Mali Parkerson, founder of The Hue Art, is proud to announce a collaboration with Jose Frances of +598 Gallery to introduce the oeuvre of Edward Granger. “Chromaticity” will be his first ever exhibition in Miami, inaugurating October 24th, 2016 and will be on view until January 20th, 2017. The artist will be present for the opening reception on Saturday October 22nd, 2016 from 6 to 9 PM.
A native of Louisiana, Granger’s work revolves entirely around the study of color, where his architectural background serves as the structure and it is the exploration and use of color that gives each piece dimension and depth. Many works evoke Josef Albers’ “Homage to the Square”, whereby the same disciplined approach to composition is used in Granger’s vibrant and often times irregularly shaped canvases, but with a widely technological approach.
The artist describes his work as “awkwardly beautiful fantasy worlds, while my aesthetic plays with the underlying graphs, threads, and fibers of color space technologies behind print and digital images.” It is the simplicity of form and prominence of color that best defines his audacious and playful oeuvre.
In addition to his works on canvas and paper, Granger’s oeuvre extends to murals in New York, Berlin and most recently San Francisco. “Chormaticity” will also include an outdoor mural in the Wynwood Art District, where Granger will join renowned street artists in this iconic neighbourhood.
Granger’s work caught the attention of the Hermès Vitrines D’Artiste program and in 2015 he was commissioned to design their storefronts for the Madison Avenue flagship store in New York. Other luxury brands soon followed, such as Ralph Lauren and Public Supply. He has been reviewed in Architectural Digest, Surface Magazine, Cultured Magazine, Paper Magazine, Vogue Brasil, L’uomo Vogue and featured in The New York Times, to name a few.
Jose Frances tightly curates a unique, affordable online gallery of fine art photography. Drawing on years of experience in NYC’s interior design industry, Frances has identified a much neglected area in the home decor marketplace. +598 so named after Frances’ native Uruguayan country code, offers limited small edition, fine art prints tailored and selected for the discerning buyer. Frances’ exclusive stable includes artists whose work covers compelling and mutually distinct visual realms.
The Hue is Mali Parkerson’s latest solo venture to find, produce, collaborate and share art experiences around the globe. The Hue, in addition to exhibiting curated shows throughout the year at the Wynwood location, brings together brands, people, other galleries and artists through art happenings via modern-day culture practices such as social media, digital content, events, pop-ups, fairs and more.
More than just another art curator, The Hue is art-culture.
