LTS and Dylan Peet skip over a Bridge into Miami beach!

This year, we are also privileged to be joining Dylan Peet in a co-curation at Bridge Miami. Bridge leads the way for contemporary art fairs worldwide, and South Beach will be filled with art from more than 80 galleries. Come find us in the Catalina Hotel: Room #209.

Like the Spice’s enormous success at last year’s Fountain Miami left us so excited to return to Florida. We’ll be taking the state by storm with an awesome arsenal of new work by up-and-coming artists.

Also as you might know from previous posts!

Like the Spice is thrilled to announce our participation in December’s SCOPE Miami. SCOPE, Miami’s original emerging art fair, is in its seventh year. Its reputation for adventurous alternative art and a museum-quality program of tours, lectures, and special events has made it one of the most respected art fairs currently in operation. LTS will be at booth 473 in the brand new SCOPE Pavilion, located in the famous Wynwood Art District, alongside 84 other exhibitors from 28 different countries.

Here are all the artists we are Bringing with us for the festivities!

Rachel Beach's multifaceted wood veneer and oil paint constructions are derived from details of art, architecture and design history. Her works have been described as " tough, precise and disciplined with a hard edged cheeriness" and "steeped in a pleasant pluralism, bound by a shared material intelligence".

Liz Brown’s subjects are intended to be amusingly romantic, assembled from the ideal world that is delivered by traditional media. Her goal is a work that exists as itself, rather than a revelation of the thoughts other process of the artist.

Jason Bryant's unique approach to popular culture shows in his lavishly detailed, pristinely finished drawings and canvasses, reinvesting their stars with a bit of privacy, a bit of agency.

Anna Druzcz built her current visual methodology using a combination of photographic and digital techniques. Her most recent series features digitally composed photographic landscapes cobbled together from organic and synthetic sources.

Allison Edge works primarily in oil on canvas and watercolor on paper. Her work captures recurring themes of youth worship and idealized beauty, and are influenced by fashion advertising, boyfriends/friends, Pre-Raphaelites and growing up in the 80’s.

Dean Goelz’s sculptures and drawings depict the slightly odd ways we interact with each other and our environment, and the tenuous grip society and culture have on our gentle animal natures. Using a kind of reverse anthropomorphism, the characters depicted in his work evoke protective instincts usually reserved for cute animals and babies.

Abby Goodman combines animal imagery and manufactured products , creating a visual metaphor for the nameless longing for ideal balance between man and nature. Inspired by her own personal experiences, Goodman’s creatures become characters in a fantasy world that parallels the reality of her daily life.

Eric LoPresti paints from photographs using oils, sometimes with an airbrushed acrylic background. His imagery alludes to hidden forces, the world that exists beside us, and beyond our control.

Jenny Morgan’s physiological portraiture manipulates the figure to expose an individual's idiosyncrasies. Working with people from her own life as subject matter allows Morgan to hone in on specifics of their character and present their personalities as she experiences them.

Ross Racine’s digital prints are drawn completely freehand, on the computer. Joined together the pieces reveal familiar opposites of handmade and digital, organic and mechanical, subjective and technological, physical and virtual.
