Kevin Arrow: Things are good, but can always be better
Sept. 4 – Nov. 1, 2009
Opening reception: Wed., Sept. 9, 6-9 pm
Miami-based artist Kevin Arrow’s exhibition brings together multiple facets of artistic practice with a selection of paintings, drawings, and projected media, merged together in one space in an attempt to set up a lyrical dialogue between the object, the space and the viewer. Arrow’s work fuses his interest in obsolete media, archival tendencies, the ephemeral object, spirituality, music, and humor. He continually seeks to find the sublime within the mundane, and the mundane within the sublime experience as he investigates the interchangeability of both. Arrow has studied studio art, anthropology, Tibetan and Bhutanese design and painting, photography, and graphic design in the U.S. and India.
Arrow’s work is included in numerous public and private collections and has been featured in such exhibitions as his recent solo show Burning Bright at the Farside Gallery in Miami as well as numerous group exhibitions in South Florida and beyond, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; globeMiamiisland, Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach; HUMID, The Moore Space, Miami; Daystar (solo exhibition), Bas Fisher Invitational, Miami; Here and Now Festival, Commission in collaboration with DJ Le Spam and Hayley K. Downs, Miami Light Project; The Last Show, The House, Miami; This Side Towards Screen, Murray Guy Gallery, New York; Miami Contemporary: Making a Scene, Miami Freedom Tower; and Under the Influence, Girls Club, Ft. Lauderdale. His public art projects include a commission for Miami Beach Art in Public Places.
