“Hunt Slonem’s work is appealing to collectors because his subject matter is so endearing, such as repetitive bunnies, exotic birds, butterflies duplicating and his wonderful thick applications of paint. The subject matter is easy to live with and works well in both contemporary and traditional collections” - Polly Larsen, principal owner of Larsen Gallery.

The newest edition of Spotlight Rio Vista is out. The full-page ad with Miss Bugs is stunning!!!

 

 

Check out our current artwork available by Miss Bugs on our website at. www.newriverfineart.com

 

Miss Bugs is a London-based Street art duo founded in 2007 and is composed of "Miss" and "Bugs". They are known for their colorful and contemporary mixed-media artwork. Miss Bugs uses an array of techniques from silk screen printing to resin casting. Their most recent works are large-scale pieces, incorporating laser cut planes of wood, hundreds of small toys, and objects, and poured resin. 

Miss Bugs’ kaleidoscopic patterns of resin-encapsulated razorblades, drug paraphernalia, and pop culture icons give a visual critique to contemporary times; generating artifacts revealing preferences mankind has made on modern advances.

Miss Bugs has exhibited in New York, San Francisco, LA, Paris, and London. Their artwork is also in several significant private collections around the world.

Today we celebrate Buddha Purnima, the birth of Prince Siddharta Gautama, or Buddha.


Buddha was a philosopher who achieved enlightenment after 49 days of uninterrupted meditation under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya, discovering the key to ending ‘suffering’. He attested that ‘four noble truths’ held the solution.  


Buddha is also the founder of Buddhism and preached the lessons of dharma, non-violence, harmony, kindness, and path to nirvana to the world.


The word ‘Purnima’ is Sanskrit for ‘full moon’, which explains why this holiday is celebrated on a full moon day and during the month of ‘Vaisakhi’ in Hindu/Buddhist lunar calendars.


We pay homage to Buddha today with a stunning sand cast Halo Buddha by Marlene Rose

Magnificent work by Marc Chagall inspired by the Twelve Maquettes of Stained Glass Windows for Jerusalem series. 


Extremely vibrant with brilliant fresh colors, the painterly quality of this work adds texture and depth to the piece. 


Jean Leymarie stated of this work, "The golden harmony of this triumphant window, brightly shining directly opposite the entrance, across from the brilliant red of Zebulun, is the result of two orange ochres fused to white and yellow…the rhythm of the drawing is a succession of spirals and enveloping curves” (Leymarie 81).


Within the Prints discipline, "After" relates to the artist working with a printer to create a set of prints influenced by, or "after" an original work of art.

Salvador Dali was born May 11, 1904 in Figueres, Spain. He was an intelligent and creative child who displayed notable artistic abilities. Dali would go on to study art in Madrid and Barcelona where he assimilated a vast number of artistic styles.  


It was not until the late 1920s, however, that two events brought about the development of Dali’s mature artistic style: his discovery of Sigmund Freud’s writings on the erotic significance of subconscious imagery and his affiliation with the Paris Surrealists, a group of artists and writers who sought to establish the “greater reality” of the human subconscious over reason. 


As Dali's work evolved, his paintings depicted a dreamworld in which commonplace objects were juxtaposed, deformed, or otherwise metamorphosed in a bizarre and irrational fashion. Dali portrayed those objects in an extremely precise manner and in almost painfully realistic detail. His creations focused on themes of man's universe and sensations, sexual symbolism and ideographic imagery. 

 

In the course of his long career, Dali successfully mastered sculpture, printmaking, fashion, advertising, writing, and, perhaps most famously, filmmaking in his collaborations with Luis Buñuel and Alfred Hitchcock. 


Dali is remembered and celebrated for his flamboyant personality, eccentric style, and above all his ability to create something unknown which totally changed the way art was defined.


Happy birthday Salvador Dali!

Today we celebrate Cinco de Mayo, a yearly celebration held on May 5, which commemorates the anniversary of Mexico's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza. The victory of a smaller, poorly equipped Mexican force against the larger and better-armed French army was a morale boost for the Mexicans.

 

In commemoration of this event, we honor and spotlight New River Fine Art artist Gustavo Torres, a Mexico born sculptor. Gustavo Torres began sculpting at a very young age in Mexico, training with accomplished artists.

 

Mainly influenced by Alberto Giacometti as well as the Nuns of Guadalajara, Torres is both a talented visual artist and a master craftsman, whose visual imagery reflects the quiet, deep spirit of an ancient culture. His experiences while attending a private Catholic school as a child had great impact on his early art education, and religious symbols were his subjects during these formative years. Torres' style is both primitive and abstract and he looks to create a ''spiritual balance'' in his art. He strives to elevate the human spirit by using primitive and natural forms reminiscent of Mayan and Spanish cultures. Each of his sculptures has the texture of antiquity, and the rough finger work and the carefully chosen patinas convey a worn, earthy presence. Torres believes that ''art without spirituality is nothing.'' This statement demonstrates his reverence for life and serves as a tribute to the depth of his feelings regarding the mysteries of creation.

 

His sculptures have been exhibited at the Carmel Arts Association and several prominent fine art galleries. He is a member of the Carmel Art Association and received a Gold Medal in national competition for a life-size bronze bust in Guadalajara. AWARDS AND ACCOLADES Gold medal, Salon de Octubre, Guadalajara, Mexico, 1987 Museum of Latin American Artists, Long Beach, CA - Permanent Collection Vanderbilt University - The Divinity School - Permanent Collection, among others.

Celebrating National SuperHero Day with art by Mr. Brainwash!


 

National SuperHero Day is a day to honor all heroes, whether real or fictional. Heroes are people we look up to, who inspire us and who keep us safe. 

 

For some, superheroes are those we grew up with, Superman, Batman, and Robin. But in real life, superheroes can be anyone who goes above and beyond to do good for others.


 

Who's your favorite SuperHero?

Today we celebrate #EarthDay with belgium self taught photographer Antoine Rose


 

Rose’s passion for photography, travels and the sea started at a very young age. He was the official photographer of the Kitesurfing World Cup for several years and has traveled around the globe, from South Africa to Istanbul, capturing those magic moments. 


 

Rose’s powerful camera allows for the highest resolution even for the smallest detail. His bird’s eye view shots explore colorful and captivating scenes of people, landscapes, and nature. 


 

Today we are inspired by earth’s beauty and reminded to protect the environment in order to live a more sustainable life.

New River Fine Art would like to congratulate Hunt Slonem for being included in “Personal Structures”, the upcoming 2022 Venice Biennale exhibition, in Venice, Italy. 

This year’s exhibition revolves around the concept of “Reflection intended with the double meaning of a visible episode, perceived by the eyes; and a mental deed, as an act of thinking and pondering by the mind.” 

New River Fine Art is proud to be one of the premiere galleries who exhibit Hunt Slonem’s work.

New River Fine Art welcomes works by Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramicist, Joan Miro, in our Springs Selections exhibit.  

Miro’s surrealist and abstract designs play with a pageantry of colors, shapes and lines. His imaginative creations are a perfect addition to our exhibition going on now.

Our Spring Selections exhibit is going on now! Stop by to see our unique and carefully curated selections, like these colorful resin lollipops from Miss Bugs 

The message behind the colored lollies containing a range of pharmaceuticals is to “critique contemporary society's obsession and consumption of social media” 

Miss Bugs has long explored ideas around addiction to digital technology, and how our reliance on such devices acts as a dangerous “anesthetic” that dulls reality 

Each lolly is created using three layers of different coloured resin, containing a mix of surgical blades, syringes and various painkillers

Dominic Besner’s artistic process allows him to create magical architectural structures in which the inherent shapes depict a fantasy version of cities and their characters. 

Besner’s ethereal characters, which often appear to be in masks, are symbolic of the theater. Their expression of the ephemeral in life is rarely melancholy. The character is active, as a thinking being, or one that amuses. Besner’s characters enjoy unraveling themselves in front of us. The character is fully aware of our presence; it watches us, possibly even asking us the same questions which inspired the artist to create them.

Wishing the happiest of birthdays to our #wcw Jennifer JL Jones

Jennifer's work is an exploration of beauty and energy. Her mixed media paintings are meditations on the duality of nature – both its physical reality and intangible spirituality. 

Jennifer’s focus on multiple layers of abstraction and refined glazing techniques allow her work to result in elegant, ever-shifting paintings that combine a poetic, sensual grace with consistently bold execution. 

Happy birthday Jennifer!💙

New River Fine Art is excited to welcome clients, patrons, collectors, and art appreciators to the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Art Fair 2022, located at the PALM BEACH COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER | 650 Okeechobee Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL | 33401.


New River Fine Art is located at booth # H9 within the convention building.


More information on the PBM+C art fair can be found at www.artpbfair.com


New River Fine Art is proud to announce its participation in Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary 2022 art fair with “Colorology”. This curated exhibition of Contemporary Art applauds current artistic approaches and aesthetics that maximize bold and bright colors in an exploration of artistic iconology and abstract art serenity. 


“Colorology” is a testimony to the science of color and its impact on mankind, within the gallery’s context of a jovial tribute to the contemporary, featuring artists: Dominic Besner, Mr. Brainwash, Andrew Cotton, Estella Fransbergen, Jennifer JL Jones, Marlene Rose, and Hunt Slonem.


Each artist uses “color” as a tool, mechanism, and dominate feature in their works to seduce the viewer. The psychological influences in this personal perception can be found in the exhibition’s Bunnies, Art-World Bad Boys, Buddhas, Bodies, and Banksy that make for a playful Pop Art pageantry of yellows, reds, greens, and blues.

