Hi.

Welcome to the latest art to emerge from the contemporary visionaries as seen through the eyes of Platinum Cheese. 

Miaz Brothers and The Masters @ Fabien Castanier Gallery

Last month, the Miaz Brothers presented a radical new take on portraiture at Fabien Castanier Gallery. Working in tandem, the siblings conceptualized and created large-format pieces on canvas using aerosol paint. The Antimatter Series, as their body of work is known, has incorporated a diverse range of subjects, and for this exhibition they focused on figures from the Renaissance – the “Masters.” “We look to provide a visual experience that activates our awareness that compels the viewer to recognize and re-establish the limits of his or her own perception, to regain control of the real.”

With these evocative, ghost-like portraits, the brothers explore the notion of perception rather than representation. They have broken down the material – the details and the texture of faces and expressions – and literally blurred everything truly tangible about the image. Thus, the artists present the viewer with an exercise in memory and personal association, rendering the soul of the portrait rather than any concrete signifiers. Their paintings are ethereal and mysterious – stirring interpretations of familiar figures.

The exhibit runs through October 11th. Be sure to view these works in person, but until then enjoy a few opening night photos below via the gallery.
