|STEVE MILLS: CONTEXT Art Miami|
|We are thrilled to show Steve Mills' stunning new painting Five in a Row in our booth at CONTEXT Art Miami next week. Five in a Rowdepicts a set of glass-blown marbles resting on a slab of dark emperador marble. With its sleek, limitless horizon the marbles almost float above their own reflections.|
Mills' paintings take many hours to complete and stop people in their tracks.
Be sure to stop by our Booth C209 to see this painting in person.
For more information on Mills and CONTEXT Art Miami, please contact the gallery.

Below Sea Level, the latest body of work from New Orleans artist Michel Varisco, imagines a metaphorical future for citizens after global sea levels have risen to overtake the land. In these magical realist photographs and assemblages, Varisco explores the intimate and complex experience of life in an endangered community, where citizens feel such a powerful connection to their home that they would rather reinvent themselves than abandon it. Unconventionally shot while submerged underwater, Below Sea Level also functions as a performative collaboration; Varisco gets in the water with a diverse group of residents who have been gently coached to surrender to their subaqueous state, with no air tanks or breathing masks to support them. These photographs establish a profound connection between the viewer, the subject, and the artist herself – all of whom float silently together in this strange oceanic world. Below Sea Level embodies a poetic response to the predicted fate of rising waters, as we struggle, adapt, float, and endure to create a new world beneath the water’s surface.
Below Sea Level is in conjunction with PhotoNOLA and Michel Varisco’s Prospect.4 installation, Turning (Prayer Wheels for the Mississippi River), a permanent public sculptural installation on the Lafitte Greenway in New Orleans.
