Reception: Thursday July 10, 2014 6-8 PM

The abstract expressionist acrylic and colored pencil paintings of Dominican Republic artist Payami (Miguel Payano) are living canvases, full of energy and movement, and replete with human emotion. In his artistic process, Payami uses a spatula, brush, and other implements to lay the paint thickly onto the canvas, resulting in multi-dimensional and highly textured images, where broad swaths of color are juxtaposed with fine lines and often delicate forms. A hallmark of Payami’s work is his use of color, which is inspired by his home in the Dominican Republic: colors that are tropical and breathing, with lots of life and plenty of inertia.

Central to Payami’s work is the texture he creates on the canvas, providing depth which in turn imparts much of the emotionality and meaning contained within each image. As he explains, “I need the texture because it represents me — it empowers me. All the detail, the combination of the color with the texture... it’s energy. It’s explosive and it lives in me until I get it out on canvas.” Payami currently lives and works in Miami, Florida.
