Stopped off at Villa 221 on Northeast 17th Street here in Miami to check out a solo show by the artist 131. His work, which is influenced by math, science, numbers and patterns, explores the idea of deconstructing art down to it’s molecular level. Two of my favorite pieces from the show entitled “Amoeba Battle” and “Periodic Table” depict a fantastic and chaotic microscopic world. I also really enjoyed his recycled doors which he covered with 125 photos compiled over the past several years of names and messages carved into city sidewalks and then sealed in clear epoxy resin. It was a really great exhibit, visually and conceptually. You can see more of 131’s work on his site 131projects.com.
A special thanks to Aaron and Frank of Villa 221, an amazing venue for shows and events.