Today’s #WCW we are featuring Debbie Carfagno! 


Debbie’s artistic process includes converting hand drawings to cut aluminum, which are then painted in oil. The practice seeks to create a highly dimensional effect by reducing images to their essence. This work lies between painting and sculpture, balancing abstraction and realism. 


Debbie’s new artistic series, Twelve Flowers, is her first polished stainless steel edition. These sculptures need not be limited by color, instead reflecting and absorbing whatever surrounds them. 


Happy Women's Crush Wednesday Debbie Carfagno!

Women's History Month is celebrated each March and recognizes the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. 

In celebration, New River Fine Art would like to spotlight our accomplished and skillful women artists. 

Today's Artist, Estella Fransbergen is an international sculptor whose works put a focus on elegance, femininity, and the female form.  

Fransbergen’s inspiration for her art comes from mother nature. To highlight the beauty of mother nature, each naked torso is adorned in a shower of natural gemstones and other organic materials. Each sculpture is built by hand using a coil building technique, before being exposed to primitive firing techniques of sawdust and raku. Fransbergen’s one of a kind pieces celebrate both human form and individuality.   

For more information on works by Estella Fransbergen please contact New River Fine Art

Today, as we remember the death of rapper Notorious B.I.G., we pay homage to the New York City hip-hop music culture and street art scene that inspired many neo-expressionist artists such as Basquiat and Andrew Cotton. 

Cotton abstractly captures street art legend Basquiat on this 60 x 40 mixed media canvas available at New River Fine Art Gallery

Purvis Young (1943 - 2010)

Spring Day, 2022| Paint on wood panel | 48 x 80 in

Purvis Young is among the most important self-taught artists to have emerged from the Outsider Art movement. Young transcended the labels of “Outsider” and “Self-Taught” and is today considered one of the forefathers of Street Art. His work is collected by over 60 museums including the Museum of Modern Art, NY, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco and shown at influential art fairs around the world. He was born in Miami’s Liberty City and grew up on the streets of Overtown. 

Young, harnesses the force of an unspoken, divine intervention; a spiritual dimension manifested through his ritualistic and repetitive narratives of protestor, slave, horse, and angel- a conjectural world where good and evil endlessly jostle over man’s mistakes, sins, judgements, reigns, and demises.



Stay tuned for inaugural auction of select painted sails next week supporting art and sailing scholarships following the regatta.

Two artists at New River Fine Art are involved in this great cause!

Jennifer JL Jones’ Solo Exhibition

Takes A Walk on the Wild Side

 

Gentle Wild, a solo exhibition of new works by nature-inspired abstract artist, Jennifer JL Jones, follows on the heels of her previous sold-out exhibition at New River Fine Art and pays homage to Flora and Fauna while juxtaposing serenity and calm with the raw, high-energy ferociousness found in Mother Nature.

 New River Fine Art is pleased to announce Gentle Wild, a solo exhibition by Internationally Acclaimed Contemporary Artist, Jennifer JL Jones running from Feb 3, 2022 – March 3, 2022, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

 Gentle Wild explores what the artist sees as “echoes of life”. In Gentle Wild, artworks reveal abundant wildflowers, vibrant gardens, and ocean rhythms within the cherished and tranquil moments of external and internal reflections. Yet, Gentle Wild also portrays other powerful forces found in Nature – a raw energy of untamed fierceness. Jones reveals brutal strength and power through bold and bright colors. She often describes her paintings as “inner self-portraits”, siting nature in its many layered, intangible forms as a guide and source of ethereal connection and engagement.

In this month’s edition of SPOTLIGHT: (Rio Vista Neighborhood) Magazine, we have one of our newest Brendan Murphy ads.

Part Venn Diagrams, part Executive Office white board Product Flow Mapping, and part Conceptual Mind Charting, Murphy delivers a mélange of artworks that dives deep into the subconsciousness.
Brendan Murphy has eloquently blended abstract and figurative forms to impress upon the viewer a sense of universal understanding through realized common-grounds and optimistic channels of philosophical revelations. Incontestable associations of mind and matter manifest artistic driven thoughts connecting man to man, man to the universe, and man to cosmic existentialism.

Brendan Murphy visualizes a world in which a spiral of unconnected words become a relevant mantra of contemporary culture. This new world, formed by expressing the inner thoughts into the outer atmospheres of each moment is now a summoned philosophical civil society where all beings possess the same primordial desires, but form connections with uninhibited aspects of personal reflections.

Brendan Murphy currently works from his home-based studios in South Florida. Notable mentors include Eric Fischl, David Salle, and Ross Bleckner. His work is represented in over 600 private collections and his new works are commonly featured at Art Fairs around the world through his gallery representation in the USA, Canada, Germany, Colombia, England, and Monaco.

Stop by New River Fine Art to see the new Ferro vases and Murano Glass Available. 

Pietro and Riccardo Ferro, born respectively in 1975 and 1980, followed in the footsteps of their father, Paolo Ferro, and under his leadership, they learned the art of grinding. In 2000, they opened Moleria, where all artists who work in grinding can be followed. The Ferro brothers see glass as a valuable canvas for creating and expressing their ideas. They specialize in developing new vessels and special artistic structures. The brothers have collaborated with world-renowned artists such as Lino Tagliapietra, Davide Salvadore, Pino Signoretto, and many others. Working on Murano, they have also collaborated with many companies located there, such as Venini, Barovier & Toso, and Seguso.

"We are all a part of and connected to this natural power, beauty, and chaos. Nature is just so unbelievably and undeniably balanced and magical. Think about the soft breeze that feels so good like a gentle caress on your skin… and yet that same wind can become a mighty storm. In my work I’m using all of this as my inspiration and tapping into the passionate place I now find myself."- Jennifer JL Jones

New River Fine Art is excited about the new Brendan Murphy artworks that arrived at the gallery from the studio! 

Here is a sneak peek of about a dozen new paintings and sculptures that are now available. DM for details

Brendan Murphy (B 1971 - ) is a widely known contemporary artist whose works are found in prominent private collections and galleries around the world. Since his early career, Brendan has blended abstract and figurative forms to reveal meaning with deeper contemplations through his sculpture and painting. Brendan believes it is in art’s potential where we can most universally transmit positive energy. 

He recognizes the effect this energy, when experienced as a collective, can have on society as a whole. His commitment to process and true craftsmanship is the unifying thread throughout his body of work.

Sometimes you feel the urgency in the art. The outstretched arms, the blood on the ground…. the agony, desire, yearning, movement, marching, and Divine Intervention. The ripped, torn, and crumbled paper only adds to the fragility of the visual aesthetic --man’s plight in this world of hostility and hope. Purvis Young was known to paint on just about anything to give the world his message…. man must be willing to listen. 

Have we forgotten how to listen?

A departure from the signature split portrait series, Andrew Cotton delivers a powerful abstract painting that is bold and dynamic. The figure on the right side of the composition is reminiscent of Bruce Nauman, while the editing and mark making is a bit Twombly-esque.

We think Cotton is onto something here!

Andrew Cotton as featured in the new edition of FORT LAUDERDALE ILLUSTRATED –

Article Excerpt: “…His exclusive work in partnership with New River Fine Art on Las Olas is thanks to its president, Lisa Burgess. “I gave her 15 pieces, and she sold everything,” shares Cotton.

“She’s keeping me super busy, and it’s fun.”

At New River Fine Art, his contemporary artwork is on display, including his series titled Split Portraits. The juxtapose art features the likeness of an icon—those who influenced the culture and Cotton’s career—in black and white. “On the other side, depending on who the artist or the icon is, I then paint that in a dimension of how they see and view the world and explore that side,” says Cotton.

To date, he’s created originals of Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring, Abraham Lincoln, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who’s known for his influence on street art and hip-hop. “I think the work speaks for itself,” he says. “I’m happy the art is selling.”

Purvis Young, a Black American born in Florida, lived through Miami’s 1960s race riots, was personally affected by the Civil Rights Movement, and the embodiments of the Black Power struggle. As an artist and as a citizen, he along with others in Miami, had major grievances, including deplorable housing conditions, economic exploitations, bleak employment prospects, racial discriminations, and poor police-community relations. Purvis Young unequivocally expressed societal and racial issues, serving as an early activist through his art – thoughtfully dissecting politics and bureaucracy. Originally labeled as an Outsider artist for his lack of formal art education, Contemporary collectors now consider him a pioneer and early forefather to the Street Art movement. He utilized a new type of urban storytelling, employing a graphic tale that is unique, fresh, and raw - often coined Urban or Social Expressionism.

In "Submission + Authority", primitive renditions of people on horses, marchers, and troopers are on the move, aligning and realigning; engaged in civil disobedience. Our mind’s eye makes out the metaphysical struggles of a people, of poverty, and systematic strain. A painting mostly of monochromatic earth tones is accented by black and red markings.

In “Hutch Polo”, a 36 x 48-inch oil on canvas harnesses the notion that less is more. The dozen plus white rabbits huddle together in a bunny bacchanalia. Gestural outlines define the subjects. Drawn in a very rhythmic course, Hunt seemingly channels the late de Kooning and his abstract expressions. The play of foreground and background is a push and pull compatibility from negative to positive and back again. “Hutch Polo” is a calligraphic flurry of black lines that grace the minimalist aesthetic.

Hunt Slonem’s new portrait of President Lincoln feels a bit personal. Abraham Lincoln is more than a historical curiosity to Slonem, to the artist, there’s a kind of spiritual connection between the two men.

