“Impressions of our Landscape”
Opening Reception: September, 27th, 2017, 6 pm
Primary is pleased to present “Impressions of our Landscape”, an exhibition of new paintings by Magnus Sodamin, the artist’s third solo show with the gallery.
Influenced by a lifetime of open-air exploration, this new body of work focuses on the diverse 83 acres of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, the artist’s year long residency at the Deering Estate and a period of research at the Artist in Residency in Everglades (AIRIE) program.
Reminiscent of impressionist methods, the paintings act as windows into the quiet solitude of nature. In recognition of time and beauty, Sodamin depicts a world overflowing with lavish flora, where light acts as an element of change, encouraging the viewer to honor our natural surroundings now before the moment is lost into an unfamiliar future.
“The Motion of Movements”
Opening April 22nd, 2017 at 7 pm
Miami, FL (April 10, 2017) – Opening April 22, 2017 at 7:00 PM PRIMARY is pleased to present “The Motion of Movements”, a group exhibition showcasing new works from Carlos Betancourt, Ronald Moran, Deon Rubi, Ben Pederson, Wade Schaming, Gavin Perry, Manny Prieres, & Keenen/Riley.
“Extraordinary” might be an understatement in describing the times we are living in. Through an ongoing series of internal conversations here at Primary, we have continued to inform each other about the nature of movement(s). There is no question that momentum is building worldwide, we remain curious about the constant bending of the checks and balances that govern our lives.
