Brazilian-born Miami-based artist Ernesto Kunde has found inspiration in the architecture, lifestyle and art of Miami since he first relocated to the city just over seven years ago. His most recent series of works, large scale mangrove paintings inspired by research trips to the Everglades and the Florida Keys, are now presented in an exhibition at the Swenson Gallery of the Bakehouse Art Complex.
Curated by Ananda DeMello, Kunde's solo exhibiton "Symbiotic Promise," examines South Florida's mangroves, the native flora, and humanity's relationship with nature. DeMello's curatorial approach creates a space designed to heighten awareness about that symbiotic relationship. Surrounded by mangroves viewers are transported into an artistic version of a sensory nature experience.
“Symbiotic Promise” runs until June 8, 2014 at the Swenson Gallery at the Bakehouse Art Complex, 561 NW 32nd Street, Miami 33127