“I work with diviners and mystics…[Lincoln] guided me to paint certain things, like my doves, he wanted me to paint them as a symbol of freedom,” says Slonem.

President Lincoln”, an oil on wood painting measuring 20 x 16 inches, is an eloquently simplistic rendition of the famed lawyer, statesman and president with its black and white pinstriped background reinforcing the iconic portrait.

Slonem paints President Lincoln with such piercing eyes that we are metaphysically drawn into the historical cannons of this great man and begin to see the presidential epitome of the American Dream.

“Lincoln was one of our greatest Presidents. He was a complete free-being and a great soul, and he changed American life in ways that were profound and wonderful. I am fascinated by who he is and who he continues to be in our popular culture,” he says.

Vivien with Hat


The large format portrait “Vivien with Hat” shows Vivien Bittencourt, Alex Katz’s daughter–in-law in a white summer wide-brimmed hat.  This signature reductive aesthetic is clearly Alex Katz. Pulling out only the essential visual components of his subject, Katz delivers a face in a seemingly raw power stroke. Flat, illustrative qualities are married with hard-edged accessories and minimal modeling techniques.  At its core, a subtractive methodology by the artist allows him to edit out the visual noise and concentrate visually on the essential key elements of his art, in this case, his family.  


The use of soft colors and emphasis on fashionable details in his painting transforms the coldness of sharp lines and lack of detail into a stunning contemporary art portrait by an unrelenting 94-year-old painter.   

Katz’s use of the achromatic blue field is not so much a void but a masterful decision of the “less is more” disposition. A color field technique, Katz conquers the ability of using the blue hue not as negative space but instead cleverly addressing the surroundings with the concept of maximizing a token of color versus a destitute environment lacking in notice.  

Vivien Bittencourt grew up in São Paulo, Brazil, where she received a degree in history from the University of São Paulo. In 1986, she moved to New York City to pursue her interest in filmmaking. She produced and directed documentaries about artists, including Rudy Burckhardt, Alex Katz and Kiki Smith.  

“Vivien with Hat” is an exemplary work by Alex Katz now available at New River Fine Art.

SUNSET ORANGE

Hunt Slonem, the colorful monarch and jubilant mastermind artist in an imaginative land of butterflies, birds, and bunnies heralds a new decree of three-dimensional artworks that dazzle, entertain, and astonish. Continuing in his bold and brilliant investigation of the world’s flora and fauna, Hunt Slonem’s groundbreaking metamorphic transformation gives birth to a wonderfully refreshing realm of casted bronze, blown glass, neon, and multimedia-based au-courant artistry, in addition to his signature minimalistic and bold animal paintings.  Whipping the viewer into an ecstasy of artistic bliss, his new sculptures are a diverse mixture of ornate blue-chip craftmanship populated by Gothic Pop Art pageantry.

MAMAMITA

John Seery (born 1941) is an American artist who is associated with the lyrical abstraction movement. He was born in Maspeth, New York, was raised in Flushing, Queens, and as a teen, moved to Cincinnati, Ohio.

Seery studied at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio from 1959 to 1963 then continued his studies at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and Ohio State University in Columbus. He moved back to New York City in 1964 and remained there until 1978, when he moved to Plymouth, Massachusetts. He was on the faculty of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston and was a visiting lecturer at Harvard University during the 1980s.  In 1990, he moved to Hawaii, where he lived and worked until 2003. He currently lives in Florida.  In 2010 Katie Donoghue interviewed John Seery for WhiteWall Magazine. When asked about his association with the Lyrical Abstraction Movement, he had this to say: “This period was not an act of contrivance by the artists. The name came from a collector named Larry Aldrich. Many at the time thought Lyrical Abstraction was reaction against some previous form of painting, but it was an affirmation of painting. Rather than attacking the painting from the outside, it was more of an entering into or inhabiting the painting.”

Mamamita, a 57.5 x 52-inch acrylic on canvas, painted in 1975 is a prime example of the post Abstract Expressionist aesthetic Seery captured while following through on the sediments of the Ab Ex movement.

Seery’s Lyrical Abstraction was a type of freewheeling abstract painting that returned to various forms of painterly, pictorial, expressionism with a predominate focus on process, gestalt, and repetitive compositional strategies in general.

KISS 88

New River Fine Art is proud to present new work by international contemporary artist, RETNA.  "Kiss 88" is an artistic exploration of his signature cryptography though a blend of old and new materials. Using mixed media and various colored tapes, the artist vocalizes his implacable street dominance through symbolic reverence for inner city identity. Blues and reds push and pull through the gold overlays. Words cease to materialize, but the subliminal meaning rings loud with such bold approach. 

Born Marquis Lewis on March 24, 1979, in Los Angeles, CA, he joined the Los Angeles mural scene as a teenager, developing his text-based signature style featuring intricate line work, complex layering, and a wide range of color.

Each block of text is a sophisticated system of hieroglyphs, calligraphy and illuminated lettering. With influences extracted from Arabic, Egyptian, Hebrew, Anglo-Saxon (or Old English) and Native American mythologies, RETNA's unique vocabulary communicates a personal form of poetry; one that reflects the harsh realities of urban life, while granting itself access to metaphysical considerations. RETNA employs ancient totemic symbologies as a baseline, overlaid with rhythms from the urban jungle. These are sourced from his youth in Los Angeles, born from Pipil (western indigenous El Salvadorian), Cherokee, Spaniard and African American bloodlines.

The artist continues to live and work in Los Angeles, CA.

 La Ralentie

Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1893, Joan Miro exhibited his artistic talents at a very young age. He studied at the Academy of Barcelona and later at the Academy of Francisco Gali, where he was influenced by the Fauves, Impressionists and Cubists. Miro departed for Paris in 1919 where he became friendly with Picasso. Miro was part of the group that signed the first Surrealist Manifesto in 1924 and although his style was Surrealistic, it bordered on the fantastic. Miro's senses of the marvelous and humor are ever-present in his work. His ballet costume and set designs, his collages and large pastels reflect his capacity for re-invention and change. Miro engraved some fifty prints, mostly etchings and aquatints, with some dry-point etchings. As in his painting at the time, he was most influenced by Pollock and abstract expressionism.

RING BUDDHA MINI -Lime Green

Marlene Rose's work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both ancient and modern. When casting sculptures she incorporates relics of modern life, interesting objects that have been cast away, industrial waste items that seem to unite present and past. In the end, the completed piece transcends the sensibility of mere time. Each piece is hand cast in sand from molten glass in a spectacular process of heat and light. The energy of this dangerous dance of creation reflects in the finished work. They celebrate the unique properties of glass, of transparency, shine, and reflection. The glass immortalizes a glimpse of something fleeting beyond the moment, taking that moment, and freezing it over…

Maquerelle des princes de nuit

Dominic Besner

Maquerelle des princes de nuit, 2021

Acrylic, oil stick, modeling paste, china marker and spray paint

54 x 60 x 0.50 in

Besner was born in 1965 in North Lancaster, Ontario. He completed his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Montreal in 1992. This early education allowed him to focus his thoughts on the nature of the city and its components. The artist is entirely open to the vibrations of contemporary society which he seeks to remodel in new forms of plasticity, hovering somewhere between the figurative and the abstract. His aim is not to create an ideal or to reproduce nature, but rather to give form to the energy emanating from the metaphysics of human activity. The fantastic creations to which he gives birth on the canvas are a synonym of human fragility, of the brevity of life, by which he is both awed and troubled. Besner draws on the energy from the heart of the city, with its noise and fast-paced activity, which he then modulates in his painting. The characters depicted are necessarily imbued with the same sense of dizzying movement associated with urban press. They live in the echoes and the ambience of the city, which the artist depicts using colours, lines and motifs.

CONDO | New Arrival 

Andrew Cotton

"Condo", 2021

Mixed media on canvas

48 x 36 in

Andrew Cotton uses in his contemporary street portraits that give us a hybrid model of duality. From splatter-painted Pollock to Graffiti styled Basquiat, Cotton separates his subject in two; part anatomically correct portraiture juxtaposed with the preferred visual nomenclature of such identify. We see a split personality, the outward appearance and the inner (conceptual) appearance – simultaneously of these chosen movie stars, artist, musician, actresses, and celebrities, civic leaders, and poets.

The artwork of George Condo (above portrait by Cotton) is populated largely by dramatically stylized, almost cartoonish, characters with exaggerated, often grotesque features such as protruding over or under bites, ghoulish expressions, or is fractured nearly beyond recognition.

‘Study of a Nude’, a painting of an anonymous nude figure standing within a transparent cubic structure, was produced in 1953 by Francis Bacon and was subsequently transformed into a series of giclée prints mounted on aluminum in 2015.

This work, like many others Bacon created in the 1950s, was principally inspired by the 19th century photography pioneer Eadweard Muybridge, who produced a series of images of animals and humans to demonstrate the kinetic potentials of photography. Similarities emerge in the painting’s reduced color palette, limited to shades of grey, and the dynamic appearance of the naked body, seemingly revolving around its center.

The sense of bodily discomfort and isolation is highlighted by Bacon’s trademark ‘space frames’, abstract lines surrounding the painting’s subject like cages or transparent architectural structures. These elements contribute to emphasize the sense of the utter loneliness and spiritual desolation. The animated body of this artwork reflects Bacon’s fascination with classical and Christian imagery, exemplified in this instance by the figure’s pose which resembles the religious imagery of the suffering Christ.

The vulnerable position of the artwork’s subject, caged and exposed, almost dehumanized by his lack of identity, suggests of the countless psychological traumas of modern life.

