Jean-Pierre Roy’s new body work evolves his stirring, rich paintings, which blend geometric abstraction and figurative scenes. Recent works will be shown at the VOLTA NY fair, running in New York City from March 7-11. Roy was the cover artist for Hi-Fructose Vol. 37. In a statement, the show says that Roy “will continue to place figures in an optically loaded environment, allowing for the entropic confusion of historical painting tropes, non-spaciotemporal geometry, and figurative drama to play out against an arid, dystopian landscape.”
Yesterday, we brought you our highlights of UNTITLED art fair, SCOPE Miami Beach, Miami Project and Art on Paper. Today, we continue our coverage with one of the most popular fairs during the jam-packed Miami Art Week- PULSE Miami Beach. Despite the dreary Miami weather, PULSE was in high attendance and notable for its engaging and interactive installations in collaboration with Target that attracted art lovers of every age. Designed as a platform for new video and media art, “Target Too” combined items sold at Target with art- though some blasted it as a commercial “sell-out”, we couldn’t help but smile at some of the works on display like Daniel Rozin’s Insta-worthy “Troll Mirror”, a mirror made of hundreds of pink and green treasure trolls that reflected your silhouette as you moved around the piece. Take a look at more of our highlights from PULSE Miami Beach after the jump!
