Jay Walker: Avatar / IRL

If you attended Miami Art Week, you might have seen Jay Walker‘s Avatar / IRL as part of BaseCamp in Magic City Innovation District, which is in Little Haiti.  

Avatar / IRL is an exterior installation consisting of eight 96” x 96” paper-cut, internally lit stencils.

Walker was inspired to create this installation by Oscar Wilde’s thought: “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”Avatar / IRL is an attempt to unpack the relationship between anonymity and honesty, to consider what is in our hearts vs. what is behind our masks. 

If you are in the Miami area in early December, the viewing of Avatar / IRL is free and open to the public at 300-310 NE 61st St, Miami, FL 33137. It is best seen after sunset.

Won Choi's sculptural forms grow out of the human figure, costume and the natural landscape, often merging together to reveal spiritual meaning, something she realized through meditating on the five Natural Elements.

Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.
