    Rosenbaum Contemporary Revs Up for Art Miami 2018

    On December 4, the Rosenbaum Contemporary gallery will open its exhibit at Art Miami 2018 with a mammoth collection of Modern and Contemporary art masters.  All the works in the Rosenbaum Contemporary exhibit for Art Miami 2018 were hand-selected by gallery president Howard Rosenbaum and his staff.  They each reflect the pedigree of blue chip, museum quality artwork that is reflective of the gallery’s institutional integrity.

    The Dozen exhibition, on view at Rosenbaum Contemporary from October 11 through November 10, features new paintings by artist Thomas Hartmann along with works by 11 artists hand-selected by Hartmann from his master classes at the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg. The 11 artists have all been designated Meisterschüler by Hartmann—a title of distinction given to students at German art academies by their professors upon graduation in recognition of brillliant performance and the development of their own independent pictorial language. Of the 89 students Hartmann has taught since 2005, only 27 have earned this distinction.

     

    Founded in 1662, the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg is the oldest art academy in German-speaking Central Europe. Hartmann, who has received several awards including the Overbeck Prize for Fine Arts; the Art Prize for Artists of Düsseldorf, Germany; and the Wili Oltmanns Prize for Painting, Delmenhorst; and whose work has been shown throughout Europe and the United States in numerous venues including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio, and the National Library in Warsaw, Poland, among others, has been a professor of painting there for the past 13 years.

     

    Here he has gathered his ideas about teaching art.

    Paula Rivas and Christian Wloch’s kinetic light sculptures deal with fractions of the world invisible to the naked eye– the atomic particle realm of light and its properties observed in conventional environments through normal human interaction and our circumstantial but limited optic abilities.

    SIMON PROCTER; "ROLANDE. Death of a painter. Cat." C-print; 47.24 x 62.99 inches (120 x 160 cm); Edition of 10

    In the summer of 2010, the friend of photographer Simon Procter, Rolande, an aged but still very wild paintress, died. Rolande’s family agreed to open her studios one last time “before all was cleared away.” Procter, with help from his friends at Christian Dior Couture and his Paris creative team, shot in this extraordinary space. Young French model Pauline Serreau was given the daunting task of embodying the dead artist. The images in the Roland, Death of a Painter series are a unique example of life, art and death interpreted through contemporary fashion photography.

    Fine art photographer Raphael Mazzucco.

    In March, we shine the spotlight on Raphael Mazzucco, artist and photographer extraordinaire.  Much of his mixed media work, which combines photography, paint and collage elements,  is an inspiring celebration of beauty and nature.  Mazzucco is fascinated with the sensuality of the female nude.  He portrays women as ethereal, yet earthly sexy and provocatively alluring.   Mazzucco captures beauty and his point-of-view has captivated viewers from around the world.

  • On View Now: Simon Procter Chanel Couture Exhibit

    Work by fine art photographer Simon Procter that chronicles couture runway shows he photographed for Chanel over a ten-year period is currently on view at Rosenbaum Contemporary’s Miami gallery, which is located in the lobby of the St. Regis Bal Harbour Hotel.  The show opened on March 25, 2014 and will run until the end of April.
