Fans of geometric abstraction now can view works by gallery artist Israel Guevara in a super-sized version.
The Venezuelan-American artist recently dedicated eleven monumental aluminum panels painted in his brilliant color compositions on the exterior of CitiTower, a new 21-story luxury residential condominium on the shore of Lake Eola in Orlando. Florida.
Other paintings by Guevara grace the public spaces on the interior of the apartment building, the 10th-tallest structure in Orlando.
A blurb on the CitiTower website states “CitiTower turns living into a work of art. From our Bauhaus-inspired architecture and interior design to sculptures and exterior art panels, we want home to be an experience.”
An extensive selection of works by Guevara (Color + Geometry), a former architect who worked on such projects as the Arsht Center in downtown Miami as well as such other upscale projects as the Williams Island complex, currently are being exhibited at ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries in downtown Coral Gables, Florida.
“Guevara’s architectural background shows in the precision of each of his paintings and sculpture,” said gallery owner and director Virginia Miller. “He’s a master colorist and he lets his imagination run wild in the compositions of his art.”
Located at 169 Madeira Avenue, ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries is Greater Miami’s longest-established contemporary fine art gallery, now in its 44th year. A few of its more than 300 historic exhibitions are described under “Gallery”. The gallery is open to the public from 12 – -6 pm. Tuesday-Friday and by appointment. Receptions for the artist will be held from 6-10 p.m. every first Friday through March 2018.
