MIAM-MIAM Art Exhibition

MIAM-MIAM Art Exhibition - Coming Soon in UAE

Volery Gallery & Galerie Julien Cadet proudly presents its latest exhibition on the occasion of the Dubai Art Fair, showcasing a collection of three artists: Jake Clark, Monica Kim Garza and Humberto Poblete-Bustamante.

The French expression “Miam-Miam”, roughly translates to “Yummy Yummy”, which accurately depicts the satisfactory and enticing visual appeal of the presented artists’ generous touch. The recurrent presence of heavy-handed saturation, and variety of shapes, subjects and textures, work in harmony to convey a light-hearted, unapologetic apprehension of life, for us to bite into.

Andy Warhol and Keith Haring being major influences of his, Jake Clark, much like the late artists, draws his inspiration from the quotidian and the variety offered by tri-dimensional paint substrates. Going from local food shops to street signs and horticulture, the Australian artist immortalizes well-known imagery which he then transfers onto ceramics, urns and vases. Clark’s craftmanship goes from the surface to the core of his work, crystalizing modern instances of our society, and resulting in refined, recognizable final productions.

Monica Kim Garza offers a portrayal of coloured, female subjects, free of the patriarchal grip and the Occidental gaze. In a hymn of hedonism and instances of pleasure, the subversion of the classical nude is coupled with a more indigenous approach. The palette, the voluptuous depiction of the bodies and the various scenes all collide as means of communication for deeply human, engaged messages relating to gender roles, sex-positivity and individual expression.

Moving away from the figurative, Humberto Poblete-Bustamante, freely navigates through the realm of the abstract, considering painting as a matter and insufflating motion, dynamism and spontaneity in his work. Honest and raw, the works of the Chilean painter, harness and immortalize his surges of inspiration, which take on the shape of rapid strokes, clashing, colours and abundant layering of oil and acrylic paint. Gesture, authenticity and texture are the keywords of Bustamante’s art, which honour the creation process.