DIGGING BOY

Eric Fischl’s sublimations on mylar with pins on paper give an artistic approach to the thesis of human portrayals. Fischl explores the psyche of interpretation- of how we see ourselves versus the image we portray to those around us.  He emphasizes this in the stacked translucent layers of images. The artworks are interpreted narratives that focus on the characters in the story.

Ever-present is Fischl’s disconnection of the characters in a society that does not support the collective. There is a selfless pose that is contradicted by an external posture. Body language reads louder than the internal dialogue of the mind’s constant chatter of self. In the artwork, how we perceive our own actions might not adequately reflect the reality of a dominant disposition seen by others. Their relations are unknown creating plots and tales foretold only by the viewing audience, making elaborate connections where none might exist.

Ranging from 24-ct gold glazes to three different types of bronze patina – pearly white, traditional bronze, and highly polished bronze – Estella Fransbergen female form driven sculptures range in color as well as aesthetic, giving off energies that can stretch the spectrum from elegant and regal to naturalized earthen tones.  

In her metaphorical forms, she uses the torso to represent nature, adorned with feathers, branches, leaves, semi-precious gems, and rare stones that have formed over millions of years. 

By channeling ancient science, she can elegantly recount that each stone has a symbolic meaning, and our eyes detect the unique beauty of what lies within each.

Marlene Rose's work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both ancient and modern.  Each piece is hand cast in sand from molten glass in a spectacular process of heat and light. They celebrate the unique properties of glass, of transparency, shine, and reflection. And because these are cast objects, they hold in their form the memory of the shapes and textures of the materials that formed them; they are fine-grained, rugged, or smooth, transparent, or translucent, colored, or clear.

Mr. Brainwash wrangles with our collective psyche to commandeer our mind’s eye as he thrusts forward a vivacious encounter of his fragmented explosions of popular culture psychedelia. The showmanship and personality flows from hand to canvas in such an unequivocal way, that nothing is obscured in the transmission of transcendental pop art pizzazz.  The viewer steps into an alternative macrocosm of bold color, graffiti style markings, and splatter paint pièce de resistance.  Black stencils, silkscreened iconology, and audacious street art aesthetics gyrate and pulse within an indefatigable composition.

In Men in Water, Fischl’s almost-nude subjects bare large amounts of skin, leaving them vulnerable exposing their core’s truth.  In Man Woman and Boy, the ocean breeze flutters the blouse of the woman, while the boy to the left of the composition enjoys an innocent day at the beach.  Their relations are unknown creating plots and tales foretold only by the viewing audience, making elaborate connections where none might exist. The audiences’ role connects the subjects in a visual approach while the artist’s physical layers of transparent mylar build physical levels to the storyline. 


NFT BUDDHA BLESSINGS DOMINATE  

RETRO VIDEO GAMES 

  

-By Diego Dietrich 

On May 3, 2012, the first one-off N.F.T. was created in New York, but it was the sale of Beeple’s “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” that was auctioned at Christie’s on March 11, 2021, almost nine years to the day of that first NFT, that sold for over $69 Million USD, launching this new digital proof of ownership into a mass market frenzy. 

Super Buddha, an internationally recognized contemporary artist who calls Miami, Florida home has positioned himself into the lead of contemporary artists transitioning into the N.F.T. Blockchain. Coming off a highly successful launch of new N.F.T.s at NFT BAZL, Super Buddha is now partnering with Fort Lauderdale’s own New River Fine Art for an exclusive launch of 3 new N.F.T.s on August 13, 2021.  These new N.F.T.s flip the script on gaming by animating his 32-bit buddha as a token of enlightenment that brings blessing to retro-inspired video game worlds. 

These highly anticipated gaming culture, crypto-native, and culturally relevant N.F.T.s by Super Buddha highlight his love for 1980’s and 90’s video game nostalgia and help bring a positive message to the impassioned contexts of gaming.  

As a non-native Chinese artist living in Shanghai, Super Buddha began creating art in a hybrid environment of new and old, where the constant influx of Western pop culture influences clashed with the strict and ridged ways of the Hukou System. Coming of age as one of the pioneers of the Graffiti scene in Shanghai, Super Buddha found himself straddling two very distinct artworlds - the iconic Eastern Art and the Urban Art Culture.  Being one of the first artists to tag buildings in Shanghai, he risked life and limb to help establish a new style of street art that did not yet exist in this heavily populated area of China.  

Lisa Burgess, President of New River Fine Art proudly remarks that “Super Buddha has a unique ability to tell a story in the most interesting of ways. On the surface, his N.F.T.’s are inspired by retro video games and full of positive messaging. However, there are underlying narratives that are influenced by modern advances like cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.  Deep within these plots come a more vocal examination and analysis of international political climates like the threat of government interference on autonomous decentralizations, and the consequences of oppressive regimes. In the end, the juxtaposition of good and evil on his signature character, ‘Super Buddha’, reinforces a mental exercise we can all practice - Reject the impulses of materiality while reflecting on life lessons with upbeat gusto.”

Super Buddha’s lighthearted artwork features Buddha as a contemporary spokesperson that captivates the audience with witty one-liner blessings.   Exhibited as a repetitive and reductively minimalistic bust of a bubbly cheeked, straight teethed, and large-eyed figure, this bald Chosen One is eternally cheery with his signature long earlobes that symbolize a conscious rejection of the material world in favor of a more spiritual enlightenment. 

In Super Buddha World: Forbidden City, the first of the three new N.F.T.s, we witness Super Buddha, complete with his cape and smilingly ambitiously, crushes and destroys negativity through superpower strength that seems to gain forte in a certain crypto world tenacity, as he navigates his way through temples and avoids the pop-up pitfalls.  Exploding scrolls of Envy, Jealousy, Self-Doubt, and Negative Thoughts, Super Buddha is on a quest for spiritual teachings.  

Buddha Man is a clear example of multilayered content.  In the N.F.T., the floating deity head devours the Bitcoin balls and gains super strength gulping down the dollar sign money bags while avoiding the bad vibe ghosts. When the red ghosts turn blue, Buddha Man swallows them down.   But not all as it appears. There is a subtle, but evident social / political context waiting to be discovered. In the storyline, Super Buddha has used his main characters to show a clear correlation between how the Chinese government is currently treating crypto miners and the hunger they have for freedom, while being chased and prosecuted by their oppressors. In the N.F.T. narrative, the bitcoins enable Buddha Man to turn the tables on his tyrannical antagonists.  The artist has made this intentionally clear with clever symbols and moves that speak volumes of today’s international cultural climate. Memorable Mottos like, “Your thoughts become your reality”, “Be Grateful”, and “Do it out of Love” appear like welcomed pop-up banners of positive reinforcements as Buddha Man stays the course in the most maze-more-izing of ways. 

Buddhas Grand Blessings (Shanghai Edition) mimics the free roaming, role-playing, and first-person perspective games. Grey and anonymous people wait for Super Buddha to ‘bless’ them with enlightenment by awakening their spirituality, activating their colorful chakras, and give them purpose through healing.  Super Buddha imagines this bestowment of wisdom as a counteracting weapon to the current video game controversies of addiction, aggression, and violence.  

Super Buddha sees his artwork as a positive propulsion strategy to spread the message that there should be positivity and consciousness in every facet of life. "I see so many things wrong on the spiritual and humanistic level, so my art's intent is to shed more light on consciousness and provide good fortune to everyone,” says Super Buddha.

Tuesday Torres

A spotlight on Gustavo Torres’ sculptures during this early weekday morning.  Notice the details in the castings.

Gustavo Torres began sculpting at a very young age in Mexico, training with accomplished artists. Torres left Mexico after receiving his BFA to pursue a career in art in the United States. Mainly influenced by Alberto Giacometti as well as the Nuns of Guadalajara, Torres is both a talented visual artist and a master craftsman, whose visual imagery reflects the quiet, deep spirit of an ancient culture.

His experiences while attending a private Catholic school as a child had great impact on his early art education, and religious symbols were his subjects during these formative years.

Torres' style is both primitive and abstract and he looks to create a ''spiritual balance'' in his art. He strives to elevate the human spirit by using primitive and natural forms reminiscent of Mayan and Spanish cultures.



We would like to announce the arrival of new sculptural dresses by international artist, Estella Fransbergen. They are gorgeous!!!!

73.50 x 57.50 x 3 in

Fischl was born in 1948 in New York City and grew up in the suburbs of Long Island. He began his art education in Phoenix, Arizona where his parents had moved in 1967. He attended Phoenix College and earned his B.F.A. from the California Institute for the Arts in 1972. He then spent some time in Chicago, where he worked as a guard at the Museum of Contemporary Art. In 1974, he moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to teach painting at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Fischl had his first solo show, curated by Bruce W. Ferguson, at Dalhousie Art Gallery in Nova Scotia in 1975 before relocating to New York City in 1978.  Fischl's paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints have been the subject of numerous solo and major group exhibitions and his work is represented in many museums, as well as prestigious private and corporate collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modem Art in New York City, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, St. Louis Art Museum, Louisiana Museum of Art in Denmark, Muse Beaubourg in Paris, The Paine Weber Collection, and many others. Fischl has collaborated with other artists and authors, including E.L. Doctorow, Allen Ginsberg, Jamaica Kincaid, Jerry Saltz and Frederic Tuten.



HAPPY JULY 4th

Abstract concepts blend (im)perfectly into the iconic bust of one of the most influential and controversial presidents, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln had to navigate the uncharted waters and harness unprecedented change in a very formative time of U.S. History. Abstract thoughts, concepts, and notions were explored by many important politicians, activists, scholars, and philosophers to create the fundamental building blocks of our great nation. 

