The thing which is not: two artists, two poems, in the New Times

“the thing which is not: two artists, two poems” at Emerson Dorsch

Emerson Dorsch’s latest show pairs sculpture from Washington State-born artist Shauna Fahley with Cuban immigrant painter Ernesto Gutiérrez Moya, both responding to poetry by Carl Phillips and Jose Martí. Fahley’s equestrian statues, broken into pieces, recall the ancient Greco-Roman heroic monuments still replicated across the world in various contexts. They’re situated in conversation with Gutiérrez Moya’s fantastical canvases, painted in a style reminiscent of Baroque and Renaissance artists such as Brueghel and El Greco, as well as darker symbolists such as Böcklin and Beksiński. On view through Saturday, March 23, at Emerson Dorsch, 5900 NW Second Ave., Miami; 305-576-1278;
