The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery returns to Florida for Art Miami which opens next week. We will be exhibiting a body of new work by the Spanish-born contemporary artist, Mersuka Dopazo. Working on a large scale, deploying elements of painting, drawing, collage and appliqué, Dopazo creates compelling compositions alive with colour. Her favoured motifs are still-lifes and figurative groups of brilliantly dressed, larger-than-life, individuals. Her work is characterised by both a raw and open energy and a sophisticated technical mastery.
Opportunities to be captivated by intricate details constantly present themselves in Dopazo's work - coats assembled from patches of hand-printed fabrics, or children' shoes made from a puzzle of neon paper scraps on thickly gessoed parquet floors. In addition to its striking tactility, Dopazo’s work is imbued with a forceful and infectious sense of joy.
To all our American friends, please join us at Art Miami at booth AM524 from Tuesday 29 November - Sunday 4 December.

Miami has established itself over the last decade as the Contemporary Art capital of America. The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery: Miami Project adds to this buregoning reputation whilst consolidating the gallery's decade-long presence in the United States. Our inaugural exhibition of Morten Lassen’s work, Beyond Words, opens in the gallery this December.