Andrew Cotton celebrates this historical and leading figure through his signature split portrait series, juxtaposing abstract expressionism into realism.

Juneteenth

June 19th, is now the 12th federal holiday. Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to enslaved Black people in Galveston, Texas — two months after the Confederacy had surrendered. That was also about 2 1/2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in the Southern states.

It is the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day was created in 1983.

As we reflect on this holiday and this wonderful and federally sanctioned celebration, we think of the artist, Purvis Young and his social and political artistic commentary on the civil rights and urban violence.

~

Image:

Purvis Young (1943 - 2010)

Battle for Freedom, Circa 1990

Paint on panel with wood frame

48 x 35 in

Metaphysical confrontations of supernatural spirits, demons and angles have battled in the heavens and in the depths of hell, fighting over humans’ well-being. And yet man’s physical altercations in the 1950’s and 60’s Civil Rights movement protests illustrate that the war between good and evil has been with us in many forms for over a millennium. There will always be the do-gooders- yellow figures, as well as the harsh and terrible troublemakers- black silhouettes, fighting over mankind; each with their own agenda. The constant resurrection of goodness, not that of viciousness and evil, speaks the deepest truth about our world and our lives. It is said that good always triumphs over evil. Capturing a biblical war, the painting evokes a classic renaissance aesthetic. Evocative of “The Triumph of the Genius of Destruction” by, Mihály Zichy, painted in 1878 the “Battle for Freedom” by Young has a similar struggle being portrayed. With affixed found objects as sidebar comments on the gestalt of the painting’s meaning, the pool of blood on the bottom part of the painting continues to rise as the slaughter persists. However, it does appear the good, once again has the upper hand as mankind is again on the precipice of peril.

Andrew Cotton

Frida, 2021

Mixed Media

60 x 48 x 3 in

Originally from North London, Cotton received his art education at the prestigious Central St. Martins School of Art in Holborn, London. His work is now found in galleries throughout the US, luxury hotels, corporate headquarters, and private residences. 

Although there is an edgy style that spans his repertoire of contemporary portraits, urban landscapes, and abstract explorations, there is also a certain authenticity that dates back generations. Cotton’s father and grandfather owned a printing company in East London doing printing and design work for large retail and clothing stores. Cotton grew up seeing first-hand the techniques of block, offset, silkscreen, and commercial printing processes and pulls direct inspiration from those early formative years through his own use of wheat pasting, paper collage, and large-scale Xerox prints.

Cotton’s signature raw aesthetic gained notoriety in the art circles of East Hampton. Working in contemporary portraiture, abstract painting and text driven proses, his visual vocabulary expanded.

Currently, his artwork has been represented in contemporary galleries in the US and he has been showcased at international art fairs. 


NEW DAMIEN HIRST AVAILABLE 

HENI Leviathan was delighted to release a set of eight cherry blossom prints by Damien Hirst, The Virtues, published by HENI Editions. The eight prints are each titled after one of The Eight Virtues of Bushidō according to Nitobe Inazō – Justice, Courage, Mercy, Politeness, Honesty, Honor, Loyalty, Control.

In 1900 Nitobe Inazō published a book, Bushidō: The Soul of Japan, which narrates for Western audiences the samurai code of ethics known as Bushidō. According to Nitobe, Bushidō literally translates to ‘Military-Knight-Ways’ and lists the ways in which fighting Japanese nobles were expected to maintain themselve

in their daily and vocational lives. In Nitobe’s account this code is divided into eight virtues, which are responsible for customs such as the tea ceremony and behavior like tranquility even in the face of danger. Nitobe has stated his intention was to unveil the cultural similarities between Japan and the West, effectively concluding ‘that there are no East or West as far as human beings are concerned’.

Referencing Impressionism, Pointillism and Action Painting, the Cherry Blossoms are about the spontaneous joy of spring. Damien Hirst said “Cherry Blossoms are about beauty and life and death. They are extreme – there is something hopeful yet hopeless about them. They are art but taken from nature. They are about desire and how we process love and why we need it, but also these prints are about the momentary, the insane transience of beauty – a tree in full crazy blossom against a clear blue sky. How can you argue with that? It has been so good to make these prints, to be completely lost in color for a while. Blossoms are optimistic and bright yet fragile, just like we are, and I hope that The Virtues can remind us to always try and get the most from life.”

“At first glance, my pictures seem well behaved, as if – that is a still life, O.K. But these things have such crazy give-and-take that I feel they get really very wild” T.Wesselmann

Wesselmann is considered one of the major artists of New York Pop Art, along with Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.

 Wesselmann rejected Abstract Expressionism and made collages and assemblages that incorporated everyday objects and advertising ephemera.

The artist’s works are in major private, public, and corporate collections nationally and internationally, including the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., among others.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!

 Stop by New River Fine Art this holiday weekend. We are open all three days.

 ~

 Andy Warhol’s 1981 “Myths” portfolio is among the artist’s most sought-after print series. 

The 10 silkscreens showcase a variety of fictional characters, from Uncle Sam to Santa Claus and Superman, that Warhol viewed as essential components of American culture. While Warhol often used found images for his portraits of celebrities, he took a different approach for the “Myths” portfolio.

The Pop artist invited friends and actors into his studio to pose for his Polaroid camera, dressed up as Dracula, Uncle Sam, the mammy archetype, and the Wicked Witch of the West from the film The Wizard of Oz.

The resulting silkscreens are quintessential Warhol, showcasing the power and persuasion of popular culture.

Besner was born in 1965 in North Lancaster, Ontario. He completed his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Montreal in 1992. This early education allowed him to focus his thoughts on the nature of the city and its components.

 The artist is entirely open to the vibrations of contemporary society which he seeks to remodel in new forms of plasticity, hovering somewhere between the figurative and the abstract. His aim is not to create an ideal or to reproduce nature, but rather to give form to the energy emanating from the metaphysics of human activity.


NEW INSTALL WITH JENNIFER JL JONES

@NewRiverFineArt is so excited to see the final installation of the 90-inch painting by @JenniferJLJonesStudios …This large painting is on a lift and covers the T.V.

Great installation and happy clients.



NEW ARRIVAL

Tom Wesselmann

At first glance, my pictures seem well behaved, as if – that is a still life, O.K. But these things have such crazy give-and-take that I feel they get really very wild” – T.W.

Like many artists of the 1950s and 1960s, Tom Wesselman responded to postwar consumerism by incorporating elements of popular culture into his paintings. Unlike Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein, however, Wesselman was less concerned with criticizing or celebrating these aspects of contemporary life and more interested in the formal characteristics that these references brought to his work.

Tom Wesselmann is considered one of the major artists of New York Pop Art, along with Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. 

Best known for his 1960s series “Great American Nude,” which featured flat figures in an intense palette of red, white, blue, and other patriotic colors, Wesselmann, in an effort to reject Abstract Expressionism, made collages and assemblages that incorporated everyday objects and advertising ephemera.

Being a teenager in East London during the graffiti boom, Cotton was immediately drawn to the pioneers of the UK graffiti scene. But, wanting to develop his career as an international artist, he found himself residing in New York City at the early age of 24. Here he found inspiration in the DIY aesthetic of the street art market.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SALVADOR DALI!!!

May 11, 1904

Salvador Dali was a Spanish surrealist artist renowned for his technical skill, precise draftsmanship, and the striking and bizarre images in his work.

Born in Figueres, Catalonia, Dalí received his formal education in fine arts in Madrid. Influenced by Impressionism and the Renaissance masters from a young age, he became increasingly attracted to Cubism and avant-garde movements.  He moved closer to Surrealism in the late 1920s and joined the Surrealist group in 1929, soon becoming one of its leading exponents. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931, and is one of the most famous Surrealist paintings. Dalí lived in France throughout the Spanish Civil War (1936 to 1939) before leaving for the United States in 1940 where he achieved commercial success.

La Femme aux Cheveux d'or et son Garde, 1967

Ink and Watercolor

12.75 x 17.75 in

La Femme aux Cheveus d'or et son Garde is a unique watercolor and ink on paper executed in 1967. Signed, lower right. The work relates to the frontispiece for Poemes Secret, a suite of 18 etchings commissioned by Pierre Argillet based on the writings of Guillaume Apollinaire, a French writer important to the literary development of the Surrealism movement. In this work, Dali illustrates the sensual poems Apollinaire wrote in love letters he sent to the schoolteacher Madeleine Pagès from the battle trenches of World War I. A bare breasted Madelaine is featured with an appendage supported by a crutch, her golden tresses cascading down her back as a guard (presumably Apollinaire) wearing a flamboyantly plumed hat, stands watch next to her with spear in hand.

Happy Birthday Keith Haring!

 May 4, 1958

Keith Allen Haring was an American artist whose pop art emerged from the New York City graffiti subculture of the 1980s. His animated imagery has "become a widely recognized visual language". Much of his work includes sexual allusions that turned into social activism by using the images to advocate for safe sex and AIDS awareness. In addition to solo gallery exhibitions, Haring participated in renowned national and international group shows such as documenta in Kassel, the Whitney Biennial in New York, the São Paulo Biennial, and the Venice Biennale. The Whitney Museum held a retrospective of his art in 1997.

Meet & Greet

Marlene Rose's work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both ancient and modern. When casting sculptures she incorporates relics of modern life, interesting objects that have been cast away, industrial waste items that seem to unite present and past.

