Having just been selected as one of nine artists nationwide to be showcased at Art Basel Miami in December 2012, in conjunction with Russell Simmons’ Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation and the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, John Waguespack will exhibit his “New Works” at 111 Minna Gallery November 16, 2012 through January 26, 2013. New Works represents the broad scope of Waguespack’s talent as an artist. Highlighting the exhibit is Pause, an ￼ethereal portrait of Kate Moss looking toward heaven. The haunting portrait is interwoven with abstract layers of acrylic and oil crafted to give texture and dimension to this otherworldly ￼￼piece.
Another standout is Giant, which combines the artist’s linear and deconstruction styles, to produce a powerful depiction of Hollywood icon James Dean in the movie, Giant. Waguespack takes a fine art approach to what might be produced digitally to emphasize the human hand in art, celebrating human creativity and imperfection, marked by the subtle lack of symmetry of the lines.
