Miami-based Yanira Collado is a conceptual and installation artist. Using found objects she makes three-dimensional collages that examine the layering process of memory and history. Pepe Mar, born in Mexico and now in Miami, combines assemblage, collage, and painting. His exuberant work explores a broad range of issues, including fashion, history, LGBTQ history, and science fiction. The exhibition also includes Tampa artist and professor emerita Mernet Larsen. She had created narrative paintings depicting hard-edged, enigmatic characters that inhabit uncanny worlds filled with tension and wry humor.