In the end, the completed piece transcends the sensibility of mere time. Each piece is hand cast in sand from molten glass in a spectacular process of heat and light.

Join New River Fine Art on May 1, 2021 from 4 – 9 pm, for an intimate Meet & Greet evening with glass artist Marlene Rose as we unveil her new collection.

Meet the artist one-on-one and be the first to see her newest sandcast glass works of art.

ANDREW COTTON

Pop Iconology allows us to reference a culture in such a way that visual familiarity, recognition, and acceptance is cemented through relatable imagery.  Styles, Movements, Aesthetics are all tools that artist, Andrew Cotton uses in his contemporary street portraits that give us a hybrid model of duality. From splatter-painted Pollock to Graffiti styled Basquiat, Cotton separates his subject in two; part anatomically correct portraiture juxtaposed with the preferred visual nomenclature of such identify. We see a split personality, the outward appearance and the inner (conceptual) appearance – simultaneously of these chosen movie stars, artist, musician, actresses, and celebrities, civic leaders, and poets.

Originally from London, Andrew Cotton now calls South Florida home. His edgy style spans contemporary portraits, urban landscapes, and abstract explorations.  As an underground artist in Brooklyn, Cotton's work is now found in galleries throughout the US, luxury hotels, corporate headquarters, and private residences.

Cotton received his art education at the prestigious Central St. Martins School of Art in Holborn, London.

 New River Fine Art is proud to be showing the new work by Andrew Cotton.

Earth Day, founded in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, a junior senator from Wisconsin, inspired 20 million Americans — at the time, 10% of the total population of the United States — to take to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate against the impacts of 150 years of industrial development which had left a growing legacy of serious human health impacts.

In 1990, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage.

Part Venn Diagrams, part Executive Office white board Product Flow Mapping, and part Conceptual Mind Charting, Murphy delivers a mélange of artworks that dives deep into the subconsciousness.

Brendan Murphy has eloquently blended abstract and figurative forms to impress upon the viewer a sense of universal understanding through realized common-grounds and optimistic channels of philosophical revelations. Incontestable associations of mind and matter manifest artistic driven thoughts connecting man to man, man to the universe, and man to cosmic existentialism.

The flow charts of rerouted arrows that point elements to undiscovered epiphanies to the trilateral assimilation of underlying emotions and swirling gyrations of yearnings in “Answers”, to the materiality of emotionally fluid (but physical) identifiers of neurophysiological behaviors and responses, Murphy’s art is but intuitive mark making by the artist that breathes life into manifestations of the NOW.

When people first view my work, I am often told they feel a “certain aliveness” inherent in the work itself. My goal as an artist is to inject life into whatever I can make. In simple terms to make the piece come alive. Each piece is hand cast from molten glass in a spectacular process of heat and light. The energy of this “Dangerous Dance of Creation” reflects in the finished work.

In the end, the work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both ancient and modern. They celebrate the unique properties of glass, of transparency, and shine and reflection.

Brendan Murphy

Math equations and philosophical mind-mapping written on stoic astronaut statues, inside massive thumbprints, and canvases as chalkboards, provide a means to an end for Brendan Murphy’s conceptual diagrams - a Beautiful Mind where universal communications of emotions, wants, and desires takes the form of Contemporary Art Cryptography.

Part Venn Diagrams, part Executive Office white board Product Flow Mapping, and part Conceptual Mind Charting, Murphy delivers a mélange of artworks that dives deep into the subconsciousness.

Brendan Murphy has eloquently blended abstract and figurative forms to impress upon the viewer a sense of universal understanding through realized common-grounds and optimistic channels of philosophical revelations. Incontestable associations of mind and matter manifest artistic driven thoughts connecting man to man, man to the universe, and man to cosmic existentialism.

The flow charts of rerouted arrows that point elements to undiscovered epiphanies in “Moment of Destiny” to the trilateral assimilation of underlying emotions and swirling gyrations of yearnings in “Answers”, to the materiality of emotionally fluid (but physical) identifiers of neurophysiological behaviors and responses, Murphy’s art is but intuitive mark making by the artist that breathes life into manifestations of the NOW.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vivamus leo ante, consectetur sit amet vulputate vel, dapibus sit amet lectus.

Murphy relies on phrases, idioms, and slogans, not the abstract gestures of painterly expressionism to impart his world of visual plotting. We follow the lines of text and letters as they churn and agitate our subconscious. Deep into the artworks’ composition we reflect on our own reality - insecurities, loves, passions, and longings, to find a constantly evolving truth. A circumstantial experience driven by impulsive stimuluses, this artistic candor is where dreams point to wants, and desires are wonders that leave us having more questions than artist-provided answers.

Words like “Dream” and “Love” are accentuated by “Believe” and “Power”, in the painting, “Twilight”, as the viewer wrestles to conceptualized script that relates to nothing and everything in an almost half empty, half full experience.  Our eyes spin and rotate within these powerful and almost prophetic phrases of eccentric exaltations. Neither pompous nor pretentious, the sayings by Murphy conjure an unconscious aura of inner peace that summons all of us through a string theory connectiveness.  Murphy provides foundations and formulas to show we are all one in the same - with similar needs, aspirations, longings, and unattainable hungers.

Brendan Murphy visualizes a world in which a spiral of unconnected words become a relevant mantra of contemporary culture. This new world, formed by expressing the inner thoughts into the outer atmospheres of each moment is now a summoned philosophical civil society where all beings possess the same primordial desires, but form connections with uninhibited aspects of personal reflections.

“Intuition Dream Candy Heart”, “Trust Lust Fascination Candy Heart”, “Passion Steal Love Candy Heart” are Pink Chrome hearts that reflects reality in such a hazy transient way that we see the momentary existences that struggle to materialize, like failed dreams and lost hopes, but the artist provides a verbal lifeline.  Murphy conveys positive thoughts through codes, equations, arrows, parentheses, numbers, and the like to entice us to follow through with those personal goals and aspirations; harness the love and passion we find in our hearts and fulfill our destiny.



Our artistic understanding of these seemingly random rambles radiates outward and ties us all into one universe where reciprocal acknowledgment, and admiration is a world Murphy provides not in jest or banter, but in earnest integrity. 

Brendan Murphy currently works from his home-based studios in Malibu, CA and Miami, FL. Notable mentors include Eric Fischl, David Salle, and Ross Bleckner. His work is represented in over 600 private collections and his new works are commonly featured at Art Fairs around the world through his gallery representation in the USA, Canada, Germany, Colombia, England, and Monaco.

New artwork by Brendan Murphy as his exhibiting debut with the gallery can be seen at New River Fine Art, 822 E. Las Olas, Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, Fl. 33496 Ph. 954-524-2100. www.newriverfineart.com

Purvis Young creates art from a gut instinct, using materials found from the streets of Miami’s inner city. The resulting work constitutes powerful and honest art of the last thirty years. Young’s work expresses his heartfelt concern for his community’s roots and lifelong friends. The abundance of pregnant women populating the neighborhood, the hustle, bustle and chaos in the street, the infusion of boat people, the trucks passing above on the elevated interstate, funerals, celebrations, wars, soldiers, and Blues music men populate his oeuvre.

Gustavo Torres gives his bronze sculptures, which resemble those of antiquity, the breath of life by capturing gestures such as the sway of a woman's hips, a figure’s glance or a dog's upturned ear. The rough finish on his sculpture invites touch and contemplation. "My goal is to capture the spirit of the form," he says. "You do this by using the least amount of material possible. This is the most difficult—finding the essence.

NEW ARRIVALS

New River Fine Art is super excited as we expect a wonderful shipment of Andy Warhol prints.

Known as “Sunday B. Morning” prints, these prints are recognized as authentic reproductions in Andy Warhol’s catalogue raisonne', with some of them being signed by Warhol himself using the phrase: “this is not me. Andy Warhol.”

In 1985, a third series was produced with a stamped signature and these became known as the European Artist’s Proof Editions.

These prints are made from reproductions of Warhol’s original silkscreens from 1967. They are stamped in blue ink on the back and are referred to as the Blue Ink series.

Their dimensions are 35.5 inches square and are printed on museum board/paper with high quality archival inks just like the originals.

These Sunday B. Morning prints are produced with the same quality and integrity as Warhol’s original Flowers' screenprints.

Super Buddha is Now Available at New River Fine Art.


Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Super Buddha moved to the United States before settling in what he considers his "hometown" of Shanghai, China. It is here in Shanghai, Super Buddha attended high school and continued to pursue an Art & Design Degree.

While in China, he began obsessing with the unique style of Eastern Art and focused significantly on immersing himself into this distinct culture that he was encountering firsthand.

As an artist, Super Buddha embraced the rare and underground Urban/Contemporary art scene in Shanghai, where much of his influence would eventually stem from. He is currently credited as being one of the Pioneers of Street/ Urban / Graffiti Art in Shanghai.

Following his move to Miami, the artist continued developing his own signature style of good will and positive reinforcement.

His artworks radiate information that informs the viewer on the truths, and not the lies society has us believe and follow.

Playing with various political figures and world renown icons to deliver this distinct positive message, Buddha is trying to express to the viewer by attention through association.

The style and color choice of Super Buddha reflect ideologies and aesthetics of Pop Art with an influence in Urban Art.  Super Buddha's color choice is lively and eye-catching with an uplifting vibe.  He feels that positive vibrations are what the world needs today. 



Super Buddha has a wonderful article in Les Couleurs Magazine, March Edition.

Alex Gabriel Bernstein 

Steel Blue Circle

Cast and Cut Glass

Approx. 14 in. diam.

