GALLERY POULSEN Booth PULSE MIAMI

Proud to be included in Gallery Poulsen's booth at Pulse Miami Beach, voted one of the top five booths to look forward to by New York Observer. Also on view are works by Aaron Johnson, Jean-Pierre Roy and Barnaby Whitfield.

Alanna Martinez writes,

This year Pulse Miami Beach celebrates its tenth anniversary with a new location at Indian Beach Park, and an exhibitor list of over 60 galleries and 160 artists. The fair will run December 4 through 7, and is split into several sections that include Impulse (spotlighting emerging galleries), Projects (large-scale installations, sculptures, and performances), and Points (alternative gallery models and non-profit spaces), in addition to a varied list international galleries that make up the main exhibitor section. The prospect of selecting five standout booths to highlight is a daunting challenge—especially with so many exhibitors previewing work from the fair on Artsy—but nonetheless, here are the galleries we’re looking forward to seeing most at Pulse’s tent this week.

Gallery Poulsen, Copenhagen (Booth D5)
The gallery is located in Denmark, but it will be showing a quartet of American artists at Pulse Miami Beach. Aaron Johnson’s psychosexual, character-filled compositions are recognizable for their bright colors, nightmarish subjects, and encyclopedic cultural references. Barnaby Whitfield’s pastels on paper stay within the same vivid color spectrum of Mr. Johnson’s work, but take a giant step toward figurative realism and a leap into Surrealist territory—with an emphasis on the erotic. Jean-Pierre Roy and Eric White’s oil paintings tackle film genres like science fiction, and noir; Mr. White collaging Hollywood close-ups from the view of the front seat of a car, and Mr. Roy playing with scale, landscape, and alternate dimensions, often through self portraits.
