This winter Pontone Gallery exhibits at the prestigious Art Miami fair. The gallery showcases a selection of its international artists, who range across the fields of painting, lightbox and sculpture. Common to all is a deep immersion in and mastery of their chosen practice.
Korean sculptor, Hwang Seontae, makes lightboxes. Constructed from etched glass and concealed LED lighting, these are meticulously crafted images of still contemplation.
Malcolm Liepke, an American artist, is a painter of a particular world, a 'demi-monde', inhabited by mostly young and attractive subjects, who project an air of self-absorption and watchfulness.
Matteo Massagrande is a critically acclaimed Italian painter. He creates images of atmospheric architectural vistas and emotionally significant landscapes.
Born in 1958, Yigal Ozeri is an Israeli artist based in New York City. He is a ‘photo-realist’ painter, in particular of beautiful women in landscapes.
With a background in film and design, Polish painter, Jarek Puczel, found his vocation in painting and for the last fifteen years has worked prolifically, showing at many international art fairs and galleries.
Englishman Chris Rivers makes powerfully gestural oil paintings in a contemporary, Romantic idiom.
South Korean artist JIHI creates mixed media images on panel which, at first glance, seem to be simple, graffiti-like characters. These humble forms combine to create an allegory full of highly implicit symbols.
Throughout December Pontone Gallery will be running a parallel exhibition featuring these artists at its London space.