Alex Gabriel Bernstein presents a bold and refreshing exploration of visual form and storytelling through the art of glass. Bernstein skillfully combines metaphor with the impact and optical quality of glass.  His cast, carved, and polished glass sculptures provide the viewer with intimate narrative landscapes, drawn from light, form, and color. Alex explores ideas about the passage of time and the processes of creation and transformation.

The forms of Bernstein’s pieces, as well as the techniques he uses to work the glass, mirror processes in nature such as oxidation, erosion, growth, and decay. As a result, many of his pieces evoke images of flowing water, ice crystals, mountain peaks and jagged canyons, all structures that seem solid and unyielding but are in constant flux.  The work reflects his sense of exploration: an exquisitely cut geometric crystal sculpture set against a brutal, rusted steel backdrop, volcanic bursts of cut-glass spewing from a steel-encrusted base, layers of transparent color intermingling with ambient light. Alex’s sculptures reflect his feelings and sensitivity to others, curiosity, and enthusiasm for bringing new dimensions to his sculpture.

Others will seek to employ Alex’s techniques, but none will achieve the depth of expressionism, his ability to depict the emotions and responses that objects, and events arouse in him. This is the underlying strength of his work in glass.

Alex holds an M.F.A. in glass sculpture from the School for American Crafts at RIT.

Alex Gabriel Bernstein grew up in a creative environment with access to many of the artists of the American studio glass movement. As the child of two established glass artists, William and Katherine Bernstein, the beautiful surroundings of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina where they lived played almost as much of a part in his inspired upbringing as did the breadth of teachers around him.

Alex studied psychology at the University of North Carolina in Asheville and worked at a children’s psychiatric hospital before making the decision to pursue his artistic endeavors full time. He received a Master of Fine Arts from the Rochester Institute of Technology’s School for American Crafts and went on to teach at the Rochester Institute of Technology, the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Penland School of Crafts, and The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass.

Most recently Alex was the Department Head of Glass at the Worcester Center for Crafts in Massachusetts, but he made the decision to return to his hometown, Asheville, NC, in 2007 to set up a studio and focus on creating his own work full-time.

Award winning artist Alex Gabriel Bernstein presents a bold and refreshing exploration of visual form and storytelling.

Bernstein skillfully combines metaphor with the power and sensuality of sculpted glass. His cast, carved and polished glass sculptures provide the viewer with intimate narrative landscapes, drawn from light, form and color.

 Alex explores ideas about the passage of time and the processes of creation and transformation.

The forms of Bernstein’s pieces – as well as the techniques he uses to work the glass – mirror processes in nature, such as oxidation, erosion, growth and decay. As a result, many of his pieces evoke images of flowing water, ice crystals, mountain peaks and jagged canyons – all structures that seem solid and unyielding but are actually in constant flux.

The work reflects his sense of exploration: an exquisitely cut geometric crystal sculpture set against a brutal, rusted steel backdrop, volcanic bursts of cut glass spewing from a steel-encrusted base, layers of transparent color intermingling with ambient light.

 Alex’s sculptures reflect his feelings and sensitivity to others, curiosity, and enthusiasm for bringing new dimensions to his sculpture.


 Salvador Dali

La Femme aux Cheveux d'or et son Garde
1967
Ink and Watercolor
12.75 x 17.75 in

 

Special to our collectors and clients...

"La Femme aux Cheveus d'or et son Garde" is a unique and ORIGINAL watercolor and ink on paper executed in 1967.

The artwork is signed on lower right.


**The work relates to the frontispiece for Poemes Secret, a suite of 18 etchings commissioned by Pierre Argillet based on the writings of Guillaume Apollinaire, a French writer important to the literary development of the Surrealism movement.

In this work, Dali illustrates the sensual poems Apollinaire wrote in love letters he sent to the schoolteacher Madeleine Pagès from the battle trenches of World War I.  

A bare breasted Madelaine is featured with an appendage supported by a crutch, her golden tresses cascading down her back as a guard (presumably Apollinaire) wearing a flamboyantly plumed hat, stands watch next to her with spear in hand.

Pierre Argillet, Paris, France

What more can we say about the elegance of Hunt Slonem’s Golden Opal glass sculpture? This work contains 24K gold, which is overlaid into the glassmaking process, requiring additional layering of glass. But the extra work is well worth the effort. Backdropped by the gorgeous Jennifer JL Jones Earthy Delight series of small paintings.




In the summer of 1946 to Vallauris, at the age of 64, Picasso and then lover, Françoise Gilot and companion, Louis Fort attended the annual pottery exhibition in Vallauris. Charmed by the quality of ceramics exhibited by artisans from the area, Picasso would go onto met and befriend Madoura Pottery studio owners, Georges and Suzanne Ramié. Picasso would return to Vallauris in the summer of 1947, and Georges and Suzanne Ramié were very hospitable to Picasso, and even put all their other studio artisans at his disposal. Over the next 25 years Picasso would create over 3,500 plates, vases, pitchers, and other forms. Picasso would work with Madoura Studio until around the time of the artist’s death in 1973.

Such was his eccentric life; Picasso won a goat in a local French lottery. Pablo would describe at length how he adored this goat, regardless of its unruly behavior. As someone who struggled with formality himself, Picasso may have seen an element of himself in this maverick animal. It is believed that although the goat had arrived in his possession purely by fortune, the artist had desired having a goat as a pet since all the way back in 1904.

Francis Bacon (28 October 1909 – 28 April 1992) was an Irish-born British figurative painter known for his raw, unsettling imagery. Focusing on the human form, his subjects included crucifixions, portraits of popes, self-portraits, and portraits of close friends, with abstracted figures sometimes isolated in geometrical structures. Rejecting various classifications of his work, Bacon claimed that he strove to render "the brutality of fact." He built up a reputation as one of the giants of contemporary art with his unique style. Bacon said that he saw images "in series", and his work, which numbers c. 590 extant paintings along with many others he destroyed, typically focused on a single subject for sustained periods, often in triptych or diptych formats.

Uncle Sam from Myths (FS II. 259) (6/200), 1981

Screen-print on Lenox Museum Board

38 x 38 in

 Now Available at New River Fine Art

Andy Warhol’s 1981 “Myths” portfolio is among the artist’s most sought-after print series.

“Everybody has their own America, and then they have pieces of a fantasy America that they think is out there but they can’t see,” the artist once observed. “You live in your dream America that you’ve custom-made from art and schmaltz and emotions just as much as you live in your real one.”

Nowhere is this national fantasy clearer than in Warhol’s Myths series of from the early 1980s.

 The 10 silkscreens showcase a variety of fictional characters, from Uncle Sam to Santa Claus and Superman, that Warhol viewed as essential components of American culture.

 While Warhol often used found images for his portraits of celebrities, he took a different approach for the “Myths” portfolio. The Pop artist invited friends and actors into his studio to pose for his Polaroid camera, dressed up as Dracula, Uncle Sam, the mammy archetype, and the Wicked Witch of the West from the film The Wizard of Oz.

DM for Details!

Reflections on Conversation 1990 is from a group of seven Reflections prints which Lichtenstein worked on at Tyler Graphics in Mount Kisco, New York during 1989 and 1990. These prints are recorded in the artist’s catalogue raisonné and described as combining ‘lithography, screenprint, and relief with collage and embossing. Swan Engraving, Bridgeport, Connecticut, processed the magnesium plates.’ (Corlett 1994, pp.221–6).

Mao Zedong, also known as Chairman Mao, was a Chinese communist revolutionary who was the founder of the People's Republic of China (PRC), which he ruled as the chairman of the Chinese Communist Party from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976. Ideologically a Marxist–Leninist, his theories, military strategies, and political policies are collectively known as Maoism.

Andy Warhol based his 10 screen-prints that comprise the present work on the official portrait of the Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong (1893-1976), that was illustrated on the cover of the widely circulated 1966 publication Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong, also known as the Little Red Book. Party members were strongly encouraged to carry a copy with them as it contained the foundations of Maoist ideology.

Happy President’s Day from New River Fine Art.

 The holiday is the combination of days that originally had been set aside to honor Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln but has become much more — it is a chance to remember each of the individuals who has held the office, and the sacrifices they and their families have made to ensure our country’s institutions continue to function in an orderly manner, even when they have confronted tests few could have imagined.

Although most federal state and local office may be closed, NRFA is open! As you and your family enjoy the day, stop by the gallery to see the final days of HUNT SLONEM: Through the Looking Glass exhibition.

Dichroic Paintings

Slonem’s new dichroic painting series emerged, quite literally, through the looking glass.

The lush, dimensional line work of Slonem’s oil paintings led him to explore the layered complexity of dichroic glass.

Originally created by NASA as a coating for space-bound scientific instruments, the luminescent dichroic coating serves as an undulating canvas for the artist to carve his form into.

Presented in a custom-made ocular glass frame design sourced from the 18th century.

Dichroic glass is glass that has been coated with metal oxides in vapor form. The identifying feature of dichroic glass is the two-color shift depending on the lighting.

To make dichroic glass, the glass is placed in an airless vacuum chamber, then quartz crystal and metal oxides are heated to a vaporous form using electronic beam gun and the glass passes through the environment of vapor, coating the face and creating the color.

ALL EARS

"All Ears" was the beginning of Hunt Slonem‘s long-term vision for monumental outdoor garden artworks.

Glass Mosaic, Fiberglass Form
73 x 36 x 40 in

The artist revisits the mosaic medium for the first time in 20 years.

“All Ears”, the six-foot pink bunny debuting at New River Fine Art, was fabricated by master artisans.

