On the Frontline
Chire Regans (VantaBlack)
This exhibition brings together five Miami-based artists to create a series of portraits honoring those on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic at Mt. Sinai Medical Center.
These portraits, created in conjunction with the collection of interviews and images, represent the artist’s attempt to honor and embody the spirit and nature of these individuals.
About the artists
Stephen Arboite (b.1987) is a multidisciplinary artist of Haitian descent who was born and raised in New York City and now resides in Miami, Florida. Arboite’s work considers beauty outside of classical aesthetic paradigms; and places an emphasis on spiritual transformation and evolution of human consciousness.
Morel Doucet (b. 1990, Pilate, Haiti) is a Miami-based multidisciplinary artist and arts educator. His work portrays a contemporary depiction of the Black experience, cataloging a powerful record of environmental decay at the intersection of economic inequity, the commodification of industry, personal labor, and race.
Mark Fleuridor is a Haitian American artist born and raised in Miami, Florida. Fleuridor explores his own personal history within his background and familial experiences. These topics are explored through mediums such as painting, performance, quilting and collage.
William Osorio is a Miami-based artist who was born in Cuba in 1989. His artistic practice consists of a game of concealment and revelation of the subject; in an attempt to analyze human behavior. The human figure as pictorial element becomes an unavoidable reference.
Chire Regans (VantaBlack) believes that her role as an artist is to allow pertinent societal concerns to inform her practice and to amplify the voices of those she engages with through her work. Over the past decade VantaBlack has become immersed in community advocacy and social narratives depicted without distortion, in a variety of mediums.
