Context Art Miami 2016: video paintings and flexible paper sculptures

art Basel: context art miami

Being a realist painter, contemporary shows like Context Art Miami rarely captivate me. There is plenty of weird work shown under the pretense of being great ART. A lot of it is not, in my opinion. I think it’s difficult to create a good work of art whether it’s abstract or realist, or somewhere in between. What excited me about this show, however, were two things: video paintings and flexible paper sculptures.

In this short video you’ll see some innovative works – video paintings by Daniel Cherbuin and flexible paper sculptures by the Chinese artist Li Hongbo. Enjoy!