Comprised of hand-cut and formed Italian sheet glass in iridescent pink tones, the work achieves a most unique light quality that is at once brilliant in reflectivity and nuanced in its depth of color. 

The sculptural form itself was based off Slonem’s new blown glass sculptures.

BUNNY PAINTINGS

In the new exhibition at New River Fine Art, Hunt Slonem captivates the audience-goers with his signature abstract and painterly aesthetic. 

Now, he mixes his oil paintings within the new realm of Glass. His beloved bunnies are catapulted into a new 21st Century Pop World where form is ever-flowing, materials are explored, and statements are BOLD.

"...In American Art and American Literature, rabbits are often used as a symbol of fertility or rebirth. The species' role as a prey animal with few defenses evokes vulnerability and innocence.  Hence, the rabbit in Slonem’s new collection is the perfect visual paradigm and animal personification to explore because Hunt and his audiences alike are fully aware of this animal’s unique historical relevance and symbolic attributes."

New River Fine Art is proud to be presenting this wonderful artwork by Roberto Matta for acquisition. Created in 1950, this work addresses need for civility and ethics in a time when we needed society to pay attention to the road ahead.

The 1950's were an important decade and Matta saw the struggles of these times in his metaphysical landscapes as well as reality.

Please contact us with any inquires and questions.

This artwork, by Matta was featured in the State Hermitage Museum's exhibition Roberto Matta: The Fourth Dimension, September 2018 - February 2019.

Inscription reads: "It is not a question of Superman; but of integreal the possible; dialectical humanism; humanity must be the synthesis".

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Archives de L'Oeuvre de Matta issued Feb. 2000 and signed by Germana Ferrari-Matta.

Will be included in the forthcoming Matta Catalogue Raisonné, being prepared by Germana Ferrari – Matta.

Purvis Young (1943 - 2010) 

Angel and Boats | Circa 1980's | Acrylic on board | 49 x 48 x 1 in

Purvis Young creates art from a gut instinct, using materials found from the streets of Miami’s inner city.  The resulting work constitutes powerful and honest art of the last thirty years.  Young’s work expresses his heartfelt concern for his community’s roots and lifelong friends.  The abundance of pregnant women populating the neighborhood, the hustle, bustle and chaos in the street, the infusion of boat people, the trucks passing above on the elevated interstate, funerals, celebrations, wars, soldiers, and Blues music men populate his oeuvre.

This triangular composition elongates the angelic figure in the center while giving linear exaggerations to the rolling waves that toss the boats that long for safe passage.

Slaves Ships guided by divine intervention making their journey to eternal peace and away from the suffering of colonial capitalism, captivate the imagination of this great and beloved Florida artist.


Mr. Brainwash

NEW ARRIVAL

The brightly colored artwork by Mr. Brainwash contains imagery of Mickey Mouse from Disney, Mr. Peanut of Planter Peanuts, Captain America from Marvel Comics, Keith Haring’s heart, and other elements of Pop Art fandom can be seen in this new arrival at New River Fine Arts.

Around 1992, Damien Hirst began to experiment with spin art.

He was inspired by memories of the technique of spin painting which he saw as a child on the BBC's Blue Peter. The technique involved the spinning of the canvas on a potter's wheel and the pouring of household emulsion onto the spinning canvas to create a startling array of splatted color.

Hirst eventually commissioned the fabrication of a personal spin art machine for his studio in Berlin.  

This new technique introduced an element of chance vs. the formulaic painting process of his earlier work- dots. 

However, it still maintained the underlying and fundamental Concept of mechanical intervention that he continues to explore in his work.

Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol and grew up in Leeds. In 1984 he moved to London, where he worked in construction before studying for a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths college from 1986 to 1989. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 1995.

Since the late 1980’s, Hirst has used a varied practice of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing to explore the complex relationship between art, life and death. Explaining: “Art’s about life and it can’t really be about anything else … there isn’t anything else,” Hirst’s work investigates and challenges contemporary belief systems, and dissects the tensions and uncertainties at the heart of human experience.

New River Fine Art would like to give a huge "THANK YOU" to all our collectors, patrons, colleagues, friends, and family who attended the opening weekend events for the "HUNT SLONEM: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition at New River Fine Art.
 
HUNT SLONEM: Through the Looking Glass
Jan 22 - Feb 21, 2021

While Hunt Slonem may be a new name to many of our collectors, this American artist’s career and legacy are legendary.  Considered one of the great colorists of his time, Slonem’s Neo-Expressionist paintings have been collected by an astounding 85 museums internationally, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Prado Museum; Madrid; The Whitney Museum of American Art, NY and the Guggenheim Museum, NY to name but a few.
 


In "Through the Looking Glass", Slonem achieves a new level of mischievous maturity, evolving beyond the painterly renditions of his favorite flora and fauna.  He embarks on a journey that explore eccentric airs of contemporary art making venturing into uncharted mediums and sculptural fabrications.  From the appealing realm of glass and the soft aura of polished bronze to the glow of neon, Slonem translates his beloved bunnies into 21st Century Pop.

 


Hunt Slonem could have partnered with any of the numerous museums or galleries he has worked with to introduce his new media.  We at New River Fine Art are honored and humbled to have been awarded this unique opportunity to unveil his new work here in Ft. Lauderdale and on a world-wide stage.

OPENING JAN 22, 2021

New River Fine Art is pleased to announce “HUNT SLONEM: Through the Looking Glass”, a new collection of previously unreleased and trailblazing sculptural and two-dimensional artworks from contemporary artist, Hunt Slonem, debuting and running from January 22 – February 21, 2021 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

View the exhibition catalog here:

https://issuu.com/newriverfineart/docs/nrfa.hs.gallery.show.catalog_mid-res

“This new body of work was born out of these unexpected times,” said Slonem. “Given an opportunity to create work in an entirely new methodology, what has resulted is an artistic liberation of sorts. My established lexicon of forms has taken on new life in blown glass, in bronze, and other media, all in a visual culmination that is thrilling to me artistically. This moment in time has proven to be an impetus for an ever-expanding vocabulary of new work and I’m pleased to share it with you.”


NEON


“After Glow” (Red), “Hopscotch” (Yellow), and “Go Play” (Blue) are three six-foot neon sculptures that glow with an aura of playful and luminescent radiance. The neon bunnies are lambent lonesome lodestars, navigating through the three-dimensional repertoire. Larger than life, the Hunt-esque rabbits stand erect like facetious chaperons of this new Hyper-Wonderland.

With the acknowledgment that his iconic bunny forms are larger than life, Slonem’s new neon light sculptures are intended as a playful reinterpretation of his beloved rabbits. Each unique work in this exhibition is comprised of a custom powder-coated aluminum cabinet and delicate 12mm Italian neon tubing. For dramatic effect, hidden LED halo lighting is mounted behind the cabinet to create an ethereal glow.

“After Glow” (Red), “Hopscotch” (Yellow), and “Go Play” (Blue) are part of the upcoming “HUNT SLONEM: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition opening on Jan 22, 2021 at New River Fine Art.

 John Seery (born 1941) is an American artist who is associated with the lyrical abstraction movement. He was born in Maspeth, New York, was raised in Flushing, Queens, and as a teen, moved to Cincinnati, Ohio. Seery studied at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio from 1959 to 1963 then continued his studies at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and Ohio State University in Columbus. 

In 2010 Katie Donoghue interviewed John Seery for WhiteWall Magazine. When asked about his association with the Lyrical Abstraction Movement, he had this to say:

 “This period was not an act of contrivance by the artists. The name came from a collector named Larry Aldrich. Many at the time thought Lyrical Abstraction was reaction against some previous form of painting, but it was an affirmation of painting. Rather than attacking the painting from the outside, it was more of an entering into or inhabiting the painting.”

 Mamamita, a 57.5 x 52-inch acrylic on canvas, painted in 1975 is a prime example of the post Abstract Expressionist aesthetic Seery captured while following through on the sediments of the Ab Ex movement.

When it came to depicting Jesus Christ – a most appropriate subject this time of year, to be sure – Dalí’s penchant for seeing in a very special way didn’t disappoint.
In paintings by Salvador Dalí – all depict the image of Christ – his subject is either shown ascending toward heaven, or there’s a related detail expressing the feeling of ascension. Unlike most other famous paintings of Jesus through art history, Dalí showed absolutely no hint of pain, anguish, or despondency. Perhaps the best-known painting of Christ expressing the horror of crucifixion was that of Mathias Grunewald, in his gruesome The Crucifixion of Christ. El Greco showed the torturous crown of thorns, while Dalí’s favorite painter – Velasquez – portrayed a beautiful Christ form with the nails in his bloodied hands and feet, as well as His lanced right side. But Salvador Dalí’s vision was deliberately different. No nails. No thorns. Bo blood. No sense of pain or anguish. Instead, he chose to emphasize a feeling of triumph, of the victory of good over evil, and the ultimate beauty of Christ’s life and infinite meaning. What’s more, Dalí was especially interested in portraying the central significance of Christ’s time on earth – his Resurrection.

“Waltz of the Flowers”

Jennifer JL Jones

Here is the artist’s story of how this painting was born....so interesting!! @jenniferjljonesstudios

"Painting inspired by Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers” ... many layers and transformation led to what felt like a dance when listening to Tchaikovsky’s iconic Waltz of the Flowers. I often listen to orchestral music while painting ... this is a particular favorite of mine from the ballet The Nutcracker."

“Waltz Of The Flowers”

72” H x 60” W x 3”

Painting on Baltic Birch Wood Panel.
