It's that time of the month again Second Saturday so check out the latest openings at the Wynwood Art Walk. Luis Gonzalez Palma's sumptuous gilded photographs echo across time. The Guatemalan artist creates baroque portraits of mysterious characters, dressed in opulent, theatrical garb; shanghaied from faraway places; and delivered unexpectedly to tenebrous shores. His subjects often appear trapped in small, ornate antique cases that exude intimacy while twanging the chords of status anxiety, class, and wealth.
"Guarded," his solo show at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, examines a decade of the provocative artist's craft.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 10. Continues through May 1, 2010
