More from Miami: Fountainhead Residency


The Fountainhead residency hosts artists from all over the world to visit and work in Miami. They stay in a refurbished vintage mid-century house, where some work, while others are given studios in a warehouse space with local artists. The residency offers a great way to engage Miami's art scene. Recently, I met resident Yeni Mao, who since returned to New York (www.yenimao.com) and visited current residents Kathryn Zazenski and Trevor Avery at the Fountainhead studio.

The large drawing in progress--

 And finalizing...she parses commonly used words into lengths and measures
A result of her family's tradition of free-associative wordplay in verbal tournaments?
She also creates drawings that trace and reflect opposite word pairings

Trevor Amery at Fountainhead: practicing presence at the portal: entry mats

A work in progress whereby he makes and serves Cuban coffees to initiate social exchange

The shared studio

I did not visit Jamey Morrill's studio, but he is also in residence. Here is a detail of his work in progress at Fountainhead.
