Spinello Projects aims to initiate change in the cultural landscape of Miami as a gallery, design house and innovative platform for site-specific artworks and projects all wrapped into one. The venture was founded by Anthony Spinello in 2005 and prides itself on exhibiting innovative, intellectual artworks across all mediums
Spinello Projects is a playground for some of the top local and international artists producing groundbreaking experimental artworks. Featured artists include TYPOE, Sinisa Kukek and Antonia Wright. The gallery actually specialises in intelligent exhibitions of nomadic, unorthodox works that that are often unsuited to the traditional gallery space. Spinello Projects also promote their artists at international events including Art Basel Miami Beach and Art Los Angeles Contemporary and produce events such as Littlest Sister

Spinello Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring the works of Clara Varas. In Interior/Exterior, Varas presents a body of work that exists and plays in a space between abstraction and representation, between painting and sculpture. Interior/Exterior references both the self as well as physical space regarding the concept of home and the exploration of dwindling natural habitats. Landscapes in turmoil, strewn tropical foliage, remnants of dwellings and structure- there is a sense we are left with what comes after the tempest. Varas’ richly layered compositions tend to both resolve and dissolve. The painterly marks lend themselves to impressions of flora and fauna, or sometimes suggestions of interiors- which Varas emphasizes by the placement of certain household objects conjuring up our visual memory as though to say; something once stood here, and this is what was left behind. Essential to her practice is paint, and its physical properties. To Varas, a painting’s support structure is just as important as its composition, materiality just as important as subject matter.
