Art In Conversation

Y.Z. Kami with Phong H. Bui

Kami creates matter so concretely that he refers to his paint as skin covering the canvas below.

Didier William with Charles M. Schultz

In Miami, the largest gathering of Didier William’s work yet to be assembled took place. Years of conversations and studio visits with Dr. Erica Moiah James led to a selection of paintings and prints that convey a passage of artistic evolution. The passage is concerned with the figure. Twenty years ago William had been exploring abstract compositions until the murder of Trayvon Martin compelled a new direction. This exhibition begins at that moment and concludes at its chronological counterpart: the birth of a child and the formation of a family.
