Spring Inspiration, an exhibition of Spring-themed works by Hunt Slonem, Mike Hammer, Ivan Loboguerrero and other artists is now on view through May 29 at Rosenbaum Contemporary (150 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Fla.)
The exhibition features several of Hunt Slonem’s blown glass bunny sculptures, the first butterfly-shaped painting by “blob” artist Mike Hammer, and works by Ivan Loboguerrero, a new artist to the gallery.
Best known for his paintings of rabbits, butterflies and birds, blown glass is a new medium for Slonem, whose career has spanned nearly five decades. The exhibition features both unique and editioned blown glass bunnies in clear, iridescent, shiny, matte, opaque and macchia glass in a variety of colors.
Hammer’s butterfly painting is the first of a new series for the artist, in which he is expanding beyond rectangular “canvases” to shapes such as butterflies and circles, while still incorporating his signature, layered poured painting technique through which he builds stalactite-type “blobs.”
The works by Loboguerrero feature his characteristic painting style in which an abstract environment slowly transforms before the viewer’s eyes into a figurative work whose intention is to invite an encounter with spirituality
Spring Inspiration can be viewed in person during regular gallery hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and online at www.rosenbaumcontemporary.com.
